FTP with WIN API?

FTP with WIN API?

FTP with WIN API?

(OP)
I am trying to download files from a Sun Solaris(unix) server from a Win XP machine.  I have been doing this via a couple different FTP programs for years.  However, with a new firewall installed on the XP machine, it requires FTP in passive mode.  The Win XP ftp.exe will not do passive mode, which is what I had written the latest FTP script in.

So, I am looking for a little guidance on where to start to run a script through the Win API, if it will run in passive mode.  For all I know, the API may not handle passive mode either.  I am working in Visual Foxpro, but VB code can be translated.

Can someone steer me toward a good starting point?

RE: FTP with WIN API?

(OP)
I think I need to revise my question.  What I really want to do is script IE.  I figured that the WIN API would be needed.  However, I'm not even sure whether scripting IE is possible.  Is it?

Any input is appreciated>
