You could specify the path on the FTP server after hostname part in the original command of curlftpfs. For example, you could have your command as, curlftpfs user_name:password@hostname:/var/www/public_html ~/mnt/sitename References http://askubuntu.com/a/323215 http://askubuntu.com/a/200812

The NOAA in this case has an FTP and an HTTP resource for this, so what I wrote a script that does the following: ncftpls to get a list of files sed to complete the filepaths to a full list of http files aria2c to quickly download them all Example script: # generate file list ncftpls ...

Yes, you are correct. Unfortunately while the ftp specs offer an alternate transfer mode that is capable of piplining multiple files over a single data connection, the last time I did a survey of available software ( which admittedly was back in 1998 ), none supported it.
