I have a jailbroken Ipad and found an existing ftp binary. It sits in a bunch of places. One of the locations is:

usr\lib\apt\methods

I can ssh into the Ipad from my pc, or get a shell by mobile terminal. I can launch it with ./ftp but am unable to do anything with it. The console reads:

100 capabilities
version 1.0
send-Config: true

It runs, and normal ftp commands get to the console, but don't produce any output. Is there a config file somewhere that I can tweak to get this working. I'm sure there are ftp clients on Cydia, but it would be much more fun to hack this out and get the built in client working.
