Repetitive loop during FTP download

Had the same problem when downloading 5.1.
It gets to the
and then keeps repeating the usr directory like so:
I am using an FTP client in windows (cuteftp and Windows NT)
Do I have to use dos and plain old ftp and mget?
Also, most of the redhat mirror sites won't let me in
because they try and reverse DNS my computer.
Neither my work or home computers have DNS entries since
they are not web servers, mail servers or anything similar.
Why is this required when it is not very common for standard
internet connected computers to have DNS entries?
This made it extremely difficult to find an FTP site that
would let me in.
this must be a problem with cuteftp, it has nothing to do with Red Hat
