FTP connection
 
Hello,
I want to download files from a remote directory from a ftp server. The directory contains multiple files. I want to download all the files in that directory. For this purpose I used the following command
ftp>mget *
but in that case it prompts for every file that is to be downloaded. I just want to off that prompting option, it'll prompt only once.

please some one help me....

Give "prompt off" before the mget command.

to stop prompt use
Code:

prom
and also if you are downloading any executable files make sure that you have given the
Code:

bi
command first other wise executable files are downloaded as normal text files.
