Recursive copying of ftp directories

Ncftp

When you want to do extensively recursive copying from ftp-servers I suggest you give NCFTP a try. It´s a commandline tool, available for almost every platform and does a great job, because it copies symbolic links as well. Moreover it is programmable (via the LibNcFTP API), and comes with two prewritten scripts which will do recursive uploads and downloads (ncftpput and ncftpget).
