You say you have a linux box *available*, but what box are the server
and log files on? As people have alluded to, there are ways to do this
with both DOS or Unix shell scripting, using just the command line FTP
that comes with both. That would be a simpler solution than bringing in
another package. Let me know which OS you want to use and I might have
some examples around that could help you.
