wget -r ftp://address

for recursive wget

Bob Bib (bobbib) said : #2

"wget -r" makes no different result, except an additional string appears: "Removed `site.net/.listing'."

From the wget help:
-m, --mirror shortcut for -N -r -l inf --no-remove-listing.

It also fails to download the files with original wget 1.13.4 built from source.

By the way, lftp mirror function seem to work.
