How do i get an entire directory through FTP? Is it possible.

I mean i'm in a directory called 'root' from here i need to get the contents of another directory say 'root10' through FTP command. I used mget directory name but it doesnt work.

Thanks in advance

1. If u r using on command prompt then first u hv to mkdir root10 then u can use mget *.*

2. If u r using FTP GUI client then u just need to right click on folder and click on download.
It creates a dir & gets all files in thar directory.

Just to add.

You may need to do teh following at logon.

ftp -i servername

Instead of ftp server name or ftp --> open -->servername

This is to ensure that you download all files automatically in that directory using (mget * as indicated by Nitin) and you do not have to confirm each file. It will download all files automatically.
