Not so much the OS for sure, but Dave is having a problem finding a
compatible DLL to work with the UI that will work on all windows machines.
He's found that it's not consistent between versions and even installations
of Windows.

I'm trying to elmininate having multiple applications that do the same or
similar things.

Methinks there may be some misperceptions or misunderstandings there....
Windows works just fine with SFTP.

Windows is just the OS -- and the FTP client program (that operates on top
of the OS) is what's responsible for handling the encryption.  Different
things altogether.  SFTP works just fine on a variety of OS's.

Automated FTP retrieval has been discussed many times before on this
listserv, including for SFTP and FTPS (they're different).

You could do a search through the CRTech archives, but I've mentioned FTP
Voyager as one example of an FTP client that can be set up to automatically
mirror remote FTP sites or directories.  You can set up automatic file
renaming based on wildcards and specific nomenclature requirements, and the
FTP Voyager service just runs in the background.  (You
access/configure/control the service through a separate GUI from the normal
manual-transfer client.)

You can also use the separate GUI manual FTP client as a replacement for
Filezilla, but I really like Filezilla so it's still my go-to FTP client for
manual file transfers.  The two are almost identical in their feature sets,


It's provided as a *free* Windows client by Solarwinds that's the
recommended client to access their (very expensive) paid FTP server program,
but it stands alone and works quite well with any number of FTP (both secure
and insecure) servers (regardless of the OS of the server).

There are other low-cost programs out there that can handle FTPS or SFTP, so
do some homework.  You're not going to be left out in the cold and have to
manually retrieve files via FTP clients unless you really *want* to do so.
