Do you know the content of the directory, or the content is it subject to change?

You'll need an application that recurse the directory and write an txt files which contain the ftp command.

Here the vb application that generate the batch files.

Run UPLOAD.BAT

Change the parameter for your settings.

You may need to change a bit as per your need.

Option Explicit
Dim sFich() As String
Dim iNbFich As Long
Dim iNbDir As Long
Const servername = "1.1.1.1"
Const username = "username"
Const password = "password"

Private Sub main()
searchFile "d:\projets"
Dim i As Long

Open "c:\ftpup\upload.bat" For Output As #1
For i = 1 To iNbDir
Print #1, "call ftp" & i & ".bat"
Next i
Close #1

End Sub


Public Sub searchFile(sHomeDir As String)
Dim sTempFich As String

Dim iNbRep As Integer         ' Le nombre de repertoire dans le repertoire courrant
Dim sRep() As String          ' Le array des repertoires dans le rep courrant
Dim i As Integer

' Stock (variable globale) les fichiers trouves dans le rep courrant
sTempFich = Dir(sHomeDir + "\*.*")
iNbDir = iNbDir + 1

Open "c:\ftpup\ftp" & CStr(iNbDir) & ".bat" For Output As #1
Print #1, Left(sHomeDir, 2)
Print #1, "cd" & Right(sHomeDir, Len(sHomeDir) - 2)
Print #1, "ftp " & servername & " -s:c:\ftpup\dir" & iNbDir
Close #1

Open "c:\ftpup\dir" & CStr(iNbDir) For Output As #1

Print #1, username
Print #1, password
Print #1, "other ftp command ... "
Print #1, "cd" & Right(sHomeDir, Len(sHomeDir) - 2)

While sTempFich <> ""
    If sTempFich <> "." And sTempFich <> ".." Then
        If GetAttr(sHomeDir + "\" + sTempFich) <> vbDirectory Then
            Print #1, "put " & sTempFich
        End If
    End If

    sTempFich = Dir
Wend

Close #1

' stock (variable locale) tous les repertoires dans le rep courant
sTempFich = Dir(sHomeDir + "\*.*", vbDirectory)
While sTempFich <> ""
    If sTempFich <> "." And sTempFich <> ".." Then
        If GetAttr(sHomeDir + "\" + sTempFich) = vbDirectory Then
            iNbRep = iNbRep + 1
            ReDim Preserve sRep(iNbRep - 1)
            sRep(iNbRep - 1) = sHomeDir + "\" + sTempFich
        End If
    End If
 
    sTempFich = Dir
Wend

' cherche dans tous les repertoires trouves
For i = 0 To iNbRep - 1
    searchFile sRep(i)
Next i
End Sub
