Remote file readers with password authentication

I would like to read a file in a remote SVN or FTP repository. ( http or ftp access) I may have to provide a password in this process. Is there a node which I can configure to acheive the desired result?

If I am on an enterprise cluster, I would also like to setup a passphare less authentication ( SSH). So how can I create an ETL user account that is used to run Knime workflows and supply this at the time of execution? ( perhaps a CLI on UNIX like systems )

perhaps Palladian can do this?


At least for http you can provide the login credentials in the URL: http://username:password@host/path. Maybe this works for ftp, too.
