Yes. Use a third party FTP client. There are a number of good free ones:  http://macorchard.com/filetransfer/

I presume you are trying to do ftp from the Terminal?  The builtin ftp on the Mac has issues with some sites that run in passive mode.  I've had to issue the following incantations:

ftp> passive
Passive mode: off; fallback to active mode: off.
ftp> epsv4
EPSV/EPRT on IPv4 off.

the stuff in bold is what you have to type right after you connect
