Good question. I've not done that that I can remember.

Nick,

Are you able to grab a file from a secure https site (not just http)
with copy? I am curious to see if this is Windows issue, a network
issue, or a Stata issue.

Is there a way to download a file from a secure website using Stata?

I tried copy "https://www.XYZ..."; data.txt, but that generates an
unknown network protocol error.

I also tried using wget as described here
(http://www.andrewdyck.com/download-and-unzip-data-files-from- stata/),
but that method appears to fail for any sort of website.

I am using Stata 11.1 on 64-bit Windows 7. I use a proxy to access the
internet.

I am not doing anything shady if that is a concern.
