Question Arguments too long????

I'm trying to tranfer files via ftp form UNIX to Linux and vice versa.

When I tried mget command I received this message: "arguments too long".

What should I do to transfer multiple files??????

1.) Transfer each file, on file-by-file basis
2.) Transfer files in batches (mget 1* 2* 3*)

which will turn off the interactive prompting i.e. do this y/n?
