Hello Folks,


Is it possible to download files from a ftp server within FileMaker?  In other words, I would like to show users the daily FileMaker back-up files. 


Since our system is on the WAN, exporting thousands of records is too slow. I would like for them to download the most recent back-up file via ftp.  What's the best way to handle this??? 


I don't want the user to leave FileMaker and open an FTP app.  If they can use something like open url or show the FTP in a web-container, that would work.  Thank you for any feedback !!!
