Annoing Connectivity Issue
EDIT: Sorry, this issue has changed quite a lot, so I've rewitten this post:
Info: servers are CentOS 5, they run Plesk, use ProFTP.
Hi guys, on each of my webservers, I'm trying to set up a backup solution. I have a backup directory here: /home/site_backups. I want to be able to access this via FTP, so I created a new user, and that all works fine when I access it with FileZilla. However, when I try and use wget to pull the files, it doesn't work. Here's the command I'm using:
wget --ftp-user=[user] --ftp-password=[pass] [IP]/file.tar.gz (I use 'ftp colon //' on the front of the URL, but I can't post that here apparently until I've made 15 posts.)
It just says 'Connecting to xx.xxx.xx.xxx:21...' and doesn't connect.
This server has several IP addresses, and I've noticed that when I try to do this for any FTP account on the default/primary server IP address, I get the same problem. If I use the same command to get a file from the server which uses one of the other IP addresses, it works fine.
I'm a Linux noob, so I'm not really sure how exactly IP addresses work with Linux, but I guess they're administrated by Plesk, so it might be an issue with that? Totally stumped right now!
Also, I can't seem to ping the primary address of any of the servers, but I can do it for the other IP addresses of the servers, so there's something to do with that I'm missing.

You can use ftp from the command line.
Once you get a good connection, you can play around with the options like get, put, and entering the password.
