Suggestion for ftp like problem?
The problem is not an ftp problem but it is somehow similar, I try to explain it:
I have found a website, the name probably not important, it's like example.com. If I open the website from Opera Browser for example, I get an "Index of /" directory with several folders and files and I can navigate and download files. The problem is the high number of files so it's quite hard the download them by hand. I tried some ftp clients with the website as host, but the site requires a login and I couldn't get in. However from the browser I can access the site listing and all seems to be completely public. I also tried telnet access, but no luck.
Can you recommend a tool so I can download the site automatically (assuming that it's a kind of directory listing)?

Firefox has various plugins that will allow you to select a bunch of links and download them all. I think one of them is called DownThemAll.

I had no luck with DownThemAll, somehow it couldn't complete the website what I wanted. Thanks anyway. The solution I found is VisualWget with --recursive option checked.
