FTP file download and reading line by line with PowerShell

You can download a file from FTP and you can use “foreach” to process every line of the file.

# FTP Config
$FTPHost = "10.10.10.5"
$Username = "admin"
$Password = "12345678"
$FTPFile = "log/test.log"
 
# FTP Log File Url
$FTPFileUrl = "ftp://" + $FTPHost + "/" + $FTPFile
 
# Create FTP Connection
$FTPRequest = [System.Net.FtpWebRequest]::Create("$FTPFileUrl") 
$FTPRequest.Credentials = New-Object System.Net.NetworkCredential($Username, $Password) 
$FTPRequest.Method = [System.Net.WebRequestMethods+Ftp]::DownloadFile
$FTPRequest.UsePassive = $false
$FTPRequest.UseBinary = $true
$FTPRequest.KeepAlive = $false
 
# Get FTP File
$FTPResponse = $FTPRequest.GetResponse()
$ResponseStream = $FTPResponse.GetResponseStream()
$FTPReader = New-Object System.IO.Streamreader -ArgumentList $ResponseStream
do
{
	Write-Host $FTPReader.ReadLine()
}
while ($FTPReader.ReadLine() -ne $null)
$FTPReader.Close()
}

I used “do-while” to output each line of file.
