C:\>ftp ipx
Connected to ipx
220 ipx FTP server (SunOs 5.6) ready
User (ipx: (none)) : <username>
331 password required for <username>.
password: <password>
230 user <username> logged in
ftp>?
---this will show you the available ftp commands
ftp>get <filename>
--this will copy <filename> from the current directory on the remote host to the current directory on the PC
ftp>put <filename>
