I usually use a little command line tool, you can even install it in your compiled script (assuming you have the right to do so)

One little one is FTPPUT

http://www.unixwiz.net/tools/ftpput.html

Sample code....

RunWait('ftpput.exe -u' & $name & ' -p' & $pass & ' ' & $server & ' "/htdocs/Directory" file.html',"",@SW_HIDE)

Check the web/google for DOS' FTP commands if you need some HowTo's.

btw: you can create a FTP login script/file which can be called/executed via a standard parameter.

But initialy I would check FTP's command reference

Type ftp ? (or ftp help) at the command line. Voila!

My mistake. :">

1) type "ftp" ; the prompt will change to FTP>

2) type "?" ; to see its commands

Here's some additional info

Microsoft Windows FTP

One of the nice things about Microsoft's FTP is that it is free and usually installed when you install your network software. It has an UNIX FTP look and feel to it in as much as it is text based and command driven. To bring up FTP, go to the File:Run or Start:Run command, or to the MS DOS Prompt and enter ftp.  Some of the commands once you are there are:  

ascii, set transfer type to ascii binary

bi, set transfer type to binary

bye, quit quit FTP

cd, change host directory

dir, ls display host directory

get, get a file from the host

hash, show hash mark for each 2k transfered

help, FTP help

lcd, change local directory

mget, get wildcard files from host

mput, put wildcard files to host

open, open host connection

put, put file on host

pwd, show current working directory

user, log in to host  

Once ftp is up, you would do an "open <hostname>" after which you should get a connect message and then you will be asked for a log in and password. Most sites accept ftp as a login and then your e-mail address as the password (anonymous ftp). Other sites may require you have a valid login assigned by them first.

This will log you into to the username's home directory. From there, you would then do an "lcd", a "get <filename>", a "put <filename>" or whichever actions are needed.

FTP can also be started by first providing the site name as part of the command line, i.e.

       ftp ftp.hiddensoft.com

Now to carry this one step forward, the whole process can be automated from a command line and a batch file. The command lines options are:

FTP [-h] [-v] [-d] [-i] [-n] [-g] [-s:filename] [host]

  -h            Display help screen

  -v            Suppresses display of remote server responses.

  -n            Suppresses auto-login upon initial connection.

  -i            Turns off interactive prompting during multiple file transfers.

  -d            Enables debugging.

  -g            Disables filename globbing (see GLOB command).

  -s:filename  Specifies a text file containing FTP commands;

           the commands will automatically run after FTP starts.

  host        Specifies the host name or IP address of the remote host to connect to.

The -s:filename option can automate a file transfer for you. Each normal response you would type in can be included from a batch file. A batch file to automate the upload of a file over the Internet might look like this:

open ftp.host.com

loginname

password

ascii

put file.txt

close

This opens an ftp connection to ftp.host.com, logs in as loginname and password, sets file type to ascii, and puts a file

Downloader was just a goodie to complete the picture.

As your inital request was about the upload of files you should check --> upload.exe :)

File Uploader - Version 1.04 (build 12.3)
Uploads one or more files to a WWW or FTP server.
Copyright (c) 2002-2004, Noel Danjou <webmaster@noeld.com>.

Syntax:

  upload <[path\]file.ext> <url> [<login>] [<password>]
          [/passive][/validate][/post][/proxy][/delete][/quiet]

Where:

  [path\]file.ext     name of the local file to upload (wildcards allowed)
  url                     destination url and optionally destination file name
                           (do not specify the file name if you use wildcards.)
  login and password  [optional] authentication on the server

Optional flags:
  /passive            Uses passive FTP semantics
  /validate           Checks the path and creates missing folders on the server
                      (FTP only)
  /post               Uses POST verb for HTTP instead of PUT (which is default)
  /proxy              Uses Internet Explorer proxy settings
  /delete             Deletes the target file before uploading
  /quiet              Runs the application silently (no display)
