trying to wget http://vault.centos.org/5.2/os/i386/CentOS/


Hello,

am trying to download all the rpm packages from the link, http://vault.centos.org/5.2/os/i386/CentOS/ via wget.

But im getting error: "transfer failed, unknown or unexpected error",

the command i ran is, wget http://vault.centos.org/5.2/os/i386/CentOS/

then tried, wget http://vault.centos.org/5.2/os/i386/CentOS/$file

But no results, it just download the index.html file.

My question then is, how to download multiple files on a webpage via wget?

any help appreciated.

Thanks.

check the -r option for wget to get a recursive download.
