Does FTP have Auth SSL option?
I am working with a supplier who's just tightened their security. They moved from an anonymous FTP setup to a more secure alternative. The parameters they gave me

Host: Port: 4421 Path: /mailbox User: (...) Password: (...) Auth SSL: yes Passive mode: yes

ftp -pn 4421
allows me to connect but it hangs. I need to specify the "Auth SSL" option in my command line (and script) but how do I do that?

I read the ftp man page of my host and found nothing. I looked at using sftp instead but it seems that the latter does not use passive mode.

My host info: Linux 2.6.18-128.el5 x86_64 GNU/Linux

sftp is NOT an ftp client. it's an ftp style transfer over SSH. Not compatible in any way.

Curl can support ftps, that might suit you.
