0KB file when downloading with SSIS VB script from SharePoint

Hello

I have a VB script that uses the HTTP connection manager of SSIS to download a specific file from a sharepoint url.

The problem I'm getting is that the file is created, but with no content (0KB).

I can connect and download the file when using the web browser, but can't even connect to the same URL when using the HTTP connection manager.

Anyone with ideas with this?

My impression has been that about the only thing you can directly use an HTTP connection manager for is to obtain the connection string. I was surprised that you were able to obtain even an empty file, though, and with a bit of Googling I came across this blog post (skip down to the 2nd example). Is there anything in there that helps?


Here is the stackoverflow question that led me to the above post: How to make an HTTP request from SSIS?
