Hi there!

You could try WGet for Windows. You can download it from here: http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/wget.htm

Hope it helps!

So is there an equivalent as Im not able to install software on the clients pc.

I can login in via ftp if needed via cmd.
What data/files is that you are trying to "get", ie. just one or perhaps a handful of files on a regular basis, or are you creating a mirror of a site?

You could always try URL2File if you are just looking to grab a few files from the web:

Look for the link to the standalone .exe:

Download URL2File.zip
Manual setup and manual uninstall.

Yes, I know it's old, but it works and leaves no registry trace on the host computer.
Thank you SWHosting
