Do you want to FTP from SQL*Plus? If so, then the best way may be to write a Java Stored Procedure to envoke a shell command (the FTP command). You can even write a batch file for your FTP command. Please refer to the main pages for 'ftp' for more information.
I'm not sure if I answered your question or not. If I didn't, please be more specific in the advice that you seek.
