The 'FTP' utility is just for transferring files, most commonly from one server to another. FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol. For information on FTPing files, please refer to this guide on FTP for Beginners.
When FTP'ing dump files, make sure you explicitly use FTP in BINARY mode. You can do this on the command line by typing "bin" and hitting Enter before you use the "put" or "get" command to initiate the transfer.
