ftp is the name of an Internet transfer control that you need to add to your toolbox.

These will help you with what you can add in the .Execute method.

This will download all the files with extension .EXE from the server. You can change that ofcourse.
It is important to use the .stillexecuting event because is has to wait till the command finishes :

    Dim BUFFER() As String: Dim ITEM As Variant
    With Inet1
        .URL = "ftp://www.aclassreizen.nl"
        .UserName = "edited"
        .Password = "edited"
        .Execute , "DIR"
        While .StillExecuting: DoEvents: Wend
        BUFFER = Split(.GetChunk(1024, icString), vbCrLf)
        For Each ITEM In BUFFER
            If UCase(Right(ITEM, 4)) = ".EXE" Then
                .Execute , "GET ITEM C:\temp\" & ITEM
                While .StillExecuting: DoEvents: Wend
            End If
        Next
    End With
