Your problem is, Windows and the likes don't recognize the symlinks, and
when you try to download one, it will be converted to...a folder?!?
(weird, but true). To get over it, you can ask the ftp server to archive
and/or compress the directory/ies you want to d/l, i.e, instead of
get <remotepath/file> <localpath/file>
you can issue
get <remotepath/file.tar> <localpath/file.tar>
and the server will tar the files and directories before sending them,
thus preserving all files in their original format. However, not all
servers support this feature, so it might not work: try another server
then. I'm not familiar with this cuteftp, if it doesn't let you enter
commands, maybe you'll be better off with the DOS command-line ftp.exe
