I want to send/receive the latest file from an FTP site, how can I poll the sight and receive the latest file placed on the site.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

For windows have a look at http://www.2brightsparks.com/syncback/syncback-hub.html

This is cheap (free for personal use) software that can be configured to check if there is a newer version, and will then FTP it and create an archive of the different versions. Just run an FTP server on the remote site, and SyncBack does the rest.

Hope this helps.
