A Sample FTP Session

Now that you know what FTP does, review this section to see how it actually works. For this example, you see how to start FTP, connect to Microsoft's FTP server (used as an example), display and list directories, navigate to a particular directory, and retrieve the files contained there.

Tip

Start from the directory to which you want to transfer files. Starting from this directory saves time because you don't have to perform the !cd command within the FTP program when you start it.
