    i!-EquipmentMonitor should have what you need. There's also i!-FTPSender which might help.
    These are a good start but you'll most likely have to adapt it to your needs depending on what you're trying to accomplish. There are a lot of FTP commands that aren't used in these modules that allow you to various FTP options;
    I've found the MDTM command to be very useful.

    Oh! Not all servers support all commands. There are slight differences in most FTP servers.

    Filezilla FTP Server is also what I've been using for years. Free download from SourceForge or just google it. I would also download the client app too.

    If you're talking about doing FTP both ways from NetLinx code, it can be done. Study up on the FTP protocol - read through the RFCs for it and such. You'll have to write it yourself though. The key to FTP is that you're using TWO IP_Client connections - one talks with the server to issue commands, the second actually transports the data.
