Do not put in the USER or PASSWORD key words.  Just put in the valid user id
on a line by itself.  Same with password.  As in your example, you only
typed in what was after the prompt, not the prompt.

Subject: RE: FTP to a port number on a computer

I have tried both methods as far as entering in the user and password.  I
have many .bat files that do ftp and many ftp input files that contain
script to do it with db2 files.  My problem seems to be becuase of the
port#.  I can do it all manually from a DOS command now, I have the correct
syntax for the port#.  However when I put it in script i get invalid user.
I am not sure on the examples on FAQ and even from other users on the list
you put the word 'user' before the user and password.  This did nothing put
cause more errors as it thought i was trying to logon as 'user' and was then
sending 2 parms.

Running manually from a DOS command:
ftp> open 20
