sftp, ftp mget get
i installed vsftpd on my machine running ubuntu 11.04 and i try access on a variety of different computers including my laptop with ubuntu 11.04 on it. Well i downloaded my music folder from the server using mget and using a wild card *.mp3, but when i try to use get to download a single file and i type the files name in or copy and paste the files name in i get the error 550 failed to open file. I try using the passive command but i dont think my firewall is the problem considering i can use mget. I am running this on a lan. so can anyone explain to me how to fix this is it would be much appreciated.

Do the file names have spaces in them by chance?
If so, try either escaping them, .e.g:
ftp> get 02\ -\ Clap.mp3
ftp> get "02 - Clap.mp3"
