Remove the []'s from your port number, and it should work (it does
for me, from Win98...  you didn't say what operating system, but
I figured it had to be some variant of windows if you're using a
.BAT file)

I use it for port 8021 all the time.

I use a batch file called "asput.bat" which I use from the command
line to stick things onto my AS/400 through an FTP proxy that's located
on port 8021.  It looks like this:

@echo off
echo open 8021 > %temp%\asput.fts
echo klemscot >> %temp%\asput.fts
echo password >> %temp%\asput.fts
echo quote site namefmt 1 >> %temp%\asput.fts
echo binary >> %temp%\asput.fts
echo put %1 %2 >> %temp%\asput.fts
echo quit >> %temp%\asput.fts
ftp -s:%temp%\asput.fts
del %temp%\asput.fts

then I run it like so:

asput C:\leopard.jpg /qopensys/testsck/leopard.jpg
