Hi. What do you mean by "using command"? Do you mean using FTP from a command line interface (CLI)? FileZilla is a graphical tool and can only be used as such. The only options from the command line that you get are those to launch site manager at start-up or connect to the provided FTP address. There're no options for doing uploads/downloads from the CLI.

If you want to script it, then you can look at some of the tutorials on the web, like http://www.stratigery.com/scripting.ftp.html

Basically it goes down to making a script like this:

#!/bin/sh
HOST='ftp.address'
USER='username'
PASSWD='password'

ftp -n $HOST <<END_SCRIPT
quote USER $USER
quote PASS $PASSWD

-- you ftp commands like PUT, GET, etc. here--

quit
END_SCRIPT
exit 0
There's no such thing as "impossible". :)

You can also use Midnight Commander which works in text mode too.
It starts with the command: mc
Then choose Left tab-> FTP transfer
To make connection with a server:
username@ftp.your-server.com
Then it will ask you for the server password.
