get files from multiple directories using FTP

I need to download multiple files in multiple directores from other Unix server. The files could have been created by differnet user. I can use root account but I want the preserve the owner and time of the remote file. Need help on how I can do this using FTP.

# 2  
1. Using FTP, before downloading, usr dir or ls to get the owner, group and attributes of the file, then set them after download.

2. Use SSH and invoke tar & gzip on the far side, ungzip and untar on the client side with the option to maintain owner, group and attributes.

Yeah - option #2 is the easiest if SSH is already established. Smilie
