Name

FTP — \windows\system32\ftp.exe

Synopsis

FTP (File Transfer Protocol) is used to transfer files to and from a remote computer, typically over an Internet connection. When you start FTP, you are connecting to a remote host, to which commands are issued by typing in the prompt. (If you specify an ftp:// URL, the commands are typed automatically.)

TIP

Although each FTP session requires a username and password, many servers allow "anonymous" connections. Enter anonymous as the username and an email address (or, frankly, any bogus text) as the password to log in.
