mget * (obtein files from current directory but not the files form sub-directories)

Hello,

Using the instruction mget (within ftp) and with "Interactive mode off", I want to get all files from directory (DirAA), but not the files in sub-directories.

The files names don't follow any defined rule, so they can be just letters without (.) period

Directory structure example:
$ find DirAA -name "*"
DirAA
DirAA/FILE_AA_01
DirAA/FILE_AA_02
DirAA/DirBB
DirAA/DirBB/FILE_BB_01

ftp> mget *
local: DirBB/FILE_BB_01 remote: DirBB/FILE_BB_01
DirBB/FILE_BB_01: No such file or directory


With the instruction "mget *" the (* asterisk) is expanded also for the files on the sub-directories. The files from the sub-directories are not copied, but will originate errors on the log.

So anyone knows if with “mget *” there is a way to get only the files on the current directory, not the files on the sub-directories?

ftpd_selinux(8) 					 ftpd SELinux policy documentation					   ftpd_selinux(8)

NAME
ftpd_selinux - Security-Enhanced Linux policy for ftp daemons. DESCRIPTION
Security-Enhanced Linux provides security for ftp daemons via flexible mandatory access control. FILE_CONTEXTS SELinux requires files to have a file type. File types may be specified with semanage and are restored with restorecon. Policy governs the access that daemons have to files. Allow ftp servers to read the /var/ftp directory by adding the public_content_t file type to the directory and by restoring the file type. semanage fcontext -a -t public_content_t "/var/ftp(/.*)?" restorecon -F -R -v /var/ftp Allow ftp servers to read and write /var/tmp/incoming by adding the public_content_rw_t type to the directory and by restoring the file type. This also requires the allow_ftpd_anon_write boolean to be set. semanage fcontext -a -t public_content_rw_t "/var/ftp/incoming(/.*)?" restorecon -F -R -v /var/ftp/incoming BOOLEANS
SELinux policy is based on least privilege required and may also be customizable by setting a boolean with setsebool. Allow ftp servers to read and write files with the public_content_rw_t file type. setsebool -P allow_ftpd_anon_write on Allow ftp servers to read or write files in the user home directories. setsebool -P ftp_home_dir on Allow ftp servers to read or write all files on the system. setsebool -P allow_ftpd_full_access on Allow ftp servers to use cifs for public file transfer services. setsebool -P allow_ftpd_use_cifs on Allow ftp servers to use nfs for public file transfer services. setsebool -P allow_ftpd_use_nfs on system-config-selinux is a GUI tool available to customize SELinux policy settings.
