    Default Ftp from asp

    What is the best way for me to connect to an ftp server from ftp? Not using a commercial component. I was playing with Microsoft.XMLHTTP but it treats it as html that way. And it returns the results in html format. I can get around this by parsing the filenames form the HTML, but I was just curious if there was a better way. What I need is this: To connect to an ftp server, and get the most current file (the file list may look like the below). Then, once I determine the most current file, I will need to download it. Then open it, and parse it. Anyone have any ideas of how I should do this?<BR><BR>Thanks.<BR><BR><BR>File list:<BR>filename-2003-03-01<BR>filename-2003-04-01<BR>filename.20030301<BR>filename.20030401<BR>
