Ftp


When a program is given away uncompressed with multiple files, where all these files are in one location. is there an easy way to download them all at once? I'm manually downloading them one by one.

Thanks in advance!

mget *
if you want to stick with pure ftp. Graphical clients and Midning Commander have no problems with copying many files.

if its very many files I just use wget to download the whole directory. you could download the whole ftp site if it could fit on your hard drive.

I'm pretty sure that you need to type "prompt" before you can use the "mget" functionality of FTP.
But that's deffinately the easiest way to do it.
