Unable to download deep files and directories recursively with mget -R command...

Post by ANT.. » Sat, 19 Feb 2005 19:05:04



Hello.

I just installed and set up vsftpd v2.0.1 (apt-get) on my Debian v3.1
(Kernel v2.6.8) box. I seem to have problems using ncftp client (yes, I
am old school text user) in downloading a folder/directory with many
deep subfolders/subdirectories. I use mget -R foldername to download
everything in that folder as requested. It worked fine with wu-ftpd
server I had before, but needed to dump it.

What am I missing? I tried ncftp from both a PowerBook G4 (Mac OS X
10.2.8) and localhost of the Debian box. Both only got the files and
folders/directories in the root.

Thank you in advance. :)

Maybe you have no read permissions for the file.

I suggest switching to wget instead of mget.

Man wget.

Is it downloading the contents of test.tar?  There is something about this
in man ncftp.  Personally, I don't seem to be able to get any recursive
command to go deeper than one directory.  The man page doesn't specifically
say that you can go deeper; it just says that you can retrieve the
conttents of an entire directory with the -R switch.

I still like ncftp the best, and I am a KDE user.

I think test.tar is from ncftp or something for download compression.
wu-ftpd did this, but I don't know why vsftpd is having this problem?

I do not have this .tar file anywhere so it is a temporary file during
download.

It only downloaded the files and main subdirectories in the root
directory like shown in the debug log. You know what's weird, I had NO
problems with wu-ftpd. I am thinking it is on vsftpd side. I cannot
figure out where the option to tweak this. I do NOT see anything. :(

I agree. Text mode ftp client. :D

mget is a command in ncftp client, not a command in shell. I do not
want to use wget command.

Unable to download deep files and directories recursively with mget -R command...

Post by ANT.. » Mon, 21 Feb 2005 22:04:20


Finally, I fixed it and boy do I feel like an idiot. I don't know how in the
world I miss this line in /etc/vsftpd.conf file:

# You may activate the "-R" option to the builtin ls. This is disabled by
# default to avoid remote users being able to cause excessive I/O on large
# sites. However, some broken FTP clients such as "ncftp" and "mirror" assume
# the presence of the "-R" option, so there is a strong case for enabling it.
#ls_recurse_enable=YES

I removed # from #ls_recurse_enable=YES line, restarted vsftpd, and retried.
It works now (on localhost). I will try remotely later. I can't believe I
pondered on this for days. [sighs] :(

Thanks to everyone who tried to help. :)

I do not understand this, but it seems unimportant now as you said you have
solved your problem.

The fact remains that there is a test.tar on the server that you cannot
read, but it seems that you are blissfully unaware of it and it does not
concern you :^)

1. Unable to download directories & files recursively in ncftp?

I use ncftp and seem to have a problem downloading directories and files
via LAN:
drwx------   2 500      500          4096 Mar 29 18:37 Svenson & Gielen

ncftp /home/ant/download/p3 > mget -R "Svenson & Gielen"/                                                   Svenson & Gielen (TAR):                10240 bytes  224.45 kB/s

There are a bunch of MP3s in there so there's no way it can be 10,240
bytes. I seem to notice this happesn only if the directory has a space.
I tried "test" and I was able to download files and directories easily.
What am I doing wrong? Or is there a bug somewhere?

I am using the latest versions of ncftp and wu-ftpd (RPMs from red-carpet
and/or up2date) in Red Hat Linux 7.1 and 7.2.

Thank you in advance. :)
