Little piece of code that automates FTP, putting files whose names were
passed as args:

import sys
from ftplib import FTP

lnomarch = sys.argv[1:]
dir = '/local/BACKUP/logs'
machine = 'masbue'
transported = []

print "Opening conection"
ftp = FTP(machine)
ftp.login('myUsername', 'myPassword')
for nomarch in lnomarch:
        print "Putting", nomarch
        arch = open(nomarch, 'r')
        nombrebase = os.path.basename(nomarch)
        ftp.storbinary('STOR ' + nombrebase, arch)
