Automating VSFTP (VShell) - Prefer PowerShell, VBScript also OK


I'm an absolute newbie who knows the basics of how to use VShell (VSFTP) via the command-line and is looking to automate via a script the following:

1. Connect to a remote host (w/key, keyphrase, username)
2. Navigate to a remote folder
3. Get list of files, see if they match a particular regular expression or similar
4. Download those matching files to a local folder.
5. Disconnect.

I've got scripts that do this sort of thing for WinSCP but I'd like to use VSFTP. My scripting prowess is limited to PowerShell these days but still reasonably comfortable with VBScript.

Any examples or assistance much appreciated.
