FTP via VBS script

I have very basic knowledge of writing .vbs scripts.

I need a very basic script that will copy say all *.sql from a server to say c:\ftp on the PC it is been run on, i have no idea how to do this, but i need to do the following :

connect to the ftp server
with username & password
change into a certain directory say /etc/backup on the remote server
and then copy *.sql to c:\ftp
disconnect

Can someone please provide me with an example.  Im sure this will be a few lines of code, but it knowing what.

Many Thanks

You can do this in a batch file
in your batch file add
FTP -s:ftpscript.txt ftpserver  ' ftpserver is your ftp server

in ftpscript.txt or whatever you want to name it put

username
password
cd /etc/backup
binary
mget *.sql
