ProgrammingThis forum is for all programming questions.
The question does not have to be directly related to Linux and any language is fair game.

Yes that is how you would connect manually. But if you just put those commands in the script it won't work. Ftp requests an automatic login which you disable with the -n switch. After that you have to redirect the script commands to the input of the ftp process. Try something like:
# simple ftp script
ftp -n <<EOF
