you can try the Ultimate Net Xtra from
You can download things using the built in downloadnetthing lingo command (see http://www.lingoworkshop.com/Articles/downloading_files.php for a tutorial and notes on getting around proxy issues). However, I believe this uses HTTP rather than FTP as the communication protocol). If you really want to use FTP, you can run FTP sessions using the free Mulituser Xtra (see http://www.lingoworkshop.com/Testzone/FTP_Client_Test.php) - however, I don't know if this will handle binary files (text files work fine).
I’ve used the directFTP xtra in several projects ( http://www.directxtras.com/DFTP_home.asp?UUID=1881403&). It’s simple and straight forward to use as long as you’re comfortable using asynchronous net commands (this would be true no matter what approach you take). One quick word of caution … carefully consider your target audience before using FTP as a transfer protocol … We built a prototype for a corporate client only to find their security conscious IT department had locked off all external ports except http (port 80) and even then employees had to submit justification in writing for why they should be granted access.
