Scripting FTP transactions ... how?

I have this seemingly trivial problem: I wish to do some FTP file transfers
from within a Bourne shell script that runs on top of CygWin and Windows 9x.
On Solaris, Linux etc I would use the plain old "ftp" command, possibly
creating a .netrc file on-the-fly if needed. This does not seem to work
at all with the Win32 FTP command. Furthermore, CygWin Tools does not
contain an ftp command either.
I did look around for some shareware client, but without success so far.
If I were doing only downloads (no uploads) I could get along with Lynx.
However, I need a solution for the upload case as well.
Any hints welcome! There ought to be a solution for a trivial problem
like this, only I don't know in which direction to look.
