Command line using Filezilla[?]

Filezilla isn't a command-line program, it is a GUI program.

Any suggestions are welcome

So far as I know, almost all versions of windows have a command-line ftp command.

If you need something better, I suggest a Windows port of ncftpput

The purpose of ncftpput is to do file transfers from the command-line without entering an interactive shell. This lets you write shell scripts or other unattended processes that can do FTP. It is also useful for advanced users who want to send files from the shell command line without entering an interactive FTP program such as ncftp.

You can upload an entire directory tree of files by using the -R flag. Example:

$ ncftpput -R /incoming /tmp/stuff

This would create a /incoming/stuff hierarchy on the remote host.
