SSIS: download and process ftp files

I'm trying to build a package that will download any files from an ftp site. The process consists of getting the file list in the ftp directory, looping through each one filename in the recordset and processing each file individually.

I've got it to a point where I get the file list, if the file count > 0 then perform a ForEach loop which does a ForEach Variable Enumerator based on a recordset containing the names in the remote directory and maps a object variable that stores the remote file name to be processed in the script. This is where I'm stuck. In the script I can't seem to access the value of the remote filename.

Does anyone done a similar routine and can provide info or links to reference material on how to accomplish this, or how can I extract the remote filename data I need?

I don't think you can access a file on a FTP site directly from SSIS or anything else for that matter until you get it on the computer where you need to access it. What I'm tyrying to say is that after you get the filelist from FTP site you should run som FTP script to get the file localy then you could read their content one by one to put them in some SQL table. You should be able to do that via SFTP as nobody wants FTP open on a SQL server box. Is this what you are trying to do?
