You can also use wget to retrieve the files from the ftp server. wget should be part of any major Linux distributions.

ncftpput is part of ncftp, which may not be installed automatically (or may not be part of your distribution at all).

Commented:
ncftp but its part of most distributions, and then how do you use wget to put files ?

You run wget from the machine that receives the files. If you need to put something on a ftp server, you need wput (which is a seperate project, and not part of most distributions).

>how do you use wget to put files ?

You could have the server "pull" them instead of the client "pushing" them. But you're right, this is probably less efficient.

The only reason to use this is security considerations. If the client is considered "unsafe", it's better to have the server get the file.

The question did not say which directions the files need to be moved. I just assumed that something on the server needs to be backed up. But you are right, it could be the other way as well.
