Two possible situations in this case.

1. You want to move the file you just transferred.
2. You want to move a file which was not transferred.

For 1. you can ftp as follows

get/put original.file.name new.file.name

i.e. you can decide what name to want to save it as. If, new.file.name is not provided, original.file.name is picked up.

For case 2. I dont know.. Linux
