login to the linux box as root
cd to the directory you want to put stuff in

ftp to the novell box - as anon or whatever
mget *

this should bring all files down...mget -R is for recursive, and the command 'prompt' will toggle the interactive off and on (ie. the need to confirm each get)

thank you for the response. How do I manage rights on teh linux box for the ftp access. I would like to be able to upload as well. I created a user on teh linux box, logged in as the user. but it will not let me create or put anything in it as ftp. This user is the root group. I need to know how to do this, so I can give and take rights from ftp users. Also how do i limit what anonomous sees. Thank you

well, I use vsftpd as my ftp server...in the config file for that (/etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf) there's an option called 'write_enable' which can be turned off or on - this controls whether ppl can upload or not. Also, the user they're ftping in as needs to have write access to the folder on the target server.

if you configure 'local' logins (ie. real user accounts) then they are controlled by the ftp config (ex uploads enabled or not) but then also by the file system permissions on the ftp server. They'll need to have read and write permission to the directory on the ftp server.

if you login as anonymous, then everyone has the same permission...the files are either readable or not. The 'anonymous' is a real user...for vsftpd it's a user called 'ftp', so the rights of the 'ftp' user are the rights of anonymous.

before I did that bonehead this, I could got to ftp://ipaddress of server, and it would take me in with anonomous access, now when I do this, it asks for a password. I created a new ftp user, and put him the th eftp group, but how do I get it not to ask me for a password again?
