How to Download with WGET a file directly into private FTP



for unexpected reasons maybe 1 day will be the day that you well need to connect to a ftp into a unix shell and download a file and sadly you don’t have the graphical shell running

One quick way to download that file of your ftp server is to bind user and password & copy / paste into your Putty connection

( maybe the security guy from your network will kill you , but sometimes shit happens )

so … in this case I’ve used WGET to restore a backup that i have hosted into a FTP server

wget 13_12_05-Clipboard

this will place directly the file into your working directory
