ncftp is another solution
i got another solution for this by the help of "ncftpget" command.
But i had tried to do that, then i got a message that the command is not in that...
i think the necessarry package is not installed.. i don't know which is the package that i want to be installed..

if anyone knows.. please send..

Hem ... From


The LibNcFTP library is not free software
And also, ncftpget won't put a file on a server : it is designed to RETRIEVE data ...

Why don't you use ftp (man ftp will tell you a lot of things) ?
