Bob's observations are right on target.  However, the Windows ftp
programs that I recommend on the BAMA site are "smart" enough to
download an entire folder if that is what you select.  I know that
WS_FTP is smart enough to distinguish between ascii and binary too.  The
others may be as well.  I'm not sure.

Netstat is implemented in DOS, but I'm not sure that it works very well.

Ping bama.sbc.edu should tell you whether the site is up or not.

I'm working on it folks.
