wget assistance to manage parent directories...

looking for a wget option that does not retrieve entire path from source box...

currently working with the following syntax:
wget --no-verbose --mirror --no-parent --no-host-directories --page-requisites --ftp-user=mis --ftp-password=secret  ftp://192.x.x.x/tmp/test

is anyone familiar with the syntax needed to recursively retrieve the directory test, without /tmp ?

thanks in advance,

--cut-dirs=2 was all that was needed Smilie

happy thursday,
