Hi. Is there a way to access Census data files (such as TIGER files) through an actual FTP interface? I'm trying to download all the files on this page (https://www2.census.gov/geo/tiger/TIGER2015/TRACT/), however, it not being an actual FTP interface, it requires manual clicking on each file to download. I know there used to be such an interface, but I can't find it.
I can't speak to the (non)existence of an FTP interface, but I have used several different tools for automating the tedious manual-clicking process. For Chrome, I use the Simple Mass Downloader extension. For Firefox, I've used DownThemAll extension. With either of these, you can use wildcards or regexp to download (say) all the zip files linked on a page.
In reply to Glenn Rice:
have you tried connecting to it with your FTP software to here:ftp://ftp.census.gov/geo/tiger/TIGER2015/TRACT/
...and then watch as your downloads status bar goes nuts.
