Help me delete a few hundred thousand files from a webserver

Let's say I have 300,000 files on a webserver in a single directory. I want to download them to a local directory and then delete them. My FTP client of choice is choking on the task. What should I do?

I need to serve some example files to my (programming) students. My old host gave me a public FTP site, but I just switched to dreamhost, and no longer have this option. I'm looking for a simple solution. [more inside]

bypassing blocked ftp

I'm at the library, connected to the internet using the library's wifi service. I'm trying to download a driver file, which is only available from the manufacturer via an ftp link. The library blocks ftp (at least via port 21 and the manu's ftp server doesn't respond on other ports). How do I download the file?

How do you backup your website via FTP automatically?

Is there any FTP software that will compare the files on the server to the ones stored locally, and only download new or updated / changed files? (I'd prefer a program that does this as opposed to some sort of script or other hackery) [more inside]
