FTP download multiple files AsyncPro

I don't use FTP often, but I want to download multiple files from a
stringlist. I have a loop to iterate through the stringlist, so first file
starts to transfer OK (puts the name in the local folder with no content),
but the FTPStatus and FTPReply events don't fire, so remaining files don't
transfer. InProgress remains true, so subsequent Receive commands raise an

The loopy part:
if APFTP1.retrieve(RemoteFile, LocalFile, rmReplace) then //
starts OK. . .
while APFTP1.InProgress do begin // hangs here

Exit; // the rest of the files generate an exception

I know there's a simple answer, but I'm not seeing it.

1. FTP Transfer hangs and does not compete the file - or permit multiple file downloads

2. FTP - Multiple file downloads

I have written ftp code which will download a single file from the
Server using the below code:

require 'rubygems'
require 'net/ftp'
require 'fileutils'

URL = 'IP address'
username = 'test'
passwd = "test"
filename = "file1"
directory = '/home/test/'
localfile = 'C:\\Documents and Settings\\User1\\Desktop\\file1'

But what i am really looking for is:
1) Download multiple files from a given directory.
2) Download files by giving wild characters (eg: *.xls or *.txt)

Please let me know if there is a better way or easier way to achieve
these tasks.
