As for ftp transfers... why not consider Indy components... they are very easy to use for easy jobs like this:
Place a idFtp component on the form ... set the propertyes like hostname, user and password... and then
in an onButton Event place this code:
idFtp1.Connect(True,500);
IdFTP1.ChangeDir('lala');
IdFTP1.Get('pkg.txt','C:\pkg.txt',True);

Already did the www thing by using idHTTP from indy.

Pretty easy.

Stream:= TMemoryStream.Create;
IdHTTP1.Get(URL,Stream);
Stream.SaveToFile(DestFileName);
Stream.Free;

Isn't it the answer you wanted?
Didn't I answer to both your questions?
Then why the B grade?
