It is easier to pack the directory tree into a tar ball, then send it. Windows XP and higher can open and unpack a tarball. So can any unix box.

Code:
tar -cvf  mytar.tar  /path/to/send/*
echo "
open somenode.com
USER username password
bin
cd /somewhere
put mytar.tar
bye
" | ftp -n  > ftplog.txt

Its the same tar command, but with other option to extract.

Code:
tar -xvf <TARFILENAME>
