Firstly, are you trying to download /www as in  /home/username/www  or 
%root%/www ?

Most ftp servers will not allow 'root' to login, so i hope you are not 
trying %root%/www, unless  'user' has  /www as their login dir, if www is 
a directoy within your remote login, do *not* include the preceding / , so 
/www is really just www

ncftpget -T -R -v -u user -p pwd /home/tmp www

Do you have write permissions for /home/tmp on your local machine

Doesn't need it.
