I'm able to click it on a windows xp / thunderbird, and it comes up in a 
file browser windows.  I just copy it from that window to a file, and done.

I didn't go thru a command line client, but there are always a multitude 
of proxy / port (firewall) / passive issues with FTP that can occur.  
Many of the tools seem to try all the options and find one that works.

BTW when I have to, I use filezilla to get to most sites.  I almost 
never mess with command line FTP if I can avoid it.
