The remote file specified by RemoteFile is downloaded to the local file specified by LocalFile, or it is retrieved through the Transfer event, if the LocalFile property is "" (empty string). RemoteFile is either an absolute path on the server, or a path relative to RemotePath.

If there is no SSH session in place, one is automatically created by the component first.

Example (Download a File)

SFTPControl.Localfile = "C:\localfile.txt"
SFTPControl.RemoteFile = "remotefile.txt"

SFTPControl.Localfile = "C:\localfile2.txt"
SFTPControl.RemoteFile = "folder/remotefile2.txt"

Error Handling (C++)

This method returns a result code; 0 indicates success, while a non-zero error code indicates that this method encountered an error during its execution. If an error occurs, the GetLastError() method can be called to retrieve the associated error message. (Note: This method's result code can also be obtained by calling the GetLastErrorCode() method after it returns.)
