Download files from WebDav with Python

Hello all,
I am trying to download files from a WebDav server that is using https.
Does anyone how I can accomplish this using Python or some other
script.  I want to download a file, rename on the server, then move it to a directory and
rename it there also.
Thanks,
Jason

I assume you plan to program this yourself.

import urllib
sourceURL1 = 'http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Programming_Languages/Python/Q_21088729.html'
targetFilePath1 = 'new_file_path_and_name.html'
nf = urllib.urlretrieve(sourceURL1, targetFilePath1)
sourceURL2 = 'http://www.experts-exchange.com/images/pe/166149.jpg'
targetFilePath2 = 'mugshot_of_ramrom.jpg'
nf = urllib.urlretrieve(sourceURL2, targetFilePath2)

This won't rename the file on the server, but it will allow you to get a file from an http server and save it to whatever path as whatever filename you like. A brief test with https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_login-run suggests it runs with https as well.

Hope this helps...
