I run into a problem I can not solve. I need to fetch a whole directory
tree from a public remote site. The top level directory and its
subdirectories are accessible via ftp:// and http:// so I tried fetch,
but fetch does only retrieve data on file basis and does not copy a
whole directory tree recursively. The remote site does not offer
sftp/sshd for that purpose.
Is there a simple way to perform such a task with FreeBSD's own tools (I
try to avoid installing 'wget' and sibblings)? I need to keep it simple,
task should be performed via cronjob.
Please eMail me.
Thanks in advance,
