ftp question

I have a ftp server running at home.

while at work, I usually download some large file, then transfer it to my home computer.

is there a direct way to download it directly to my home computer?

If you have ssh access to your home server, you could wget <url-to-file> and let it in the background and then exit that session.

You can do that. I have read where it has been done. It is something like ftp:source:and path/to/file < space > destination:/path/to/where/it/goes.

That is what I recall at least. Maybe this bump will get someone who does this regularly.
