Try this pattern

To get several files from a remote host:
   ftp> mget *.ps


This transfers a copy of each file with the fileneme extension .ps in the current directory on the remote host to the current directory on the local host.

Do you need complete script?

I'm unclear on what the *.ps is for.  Are you saying if my filename extension is .doc, then I could simply type "mget *.doc" ?

On a daily basis, our users will go out to this site, connect and need to bring down a couple files.  There is typically never more than a couple files in there.  This is on Windows.  Our issue is that the files are named by date each day and we don't want to have to change the script each day just so we can grab the file by filename.  I just want to grab all of them.

I'm told there are about 8-10 files out there, with varied file extensions.  So what I want is the command that pulls down every single file in the folder, regardless of file name extension.

Use

ftp> mget *.*

mget is command to pull multiple files in FTP script

Does that make sense?
