Connecting to XML on a FTP?

Our meterology agency provides a number of feeds via their FTP website:

ftp://ftp.bom.gov.au/anon/gen/fwo/IDV10750.xml

ftp://ftp2.bom.gov.au/anon/gen/fwo/IDV10753.xml

 

I tried hooking the 'Poll an External Website for XML' input connector to the above endpoints, but the connector fails to get a response.  

 

Is there a way to do this within GeoEvent such as adjusting the transport used by the XML input connector?

 

I understand it could be achieved through scheduling downloading these XML files to a folder and have GeoEvent watch the folder for new files, but was hoping on avoiding another moving part.
