Hello,

I am new to TCL and I am looking for examples of TCL scripts using the FTP libs.  I need to pull a file (anytime the file changes) from an FTP server and save it to a desktop.  Any advice/examples would be appreciated.  Thank you for your time.

you can use simple batch file to login via ftp and get the file. You can create text file like one below, call it ftp.txt

open myserver
myusername
mypassword
bin
cd /path/to/mydir
get myfile
bye

This can then be executed, like this:

ftp -s:ftp.txt

this can be scheduled on the windows system
