I have a dialup shell account. I am useing a standard term
program on an Amiga 2000 to dial up and download files from
the web. The problem is that the files are put on the Unix
harddrive. I need to get those files to my harddrive in
order to use them. All the commands i use, don't seem to work.

Thats the problem is that i am in ftp, (i.e. i ftp to my home directory and it is the ftp commands that are not working
I guess i did not make my question clear enough.
I think i am concidered as  dumb terminal to the unix and not a host.
please have someone else look into this problem.

If you are really stuck and the files you require are both relatively small and ASCII printable characters a simple but primitive technique is to use the terminal emulators spooling / logging options.  Set this option on and then "cat <filename>" within the unix session. when the "cat" is complete terminate the logging/spooling and use the captured file as desired.  This isn't the neatest way but it might provide a workaround.  I'm with rbr that ftp is the most common technique to achieve this.
