RE: [vox-tech] recursive ftp



The code I gave you was just an example.  Try using ncftp manually first,
write down what commands you actually type, and use that in the script.
The actual commands vary slightly from server to server.

(and the script wasn't tested - I don't have any servers I'm in need of
archiving.)
