trouble sending file to ftp site

I'm having trouble with this ftp code, the files are not there.  Please help...
My login is anonymous and password must contain a valid email address

Send to: ftp://ftvmu1/VVG/jax/FTL
My file location is on a share directory: K:\\ftlgg01\dept\ftl\"PRogram1"

In the same location, I have a .scr (lextract.scr) file that contains the following:
ftvmu1
anonymous
bob.cat@cars.com
cd VVG/jax/FTL
put K:\\ftlgg01\dept\ftl\"PRogram1"

In the same location, I have a .bat (fromshell.bat) file that contains the following:
ftp -s:c:\lextract.scr

I schedule a task to run the .bat file or just manually execute the file.

           That ftp address looks incorrect. Have you ever made successfull connection or copy to that specified address?

       If you map this ftp address as a drive to your computer, your script will work better/with minimum fault.

Its possible to configure a machine to map to a FTP server as a drive (for instance the Microsoft site) providing the machine runs both NetBEUI and TCP/IP. Perform the following:

Example below is for microsoft.com. You would change the values with yours and map the drive for your ftp.

Perform a NSLOOKUP for the FTP site, e.g.
nslookup ftp.microsoft.com
make a note of the IP address
Edit the LMHOSTS file (in %systemroot%\system32\drivers\etc)
Add line
<ip address> MicrosoftFTP #PRE
e.g. 207.46.133.140 MicrosoftFTP #PRE
Save the file
Open a CMD.EXE session. Enter command:
nbtstat -R
This purges and reloads the name table cache
Type command:
net view \\MicrosoftFTP
You should see information on the site
Now map a drive (to share data)
net use * \\MicrosoftFTP\data /user:anonymous
All done. It will pass a drive letter for the connection

i added this line in the lmhosts, i just put it where the other <ip> #PRE commands were.
I saved the file
I type net view \\MicrosoftFTP and got an error msg:
System error 53 has occurred
The network path was not found.

When i did the ip lookup i also got the server name...

       Don't use Microsoft. It is just an example. Change them with your own settings.
