Open and retrieve Web files

How can I take a file from the Web and -- with one process -- call to either an executable or a CL program, and have the capability to transfer a file from the users PC to the iSeries? Presently I have to download the file to the PC, set off a transfer to the iSeries and then set off a program to do the RPG processing. This is at least three transactions or more. I know there must be a method for doing this as one transaction. Can you suggest a book or Internet site for more information?

Try Brad Stone's site. He has the source to a utility that will allow you to open the HTTP ports and retrieve the file from the Web site directly to your system. You can get there from here.
