downloading file from http secure server

I need help to find out how can I download a file from http secure server in Open VMS.
Currently I ftp the site to get my file, this going to change and file will be post on http secure server. I am using OPen VMS Alpha v7.2 and like to know how to replace ftp download to http server download

Re: downloading file from http secure server

Generally, download via HTTP can be accomplished by several tools, e.g. Lynx and wget have VMS ports. I*think* wget also has HTTPS support.

If you're willing to do a bit of programming, Perl with LWP (and Net::SSLeay) can be a good solution, too.

HTH,

Re: downloading file from http secure server

Thanks Martin for quick response. Mostly, I do Oracle programing and not very familiar with Perl and other tools you mention.
I would be help full if there is some sample program or a tool that can replace FTP download.

Thanks

Re: downloading file from http secure server

you could use curl
http://curl.haxx.se/download.html#VMS

from the web site
Curl is a command line tool for transferring files with URL syntax, supporting FTP, FTPS, HTTP, HTTPS, GOPHER, TELNET, DICT, FILE and LDAP. Curl supports HTTPS certificates, HTTP POST, HTTP PUT, FTP uploading, kerberos, HTTP form based upload, proxies, cookies, user+password authentication, file transfer resume, http proxy tunneling and a busload of other useful tricks.
