using operating system command to access ftp server and transfer a file


we have a vendor who is not giving us cd permission on their ftp server. And since file adapter( using ftp protocol) makes a cd while making connection to the ftp server. Our communication channel fails because of authorization issue. Is theer any way to get around this situation.

It seems OS command option might be an option to access ftp server using a shell script. Does any one has done this before. I would appreciate if you can let me know the details of connection and shell script. It's a file to file scenario. A file from NFS mount direcory in ERP has to transferred to vendor's ftp server via XI. Vendor has given us permission to place a file but no cd authorization..
