windows server 2012 ftp ftp ip just hangs

We are getting a new windows 2012 server.  We have a batch script to ftp a file. When i run it, it stays in the cmd line open 10.0.0.x. If i open the comand line:  ftp 10.0.0.x, it just hangs. I  don't need ftp server. We just need to ftp client. How do we activate ftp in the server.

ftp is a client / server communication protocol
if you don't have a server, then there is nothing to connect to
you need to have an ftp server running to use an ftp client and to transfer files
