The answer is pretty easy, AFAIK, NoteTab doesn't have an internal FTP
facility. What it does have is the capability to act as a frontend,
using various clips and clipbooks, for 3rd party FTP utilities, if they
have a commandline interface.
I use a clip/book, or parts of it, named FTPZIP. It is written by Jody
Adair and is written to use versions of WSFTP as the FTP engine. If you
have WsFTP this is the download address for the clipbook from NoteTab's
Another option is a clipbook written to use Windows own command line FTP
utility, FTP.exe, should be C:\Windows\system32 folder. The download
address for the FTP clipbook follows.
As I stated, I use modified parts of FTPZIP and WsFTP, and I also use
the ftp facility in my file manager POWERDESK. I use these 2 methods
almost exclusively. On very rare occasions do I start the GUI for WsFTP.
There is also a 3rd option, Pick your own FTP utility with a command
line interface and start constructing your frontend clips for its use.
This may be something you would want to try sometime after you become
more familiar with the Clip language.

NoteTab has an included clip library, "FTP", that works with the ftp.exe that is
included with Windows.
Here is a link to my NoteTab page and a NoteTab outline of FTP commands that I
collected a few years ago. BTW these FTP commands work with the Unix/Linux FTP
