FreeBSD ftp problem downloading folders

I would like to copy files from windows to FreeBSD box using ftp client. Unfortunately I can only download the files but not the folders with "mget" command.
can someone let me know if it's possible to download all the files and folders using ftp client?


thanks in advance.

Try without the trailing / - although i've just tested it and it works fine with me;


ncftp /pub/linux/kernel > get -R v1.0/
tar: This does not look like a tar archive
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

Try to use the ftp client "ncftp" rather than the relatively basic "ftp" client.

I tried mget *.*    and getting this: get *.*: server said: File not exists
it's only download files but not folder, please advice.
