<cfftp>

The other transfer protocol this chapter examines is the File Transfer Protocol (FTP). FTP is a streamlined mechanism for transferring files from one computer to another. Because both ASCII and binary transfers are supported by the FTP protocol, it is a de facto way of distributing software and files across the Internet. This protocol is not used as a means to interact with other servers for processing, as HTTP is used. Rather, FTP provides a mechanism for delivery or pulling across the Internet.

In ColdFusion, the <cfftp> tag is used to implement FTP operations. In its default configuration, the <cfftp> tag caches connections for reuse within the same template.
