How to send a file via FTP using SQL Server 2000 scheduled jobs?

I'm using SQL Server 2000 SP3, and I would like to schedule a job to send a text file via FTP.  Is this possible?  If so, how would I accomplish this?

I'd like to do so, without having to install any 3rd party add-ons, if possible.

Yes, I found that on Google as well.  I read the comments on that and a few people were saying that they didn't have the stored procedure or that it didn't work.  I'll give it a try and see how it works.

Any other information is greatly appreciated.

let me know if you need anything else.

best regards
