ftp script not able to connect to ftp server.

I have the following ftp script to get files from a remote location.
However, on running the script I find that I am not even able to connect to ftp server.

I am able to connect to ftp server using other GUI ftp tools like WS_FTP using the same IP.

IP used here is a dummy IP.

What can go wrong here?

#!/bin/ksh
ftp -vnd "111.111.111.111" << ++ 1>>readme.log 2>&1
user "me" "passwd"
prompt off
ascii
cd /f001/sftp/abc
lcd /export/home/abc
get BSH`date +%y%m%d`.HIST
bye
++
# 2  
why is there a space betwee << and ++ ?

Remove that try
# 3  
Even this does not connect!
ftp -vnd "111.111.111.111"

Planning this:
wget --ftp-user=me --ftp-password=passwd ftp://111.111.111.111/export/home/abc/$file

I didn't mean to remove the entry

it should be modified as

Code:
ftp -vnd "111.111.111.111" <<++ 1>>readme.log 2>&1
