I'm trying to download a folder using wget on the Terminal (I'm usin a Mac if that matters) because my ftp client sucks and keeps timing out. It doesn't stay connected for long. So I was wondering if I could use wget to connect via ftp protocol to the server to download the directory in question. I have searched around in the internet for this and have attempted to write the command but it keeps failing. So assuming the following:
ftp username is: firstname.lastname@example.org ftp host is: ftp.s12345.gridserver.com ftp password is: somepassword
I have tried to write the command in the following ways:
wget -r ftp://email@example.com:firstname.lastname@example.org/path/to/desired/folder/ wget -r ftp://serveradmin:email@example.com/path/to/desired/folder/
When I try the first way I get this error:
Bad port number.
When I try the second way I get a little further but I get this error:
Resolving s12345.gridserver.com... 188.8.131.52 Connecting to s12345.gridserver.com|184.108.40.206|:21... connected. Logging in as serveradmin ... Login incorrect.
What could I be doing wrong?
