I would use a script.
Assuming the destination is a windows computer, you can use the ftp command-line to open the FTP connection to the file source and "get" the file,  then call your favorite zip program to decompress it to the final folder location.

This also assumes you can access the file FROM the DMZ- if this is not correct, we'll need a different method, like running the script on a LAN PC, and hosting FTP on the DESTINATION instead.


I can provide more details, or an example if you need, just let me know.

Am running a server (CI) on a internal machine which triggers this transfer. I cannot install my CI server on the DMZ(as it has a web interface).

I'm still not quite clear; which machine is hosting FTP, and which machine is running windows? (It sounds like the window box is the NON-CI server running in the DMZ.)  [not familiar with CI, whats it stand for?]

CI stands for continuous integration. I build a zip file on the windows server located on the internal network. This ZIP file has static content which needs to be deployed to the webserver in the DMZ. The transfer of the zip file and unzipping the contents in the DMZ has to be triggered by a series of commands from the internal windows server.
