from ftplib import FTP


objec=FTP("yourIP")
objec.login("youruser","passs")
objec.storbinary('STOR yourfile.txt', open('yourexixtingfile.txt', 'rb'))

you can use the built-in ftp library (http://stackoverflow.com/questions/12613797/python-script-uploading-files-via-ftplink text) or you can avoid using ftp and trying via xml-rpc that's a more stable solution IMO.

If you need to understand how to deal with xml-rpc, you can look at the official docs here:

https://doc.openerp.com/6.1/developer/12_api/#xml-rpc-web-services.

do not forget that XML-RPC cannot manage binary files as-is, you'll have to read the content and convert it into a base64 string.
