Just tried to use mget to get all the files in a remote directory and it prompted me to accept each file with a y/n. This is because by default smbclient prompts to accept each file when using the mget command.
smb: \> cd PDFs smb: \PDFs\> mget * Get file 20100615135815.pdf? # to get out of this you have to CTRL + C and then re-login using smbclient
When in an mget session turn off prompting by entering prompt before running the mget command
smb: \> prompt smb: \> cd PDFs smb: \PDFs\> mget * getting file \PDFs\20100615135815.pdf of size 68489 as 20100615135815.pdf (412.9 kb/s) (average 412.9 kb/s)
