This gets me past the resolve problem, but the FTP server doesn't seem 
to like the user called user%2Ename.

Anyway, I found a way that works, using CURL:

curl -P fxp0 \
ftp://user.name:password@server.mydomain.com/directory/file.ext > \

The key here was -P <interface> - without that, CURL also tried to use 
passive mode.
