you can use wget, but all those would be terrible ways to do it. for a
single byte change in a file, you would discard the local copy and
download the entire file from the upstream server. rsync will do a diff
kind of thing and is about the only sane way of doing it. prevail on your
organization to open the port. does your organization really believe in
port number / protocol based security?
