Sorry I forgot to mention, I did a quick test with the

I'm not much of a ftp whiz,  but here is my log from
getting it via ftp.
ftp> get day36-240x135-mpeg4.mov
local: day36-240x135-mpeg4.mov remote:
227 Entering Passive Mode (209,202,240,80,156,158)
150 Opening BINARY mode data connection for
226 Transfer complete.  (6709839 bytes sent.)
6709839 bytes received in 61.4 secs (1.1e+02

As far as I read that it's using passive mode correct?

Thanks for the quick response btw.

p.s.  I'm also open to other ways of putting this
command together or even other programs.  The only
requirement is that it can login to a ftp server,
download the file and split it into tga's (I've also
tried with mencoder but the result was the same)
