In this case I wanted to transfer a file to a remote host (put):

ncftp -u user -p password host

Once logged in simply push the file to the remote server:

put filename.extension

To retrieve a file from the remote server cd into the directory where the file lives then:

get filename.extension

*Pre-req – ncftp is installed
