    * -n – Suppresses auto-login upon initial connection.
    * -i – Turns off interactive prompting during multiple file transfers.
    * -d – Enables debugging, displaying all ftp commands passed between the client and server.
    * -g – Disables filename globbing, which permits the use of wildcard chracters in local            file and path names.
    * -s:filename – Specifies a text file containing ftp commands; the commands will            automatically run after ftp starts. No spaces are allowed in this parameter. Use           this switch instead of redirection (>).
    * -a – Use any local interface when binding data connection.
    * -w:windowsize – Overrides the default transfer buffer size of 4096.
