can't access with FTP using terminal


I was wondering why I can't connect through Terminal to my FTP server.

It perfectly works through client FTP (I've attached an image with settings)

But I can't using the terminal

patricks-macbook:~ aneuryzma$ ftp
Connected to
220 Servage FTP5
331 Password required for tokotiz
530 Login incorrect.
ftp: Login failed.

I tried many times the same password I use on FTP GUI client but nothing...

OK, it looks like a telnet server is not set up. I see Servage is an ISP. You should contact their technical support to see if they can assist you. Without access to the server side of things, there is not much we can do to help you.

I see you are from amsterdam. Can you just make sure that the keyboard layout is the same on your Mac OSX gui and the command line, I suspect the command line to be in U.S. English. So if your password use special character it is probably the cause.
