Sorry, I don't understand your question. Do you want to use a ftp server with netscap? Then you can write ftp://xxxx.yyyy.xxx/ at the place of location. Or do you want anything else?

It can be done if you telnet to the webserver and specify the port 80 (you need a UNIX machine or a telnet program that lets you specify the port you want to use), after that you can type http commands (do you understand this? you have to learn the http protocol´s commands!).

  Now, that does not mean you can copy wahtever you want, if the server does not allow reading of certain files you can´t copy them, does not matter if you use lynx or you do it manually.

   Why do you want to do this? The web browser is a much better way to get the files you need.
