From a PC -> unix server?
You have to have an account on the unix server - username password
Code:
ftp <unix server nodename>  username password
ftp> cd /path/to/unix/directory
ftp> put myfile
ftp> bye

No account? use the username=anonymous password=your emailid
if the server allows anonymous ftp.

Code:
ftp hostname
user: foo
password: bar
put c:\my\windows\file target-file-on-unix
quit

alternatively use "cd" to switch to the correct directy in a windows command prompt prior to the upload.

Code:
ftp hostname
user: foo
password: bar
put file
quit

Typically it will end up in the home directory of 'foo'.
