If you're talking about the shows, they are copyrighted material and you don't have permission to do that.

This is the flash offered by an productive house for our company. They just give their link and we need to copy it to our web server. We have user id and password to access.

We need those files and put on the server. The production house have techincal issue to put them on a FTP server. This is a e-booklet for our products in flash

There is nothing like that visible at that link.  You must have to login somewhere first.

Yes, I can login to the production house and see the flash e-catalog.

Do you mean there is no way to copy it to our web server ?

Depends on a lot of factors.
Is the flash FULLY programmed stand alone (no external files necessary)? Yes, copying 1:1 to your web server should work.
Flash depends on certain things (loads other absolute/relative path/files), might break when it gets to your web server.
Then it also depends on your login page. Will it drop you into a file explorer type environment? Or just logs into the pages already displaying the flash in operational state? In the file environment, you can copy them easily. In the fully operational page, you have to dig through the source code to find and fetch the flash files yourself.
