Hi Everyone,

I have a task to create an automated script to download files from FileZilla in a particular path and transfer them to a path on the network drive. After the files have been transferred, sent out a notification with the files names let the request know that the files are on the network drive.

I'm open to other script example other than PowerShell.

I don't have a script yet, so I was looking for some example.

I was trying with WinSCP in an RDP environment but an Error listing directory

Saying it could not retrieve directory listing.

No ports available.

When I try it on FileZilla it works fine without no issue.

The are many resources that already provide modules. samples for this FTP use case. Not specifically FileZilla however, but that should not really be a different thing.

PowerShell FTP Client Module
The PSFTP module allow you to connect and manage the contents of ftp account. Module contain set of function to get list of items, download and send files on ftp location.
