right, open it, connect to the ftp site, choose file and download it, it will take care of the details for you

I'm trying to use gFTP also, however my issue is that when i try to download something i have to select the actual files manually. Is it possible to be able to grab a directory from the remote window, drag it the the local folder and then it adds all the files that are in any directories inside that folder??? As when i drag and drop it only seems to make a directory and i have to then go into the folder and do all the files manually?? I've looked around in the options but am unable to find anything about it??


Help me please
