SUMMARY FTP (file transfer protocol) is a file transfer utility commonly used with UNIX systems.
FTP is capable of using scripts (lists of commands from external files). The following example demonstrates a script that opens a connection to IP address 126.96.36.199, logs on to the host as a guest with the password "guest," uploads the File1 file, and then quits: open 188.8.131.52 user guest guest put file1 quit
MORE INFORMATION You must use the -s option for FTP to read this file under Windows. If the previous script was in a file called Test.scr, you can start the script by typing: ftp -s:test.scr
You can specify the host name in the command line and then use the script to process the login. For example, if you use the following command line ftp -s:test.scr 184.108.40.206
the script file should read as follows: user guest guest put file1 quit
However, if the FTP host implements automatic login, this command will not work. To turn off automatic login, use the -n switch in the command line as follows: ftp -n -s:test.scr 220.127.116.11
