ok, this must be easy...
I opened a console, typed : ftp <server name> (of my school), and logged in succesfully. Now, how can I copy files from there to my computer and the other way? what commands do i use..?

The long answer:

Before you connect type "man ftp" and have a read through the various commands.

Once you're connected, if you forget a command type "help" or "help <command>" for a reminder.

The short answer:
get <filename>
put <filename>

Have fun!
