Brain-dead design

FTP on thousands of tiny files is incredibly slow because it's creating a new connection* for each one.  This seems very, very silly.

How should I be doing this?  Or is this really the best the internet can manage?

*Not a completely new connection, of course, but it goes into and out of file-transfer for each one, and I'm watching the commands scrolling up the screen endlessly, rather than it just uploading a 5MB block of "stuff" and a series of commands for what to do with it at the other end...
