Script help - downloading files from multiple computers

Hi all,

So i am new to scripting and I am having issues figuring out where to start. Hope someone can help.

I have 20+ computers that I connect to and grab .txt files. I would like to create a bat file that will connect to the computers and download the files to my local. This will save me time from having to manually connect individually and drag over the files. These computers are secured so I was thinking sftp but I am not sure how to take care of this.

Thanks in advance.

ps. the systems I am connecting to are running XP embedded
