>From the PC this can be done with a batch file like;

@echo off
if "%1"=="" goto NOUSER
if "%2"=="" goto NOPASS

echo open > ftp.scr
echo %1 >> ftp.scr
echo %2 >> ftp.scr
echo get myfile c:\myfile >> ftp.scr
echo quit >> ftp.scr

ftp -s:ftp.scr
del ftp.scr

goto END

echo *** No USER ID supplied ***
goto END

echo *** No PASSWORD supplied ***
goto END


This will create a ftp.scr file, pipes out the supplied userid & password
system & file to get, then pipes this ftp.scr into FTP.

Afterwards it deletes the ftp.scr 'cos the password is in it !!

Using one of the shareware prgrams that convert .bat files to .com files, this
program source becomes more secure.
