man ksh
...
       -e file
              True if file exists.


man ftp
...
     -n          Restrains ftp from attempting ``auto-login'' upon initial
                 connection for non auto-fetch transfers.  If auto-login is
                 enabled, ftp will check the .netrc (see below) file in the
                 user's home directory for an entry describing an account on
                 the remote machine.  If no entry exists, ftp will prompt for
                 the remote machine login name (default is the user identity
                 on the local machine), and, if necessary, prompt for a pass-
                 word and an account with which to login.  To override the
                 auto-login for auto-fetch transfers, specify the username
                 (and optionally, password) as appropriate.
