The Answer is :

  It would appear your version of TCP/IP Services was not correctly
  installed, or you have not reloaded the command tables since the
  installation.  (Log out and back in, or reboot the system, or use
  On OpenVMS versions prior to V6.2, access to the FTP client is
  via the FTP command, which involves the FTP utility.
  With OpenVMS V6.2 and later, you can use COPY/FTP, DIRECTORY/FTP
  and similar commands.
  The OpenVMS Wizard will assume you have configured FTP client and/or
  FTP server, as required.
