I haven't every used the program, but couldn't you tarball it, send it, and then untar it?

Sorry if I am way off it left field, like I said I haven't ever used this prog, and I am not familiar with "sending" folders to FTP sites.

Ahh, I see. Try using a 'cp -a /directory' to the host machine. Is that any better, or still totally wrong?

Also, you may want to try out a GUI ftp client, like gftp and such. Just an idea.
