Just reading what you wrote, you are supposed to put a : between username and password â i.e. myuser:mypass .. I donât use gftp myself anymore, I prefer filezilla ..
First, how exactly do I specify a command to pull down a directory over ftp and specify a username and password? I've looked through the man pages and specified it how I though I was suppose to plus a few variations of but had no luck
man page indicate:gftp [options] [[proto://][ user : [pass] @] site [: port ][/ directory]]
I test with
#gftp ftp://ftp.freebsd.org ftp username pass@ ftp.freebsd.org 21 /
but have no success
gftp open and ask for username and password
