Downloading multiple files.... is it possible?

(imported topic written by tratz91)

I am trying to meet a new internal requirement to author a fixlet whose action is to download multiple files using a file name mask such as “file*.zip”. I must use the “download now” command since I have to include relevance in the download statement to make certain that only those files appropriate for a given machine are downloaded to that machine. Applicability is determined by a value in the registry.

Is this possibe with BigFix? Any creative suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hi tratz,

I don’t believe the HTTP protocol supports downloading the way you describe… perhaps use a network share to copy


(you will need to either use a null session share or the RunAsCurrentUser.exe tool for the agent to access the share).
