FTP DHCP database to a netware FTP server

I would like to know how to ftp, from the router, to a netware based ftp server. Considering the fact that you need to provide a username and password.

I am currently ftp-ing my dhcp databases from the routers to an NT Server. This command(below) works fine...

'ip dhcp database ftp://Cisco:ncs271@'

However, I am now required to move this to a Netware server and it is not working. I think the problem is that cisco routers cannot send ftp to a context based user as it has to login to the ftp service before it can transfer the file. Where as an nt servers ftp only needs username:password. ie: the command below doesn't work.

'ip dhcp database ftp://username:password@'

Am i right in saying that this cannot be done or can someone offer me some advice on how to get this to work.

Thank you
