File Transfer Protocol (FTP) was one of the first applications implemented on the Internet, and it is also one of the most fundamental. Almost all Internet hosts support it, as do almost all browsers. This volume offers exhaustive coverage of the rules governing how clients and servers communicate to enable successful data transfers via FTP. In addition to documentation of file transfer mechanics, readers will find practical instructions on many special techniques, including using file transfers for network booting and the security issues relating to file transfer over the Internet. Despite the growing acceptance of protocols specific to the Web, there remain many scenarios in which simple file transfer offers clear-cut advantages. Thus, this book is certain to prove an important source of information for years to come.
