    mput/mget are for multiple file transfers, though you still have to say "y" to every file. I don't think that you can transfer without confirming each file.

    i think the better way is to compress the folder's i want to send so the ftp system recognises them as files.in such way i can send them easily.
    thanks!

    i tried put -r (or -R) and i get :usage: put local-file [remote-file]
    i think that pure-ftpd does not have such command.although thanks for the help..

    try the multiple file post command with a -y flag, some programs use this flag to automaticaly respond 'y' to any questions asked....

    sounds cool out of curitosity, are you just uploading all this to an ftp, or is the ftp acting as an intermediary? it might just be easier to kermit the files over or something (i know its oldschool, but still effective)
