"start" ftp? client or server? what do you actually want to achieve?

unsuprisingly, the command to start the ftp client is "ftp"

you do not even need FTP you can just use scp

http://www.siliconvalleyccie.com/lin...ssh-server.htm

check out the linky. i use that every time i need to scp from the house to the office.

in short it is very simple, fast, and secure, thus the s in front of the cp command.

secure copy.

read that link it gives the exact syntax for moving files either to your local system or from the local system.

as for more then one file i suppose the standard wild card of * should work:

direct quote off of that page:

Copying Files To The Local Linux Box

If you understand how scp represents remote filenames, you can start copying files fairly easily. For example, to copy file /tmp/software.rpm on the remote machine to the local directory /usr/rpm use the commands



[root@bigboy tmp]# scp root@smallfry:/tmp/software.rpm /usr/rpm

root@smallfry's password:

software.rpm 100% 1011 27.6KB/s 00:00

[root@bigboy tmp]#



To copy the file /tmp/software.rpm on the remote machine to the local directory /usr/rpm using TCP port 435, use the commands



[root@bigboy tmp]# scp -P 435 root@smallfry:/tmp/software.rpm /usr/rpm

root@smallfry's password:

software.rpm 100% 1011 27.6KB/s 00:00

[root@bigboy tmp]#



Copying Files To The Remote Linux Box

Copying files to the local Linux server now becomes intuitive. For examples, to copy file /etc/hosts on the local machine to directory /tmp on the remote server



[root@bigboy tmp]# scp /etc/hosts root@192.168.1.103:/tmp

root@192.168.1.103's password:

hosts 100% 1011 27.6KB/s 00:00

[root@bigboy tmp]#
so should not be all that hard to grab more then 1 file at a time.

Code:
scp root@smallfry:/tmp/*.rpm /usr/rpm
that should grab every file that has the extention .rpm and copy it to your local box from the /tmp/ directory.
