FTP Commands

Command Prompt Shortcut This adds an item named "Command Prompt Here" to the context menus of folders in Windows Explorer which, when selected, opens a command prompt window (cmd.exe) with the folder as the current directory. GREAT FOR MS-DOS FTP USERS!
This is a list of all available ftp commands that can be used for file transfers using the file transfer protocol

glob

Toggle filename expansion for mdelete, mget and mput. If globbing is turned off with glob, the file name arguments are taken literally and not expanded. Globbing for mput is done as in csh(1). For mdelete and mget, each remote file name is expanded separately on the remote machine and the lists are not merged. Expansion of a directory name is likely to be different from expansion of the name of an ordinary file: the exact result depends on the foreign operating system and ftp server, and can be previewed by doing `mls remote-files -' Note: mget and mput are not meant to transfer entire directo- ry subtrees of files. That can be done by transferring a tar(1) archive of the subtree (in binary mode).
