AFAIK Rio is still being developed by Keith, probably not "ready" yet.

In fact, ServerDirectory/FileDirectory and friends can work with ftp
servers out-of-the-box in Squeak. I don't have pointers or snippets right
now but if you still fail to find anything, cc me privately and I can dig
something out.

I would guess you can easily find example code in Monticello - since it
can use ftp repos for snapshots.
