How to FTP without knowing the file name

Using the mget nbor command on the AS/400 when FTPing from a PC will get all the file names starting with gbor to the current library.

How can I FTP from PC to AS400 when not all the file names are known to me? My example is:

Get nborXXXX mylib/myfile

Easiest way is to use the mget command:

mget nbor*

This will get all files starting with GBOR to the current library. The file name on the AS/400 will be the same as it is on the PC.
