How to use curl command line to use ftps?

I'm a newcomer to curl, so I hope this isn't a dumb question. What is the
syntax for using a secure FTP connection?

I couldn't find any examples, so I tried the following command on a Windows
XP client:

  curl -k -v --user name:passwd

The response is:

  * About to connect() to port 22
  * Trying ddd.ddd.ddd.ddd ... connected
  * Connected to (ddd.ddd.ddd.ddd) port 22
  < SSH-2.0-OpenSSH_3.6.1p2

After that, it hangs. What am I doing wrong?
