you would use mysqldump or mysqlhotcopy to do the dump on the server and have to ftp that file to your computer.

since the data isn't on your computer I don't think you can run something on your computer to back it up.
if the server allows remote mysql connections, you could run mysqldump on your machine, but it would be much, much slower than running it remotely and using ftp
