I need to retrieve and open a file stored on a Unix server on a network as a delimited text file via FTP or other protocol.  I'm using VS2005, .net 2.0 and C#. Can someone point out where I can find sample code on how to get this done?  Thanks.

There's some code for downloading a file from FTP in C# on MSDN help:

Alternatively, if HTTP were to be used, there's a smaller way to do it here, although it appears not to work with FTP:
