I am trying to access an ftp server and read an XML file that I can then parse and write certain information to a database.

I attempted to read the XML using Magpie but get an (HTTP Error: Invalid protocol "ftp") error when I attempt to connect to the server. Does anyone know of an rss reader/parser that would allow me to connect to an ftp server to accomplish this task.

Any and all suggestions would be most welcome!


I figured it out.
Using the php ftp functions I copy the xml locally and then parse it from my web server.
