Question Get Directories with Command Line FTP?


I am trying to transfer several directories with command line FTP between 2 servers.

mget *.* works to get all the files, but mget * wont work to get everything including the directories...

Can it even be done?

No, it can't - not with the normal ftp command,
anyway ... you could look at ncftp or just use
scp (safer). I'm sure other ftp clients are capable
of doing it, too. :)

Cheers,
Tink
