mget (ftp command)

hey,

I was wondering if its possible to use a complete path and file name using the mget command example

mget /dir1/dir2/dir3/file.ext
or
get /dir1/dir2/dir3/file.ext

because whenever i try its says file not found or permission denied.....
but if i do
cd dir1
cd dir2
cd dir3
mget file.ext
it works well ....

Any ideas?

The root of the path is the home directory of the ftp service, if you are logging using anonymous FTP. Should work if you login as yourself or as a valid user, unless you do not have search permissions along the path.
