Hello There, I use Offline Explorer Enterprise Edition.

If I know the exact directory on a remote server,
can I let OE automatically download the whole directory with its conrents to my computer,
/regardless knowing what type of files are in there?

If Yes, please tell me how.

If I specify ie: "http://user:pass@www.somewebsite.members/contents/directoryx/subdirx/directoryIwanttodownload/"
It downloads nothing...

Unfortunately, most servers do not allow to list the files in a directory and download them all. So, if it doesn't work the way you tried, then it is impossible.

I don't quite understand. What do you mean by that?
Aren;t there other utilities that can do a *.* command or something?

No, there is no way at all. You can only start downloading the whole site (unlimited level and allow downloading from the starting server) to get all links to all possible files and load them.
