If you start ncftp and type "help open" you'll get a full description of the command and it's options. You can change the port with "open -P nn sitename" where nn is the port number.

God, I have been looking for that option forever..  tried the man pages -nothign, tried the website -nothing, you think they could have put it in at least one of those places.  Well thanks for the answer!!!!!  I had tried -p and then just specifing it...  grr..  had to default to the ftp program b/c of that.

For what it's worth... A number of the ncftp commands have more info in "help cmd" than in the man page...

Well I have used mine. Nifty thought, but I suspect that it'll notice a referral to within EE.
