Set default username and password for ftp client?

Set default username and password for ftp client?

I have to ftp one server many times on day and I want to avoid retyping username and password.So I want to set default username and password for ftp client for spec ip/site, or configure the ftp daemon to make it keep ftp session as long as it could.

With ncftp you can specify username on password, and also let you create bookmarks that include password. ncftpput/ncftpget are better options for scripting.

"I think you can use a file which contains the username and password and reference it via the ftp command (-s:filename option in windowsXP) in the commandline. I dont know the exact syntax of the file that contains the username and password but i think this page may help.
