These two are not equivalent. What ftpget does is the same as the
standard intends. Note that the standard does "CD opt" not "CD /opt".

To access below your home directory you can do various things - one easy
thing is to provide a symlink 'root -> /' in the home directory; another
is to use ../../ (etc).

The Symantec web page is broken if it doesn't use some trick to take you
to the root directory and their ftp site doesn't log you into the root
