It cant connect to server. Maybe there are some other solution that could be used for connecting to server?

I managed to connect using this code

Code:
ssh user@something.com

I want to when is connected to FTP to copy files from folder /data/*HIGH*.7z (i don't know if this is written correctly. I want to copy all files from data Folder that have word HIGH in name) and copy them to another server.

If the server isn't actually running an FTP server, you won't be able to connect to it with FTP.

If you can connect with ssh, perhaps you can copy with scp:

Code:
scp /data/*HIGH*.7z username@host:/path/to/destination

If you want it to happen passwordlessly, you will need to arrange shared keys in advance, because ssh will not let you force it to read a password from a script.
