Re: [vox-tech] recursive ftp

I think you can do it with ncftp and some scripting.  Normally, you can
use ncftp like a normal ftp, but you can also pass a recursive option (ie:
`mget -r *`).  You can write a script and pass appropriate commands, kind
of like this:

   ncftp -u <username> <ftp.servername.serverdomain> <<EOF
   mget -r /

Of course, you'll need ncftp installed, and make the script file
executable.  Be careful about your password being in the open.
