When doing ftp make it a bad habit to do
The reason being is that some servers will support the mget
/mypathname/*.* and others won't.
I've seen this work
However, notice the path name missing? So when you do a mget
/mypathname/*.* you may get
would you like to get thisfile.txt? y
no such file
The native ftp server for IBM i supports mget /directory/*.*. Linoma's
GoAnywhere does not. They have filed an enhancement request and they've
been pretty responsive in the past. However they do state that the RFC is
a little vague on whether or not the list should return the path name.
There is some concern about backward compatibility...
They did some checking around and they are seeing a mix of ftp sites that
go either way.
