There's always the FTP client that came with your computer. For Windows or
Linux, just go into a command prompt, CD into the directory you want to
send files from, and type in "ftp hostname", where hostname is the name or
address of the server.
Once you're logged in, the first thing is to type "bin".
Then, the following commands will work for you:
cd - change directory on the server (/use/forward/slashes)
lcd - change your local directory
pwd - show the name of the server directory
ls - print a list of files in the server directory
put - send a file to the server
get - retreive a file from the server
bye - quit ftp and return to the command prompt
help - display a list of all valid commands
help command - display a few lines of help for that command
