Hi all

I am dealing with a site that has hundreds of folders
each folder contains 1 or 2 html files and a dozen or so images

All i want to do is download the html files (and the structure of course), but i can't seem to find an ftp client that allows me to do this

it would be nice if the ftp client also kept the connection alive for an extended period, and synchronised the folders and free is always good

If you have any suggestions I would appreciate hearing them

Even the most basic FTP clients (i.e. command-line clients) allow you to use patterns.

e.g. "get *.html"

I'd be surprised if very many GUI packages don't support this in some form. I think you just need to look at the docs a little more carefully.

Ok i have downloaded FlashXP following recommendations in the other ftp thread and the filtering seems to be working fine

Just can't figure out how to synch the directories as the help file doesn't like vista
