The non-inetutils 'ftp' tool installed on my old debian etch machine
have the parameters below.

        Usage: { ftp | pftp } [-pinegvtd] [hostname]
           -p: enable passive mode (default for pftp)
           -i: turn off prompting during mget
           -n: inhibit auto-login
           -e: disable readline support, if present
           -g: disable filename globbing
           -v: verbose mode
           -t: enable packet tracing [nonfunctional]
           -d: enable debugging
