Tools FTP from Solaris to Windows

I know how to ftp from a unix server to another unix server, but how do I ftp frmo unix to a sepcified windows folder?

For example, test file to transfer
unix location of file - /tmp/test
windows location to receive file c:\application\interface

normally I would open the connection to the server, in this instance civica01 or IP address of (this works ok)
I would then put the file from the unix server /tmp/test to the location of the other server, this is where my query starts.

ftp doesn't recognise c:\......

Do I need to mount the windows location on the unix server in order to carry out the file transfer?

if there is a ftp server on a windows box is has a "virtual" root directory somewhere on the harddrive... maybe something like c:\ftpserver\ftproot... if you can login vie ftp to the windows machine, the files will go to this path and it looks like / for the unix machine.

there are easy to use tools like WinSCP that you could use it.

Else mounting windows drive in unix would be much more easier
