Command "reput" in ftp?

I very like command ``reget'' in ftp. This command initiate transfer file restarting at end of local file. But I don't find command ``reput'' in ftp which may initiate transfer file to remote machine restarting at end of remote file. After crash of transfer file to remote machine by whatever reason another command ``put filename'' starts transfer file at begining of local file (not remote) wiping all previosly transferred bytes :( . So I must start transferring at most beginning again and again after any crash. I must put file to remote machine quite frequently and this channel is crashable. So this problem is critical to me. Does anyone know how I can solve this problem?

P.S. I use FreeBSD 2.1.0-RELEASE and standard /usr/bin/ftp .

Hello,
      Check restart option in ftp.
You may be interested in ncftp, I feel this is very fast with
lot of  user tunable parameters. You can solve problem of frequent disconnection by increasing the timeout period.
Please check ftp.cs.unl.edu site for your OS version of ncftp.

I found option restart after I sent my question. But I must at first
do "ls" to know file size that I already transferred. Other
solution is:
1) do "ftp localhost"
2) do "proxy open remotehost"
3) do "proxy get filename"
4) after crash do "proxy reget filename"
Both solutions are not so fine as "reput".
