    transfering files via ftp


    My windows machine died and I have put the hard drive into an ancient machine running fedora core 2 (I can only use the command line because I don't have a mouse).

    I am trying to ftp the files from the linux box to my mac (osX 10.3.5) I have managed to get the hard drive mounted on the linux box (they are both formated as ntfs) but can't get the files to send over ftp.

    I am using the mput command to upload them to my mac but I can't send files with spaces in them, it is a 120gig drive and has a *lot* of files on it so renaming every single one would take years.

    Is there anyway to send all the files over quickly or am I going to have to rename all the files? using mput /mnt/windows/"*" doesn't work, it just reverts the file names back to spaces.

    Check out ncftp. There you can just "put /home/user/mp3/*" etc..

    any chance of compressing the files before you put them ?

    tar-compress / zip ?
