I have Ubuntu 13.04 server installed as a cloud server on Rackspace. I host most of my clients sites on Rackspace cloud sites.

I have tried to use the ftp app that comes with Ubuntu server to ftp into one of my cloud sites and download the files.

I want to do it this way as this particular client has uploaded gigabytes of photos and I just don't have the bandwidth to download and re upload that much data in a reasonable amount of time. The problem is I can't figure out how to download more than one file at a time with Ubuntu ftp through the command line. I also don't know how to download everything in a directory including any directories and their contents. I installed Master Commander and tried that but honestly I couldn't figure out how to even connect to the ftp server with mc.
