Like I said, you have to be able to login as a user on the unix system.  Since you have the Rumba system, you must have a login that you use with it.  If you have permission, you could use FTP to get files.  I don't know what else you're talking about.

To get it directly from a file on the Unix system, you need to be able to login to that system and have permissions to access the file.  To get it indirectly, you would have to have a program on that system that you could request the file from like FTP or a web page that has access to the files.
