Thanks to the responders - I now have 5 ways to ftp files.  ftp, ncftp, lftp
gftp and perl.  The last 3 will actually handle >4Gb files.  I found perl
the most novel.  The 6 line script from the man page for Net::FTP while
very basic was the first I found that worked.

   use Net::FTP;
   $ftp = Net::FTP->new("mirror.hiwaay.net", Debug => 1);
   $ftp->login("anonymous",'anonymous mentor com');
   $ftp->cwd("/redhat/fedora/linux/core/test/1.92/i386/iso");
   $ftp->get("FC2-test3-i386-DVD.iso");
   $ftp->quit;
