Obtaining files by anonymous ftp

Type:
% ftp 138.67.12.4 -- 138.67.12.4 is our ftp site
username: anonymous -- your username is ``anonymous''
password: yourname@your.machine.name -- type anything here
ftp$>$ -- this is the prompt you see
when you are in ftp

You are now logged in via ftp to the CWP anonymous ftp site. You may type:

ftp$>$ ls -- to see the contents of the directories
ftp$>$ cd dirname -- to change directories to ``dirname''
ftp$>$ binary -- to set ``binary mode'' for transferring files
You must do this before you try to transfer any
binary file. This includes all files with the form
some_name.tar.Z extension.
ftp$>$ get filename -- to transfer ``filename'' from our site to your machine
ftp$>$ mget pattern* -- to transfer all files with names of the ``pattern*''
For example:
ftp$>$ mget *.tar.Z -- will transfer all files with the form of name.tar.Z
to your machine. You will be asked whether you
really want each file of this name pattern transferred,
before ftp actually does it.
ftp$>$ bye -- to exit from ftp
