The XBee WiFi modules do not include any FTP client or server functionality in their firmware. You'd need to implement your own FTP client to be able to send a file via FTP.

You might be better implementing your own protocol to send the data to an intermediate PC/server, or using a simpler protocol, for example TFTP, that would be easier to implement.
