Never tried that, but I did try using ftp+netrc
As you probably know, you can create the .netrc file and insert there 
everything you want to do, then just ftp IP will make everything you filed in 
the .netrc, for instance:

machine 192.168.1.1
login whatever
password foo
macdef init
prompt
ascii
cd /mnt/backup
mget important_file1
bye

Hope this helps
Manuel
