External Linux Server to QV

Hello All, We need to pull the some 3rd Party data into Qlikview to fulfill my requirements.

The external server have the ziped folder having all 80 csv files. So I need to pull data from those files. How Can I pull the External server ziped folder ?

Is it possible or what is the best way ?

Linux has a wide range of possible ftp server packages. A QlikView load script can connect directly to such a server using the ftp protocol (in script editor, check the "Use FTP" checkbox and click the Table Files... button. You'll get a dialog where you can enter credentials and all). Tie the two together.

... or your could use something like Samba on your Linux box to present a Linux mount / folder as a Windows UNC Share via SMB.
