FTP

A FTP command-line utility program is usually a clinet file transfer protocol (FTP) application used for transferring files to and from other computers on a computer network.

FTP on WinXP

The FTP command-line utility program on WinXP is used to transfer file to and from a computer running an FTP server service. The FTP can be used interactively through the FTP terminal.

Getting Started

The FTP program can be started from a DOS prompt by typing the "ftp" command directly. The possible command line options of the WinXP FTP when starting the FTP program are:

FTP [-v] [-d] [-i] [-n] [-g] [-s:filename] [-a] [-w:windowsize] [-A] [host]

  • -v: Suppresses verbose display of remote server responses.
  • -n: Suppresses auto-login upon initial connection.
  • -i: Turns off interactive prompting during multiple file transfers.
  • -d: Enables debugging, displaying all ftp commands passed between the client and server.
  • -g: Disables filename globbing, which permits the use of wildcard chracters in local file and path names.
  • -s:filename: Specifies a text file containing ftp commands; the commands will automatically run after ftp starts. No spaces are allowed in this parameter. Use this switch instead of redirection (>).
  • -a: Use any local interface when binding data connection.
  • -A: login as anonymous.
  • -w: windowsize - Overrides the default transfer buffer size of 4096.
  • host: Specifies the computer name or IP address of the remote computer to connect to. The computer, if specified, must be the last parameter on the line.

Notes:

  • - mget and mput commands take y/n/q for yes/no/quit.
  • - Use Control-C to abort commands.
