Downloading a file is very simple in .NET and only few lines are required.
Dim oNetwork,strServerLocation,strClientLocation 'URL of the file which you want to download strServerLocation="http://ist.psu.edu/current-students/pdf/resume-objective- statements.pdf" 'Specify where to save it along with the file name including file extension. strClientLocation="C:DownloadHere.pdf" 'Creating Network object Set oNetwork= DotNetFactory.CreateInstance("Microsoft.VisualBasic.Devices.Network","Microsoft.Vi sualBasic") 'Downloading the file into specified client location oNetwork.DownloadFile strServerLocation,strClientLocation Set oNetwork =Nothing
Once the above code is run, the file will be downloaded at the specified client location.
We can also ping a server and upload a file using Network class.
