cli ftp client location

Where is a standard command line ftp client program in the Mageia 6 distro? :?:
I have found lftp, and several gui ftp clients.

I am testing a script that will run on a hosted virtual linux system. It does not offer a CLI window to run scripts manually. Or to test snippets of a script to debug it on the system. I am trying to test a script that uses ftp on my Mageia 6 system. But the production host is a different system. For obvious reasons, I do not want to test with an ftp client with enhanced features.

If you just want to download files from a known ftp:// URL, try wget or curl. For full-featured CLI FTP clients try ftp (in the krb5-appl-clients package) or ncftp.
