Generically send a text file from the IFS via FTP

When using mget or get on iSeries, it should work. However, one user received an error message when trying to do this.

When I specifically name a file from the IFS by FTP, I am successful in moving a text file to a shared drive. If I mget *.* or get *.txt it will not pick up the file. I want to send variable name files. How do I generically send the files?
Please provide the error message received when you download by generic name, it should work, and it is very widely used.

For example:

Cd    /As400Dir

Lcd c:localdir



Mget *.txt
