Not sure, but I'd look at FTP Voyager at Rhinosoft.com first.

Instead of using:
get file.htm

use

mget *.html

You may also want to turn off the prompt before downloading files, type:

prompt

This works in standard linux/windows ftp.

Check the help for more info!

Well Mike, it looks like you are going to have to use a command-line ftp client to do what you want.

BTW - Lftp is a very nice command-line ftp client. There is a windows port of it here [google.com].
