I have to download alot of file from a windows archive machine to a linux box. The windows ftp server has a two minute timeout so I have to do it manually. It would be great to write up a script for this.
casper@caspbox $ wget user
--2012-01-26 14:59:00-- ftp://user/pass@ftp://126.96.36.199

ncftpget connects and it downloads just the first
directory files. Like it does not migrate down to
casper directory - it just download everything from the first directory you get when you connect to the ftp server.
ncftpget -u username -p password -R ftp://172.18.41.61 C:\_MNTPT_VOL1\Archive\SAVE\casper\
