If you can open the socket then all you need to do is implement the FTP protocol.

The FTP protocol is available on the web, it is an RFC (RFC 959) with a large number of modifying or additional RFCs for extra functionality.

Wikipedia is a fine place to start since it gives a synopsis and then links to all the required RFCs.
