Not sure where the official help is for FTP.EXE (FTP /? doesn't work unfortunately), but List of FTP commands for the Microsoft command-line FTP client should give you everything you need in that respect.

From the details of the Open command it seems entering the port# after the IP or name of the server might work. Otherwise, syntax for specifying a server is often seen where a specific port may be applied after a colon (:) as Jonathan suggested.

Good luck :-)

It seems that /? will work with FTP.EXE as long as a (dummy) host is also supplied. Not very intuitive I grant you, but worse is that the help doesn't explain how to override the port anywhere, so it's down to trial and error I'm afriad :-(
