ftp protocol deficient

Actually none of the problems that I had have anything to do with my 
command line client and were all either ftp or sftp or lftp connected.  
The solution I found works though I later learned about putting macros 
in my .netrc file to handle updates like this.  I will find out if those 
macros work later today.
These macros will not be machine-specific since I have other things I do 
with those machines as well.  If those machines were special-purpose 
machines dedicated to file updates I'd need to write those macros in 
another way.

I'm holding on to the scripts I wrote in case the .netrc solution proves 
to be a failure too.
