I can start downloading the file from the "graphical" page with:

lynx ftp://login:pasword@server/file

but this doesn't work:

lynx -dump ftp://login:pasword@server/file

I tried declaring the port (server:21) and the file type (;type =I), but
no luck. Again, I can get the file with wget using the same login and
passwd entries, but just haven't been able to figure out how to redirect
to stdout. And I thought this would be easy. :-)
