LFTP , mget question

Hey Guys , I have a ftp server that I would like to replicate as a backup. there are about 30 files in the root folder, as well as 10 sub folders.

When I connect with lftp, do a 'mget *' it only copies the 30 files, and not the 10 sub-folders and their contents.

Anyone have an idea how I can get all my files in one command?
Thanks much

Read the man page for lftp. Look for the section about ftpcopy. It's obsolete, but it gives you some examples using get and mget. Also check into rsync as an alternative.
