Smile Direct download of internet resources to Linux server from a Windows client

I can't quite figure out where the best place to ask this is, so if you think this should be somewhere else, please do let me know!

I am a heavy user of both Linux and Windows operating systems. I have a home server running Linux which is predominately used for data hosting and distribution. Often, when using a Windows computer, I download a file from the internet and then transfer it to the server for archiving in two separate processes.

Recently, I have experimented with instructing the server to download resources directly using the wget command. However, it gets rather tedious using wget for every file I wish to download.

My question is this: is there a GUI program that runs under a Windows client that can interface with my server, likely via SSH, whereby I can specify an URL for download and a location for the data to be stored on the server?

I know it would be a relatively easy program to write myself, but if something that has the functionality I desire already exists, I see no reason in doing so. (There is also the small problem that I haven't written a program from scratch since school! )

Thanks in advance for your help!

Actually, don't worry about this here, I'm going to ask on the Software forum as I believe it would be more suitable. If somebody can tell me how to delete posts I will remove both this and my previous post.
