How to FTP Local File(s) to a Remote Server

You will be asked for login/password information following the first step unless anonymous.

#ftp esofthub.com
ftp>cd /tmp/TEMP (on remote workstation)
ftp>bin
ftp>lcd /tmp/MYLOCAL (on local workstation)
ftp>!ls (on local--file named filename)
ftp>put filename (puts filename into remote's directory, /tmp/TEMP)
ftp>quit

Use mput (multiple files) instead of put if you want to FTP everything from the local directory into the remote directory
