    ftp options


    hey all, what is the proper command, if there is one, that will allow me using the command line ftp to send all files, directories and sub directories.

    so if I am on a box, sitting in www folder, I ftp to another box, and want to send everything in www and folders etc.. what would be the syntax for that?

    thanks again

    Interactive prompting can be toggled with the PROMPT command.
