ftp script

Hi,

I'm trying to make an ftp URL to connect to a ftp server using the ftp command on Mac OS.
The username I have is like this :
blablabla@blibli.com

So the command to connect is this one
blablabla@blibli.com:password@server.com

I'm can't get ftp to connect to the server in one command since it always assumes I want to connect to "@blibli.com" when I want to connect to "server.com"...

Anyone has an idea ?

Cheers

Terence

You might consider using a shell script, something like what is described on this site:

isn't there a syntax type that could allow usernames with an @ ?

Not that I'm aware of, from the command line, that is.
I do believe that curl will allow you to do this, however, with the -u switch.  I'd recommend giving it a shot:
