"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

you can use ftp script for this
just use the command line options in a batch file
Create the file script.txt and enter:
cd /htdocs/backups
put C:\backups\mybackup.rar

and run with ftp -s:script.txt
