Thanks guys for the reply.
   Actually i had mistaken that the download picks the file from web 
server, but after talking to my developers i realized that they are 
internally getting the file using ftp.
   I wanted to know how can i "pull a file from ftp". Is there any ruby 
library to pull or push files through "ftp"

Cheers
