Seems that netcat would be a better replacement for ftp for your case. 
It can read from pipes like so: your_command_here | nc -n 
(would send the output of your_command_here to host, port 
1000, to a listening netcat there, which would presumably write its 
input to a local disk file)

By the way, please don't top-post, it messes readability and loses 
context for the archives.
