    Here is my problem.

    I am trying to get datafeeds from Linkshare. One requirement is a static IP address. I do not have one and do not want to pay the additional $30 per month to have a static IP. So I thought I could use my web hosters server IP address (where my site is hosted) to "pull" the files from the linkshare FTP site. I downloaded a few PHP based ftp programs, installed them on my server and cannot connect to linkshare. I can connect to all my other ftp accounts.

    Does anyone know how I can get the files from linkshare to my server?

    Thank you in advance!

    Make sure that Linkshare has added the IP address for your server.

    I'm doing the same thing, so I know it can work.

    You may want to test the FTP capability with a shell at your host. You can easily set up either a Cron job, or do it with a PHP script.

    Are you sure the nurses know you're using the computer?

    To start, just use the stock "ftp" command from a shell prompt to test it.

    I use "lftp", which has a very handy "mirror" option.
