Step 3: Add Script Task component and paste the below given code in it

‘connecting website using HTTP connection manager
Dim nativeObject As Object = Dts.Connections(“HTTP Connection Manager”).AcquireConnection(Nothing)

‘ Create a new HTTP client connection
Dim connection As New HttpClientConnection(nativeObject)

‘Download the html page to your local drive
connection.DownloadFile(“<Drive>:\testing\Bing.html”, True)

Step 4: Execute package and look for Bing.html file in path you have given in the DowndloadFile function

    Thank you. This did work for me on my personal machine. But, it is failing on my work machine. Do you think it would be a firewall issue?
