Using a csv hosted on an FTP server

We have a Magmi product import working when the csv is in the var/import directory, but ideally would like to use a file which is hosted on an external ftp server, does Magmi have this capability? I can see you can use a remote csv, but am unsure about the fields they don’t look like standard FTP fields, but I may be missing something.

Thank you for your help

Yes, it can be done with Magmi. Additionally, if you could do it, you could write your own integration for an external FTP server using the Magmi datapump API in PHP. Otherwise, there is no problem having it on an external server.
