I would like to download a large file(s) from a web server given x.x.x.x:80

Usually wget and/or curl would suffice but I do not have a directory/to/file.zip to download, all I have is an IP.

Any thoughts?


If you do not have the name of the file, you can only access whatever is visible at that IP address and port. If there is a webpage with links & dependencies, wget can do a recursive get on anything linked. If you're trying to access something not made visible, you must know the file name. It's a server-side restriction.
