How to get Files From a Remote Server

You will be asked for login/password information following the first step unless anonymous.

#ftp esofthub.com
ftp>cd /tmp/TEMP (on remote workstation)
ftp>bin
ftp>ls (on remote--file named filename)
ftp>lcd /tmp/MYLOCAL (on local workstation)
ftp>get filename (places filename into /tmp/MYLOCAL)
ftp>quit

Use mget (multiple files) instead of get if you want to FTP everything from the remote directory into the local directory
