  RFC 959 (rfc959) - File Transfer Protocol
For files sent with record or page structure a maximum record or page size (in logical bytes) might also be necessary; this is indicated by a decimal integer in a second argument field of RFC 959 October 1985 File Transfer Protocol the command.
RFC 959 October 1985 File Transfer Protocol In the first case, the server closes the data connection (if it is open) and responds with a 226 reply, indicating that the abort command was successfully processed.
FTP REPLIES Replies to File Transfer Protocol commands are devised to ensure the synchronization of requests and actions in the process of file transfer, and to guarantee that the user process always knows the state of the Server.

  File Transfer Protocol - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
FTP or file transfer protocol is a commonly used protocol for exchanging files over any network that supports the TCP/IP protocol (such as the Internet or an intranet).
FTP is an extremely high latency protocol due to the number of commands needed to initiate a transfer.
Other methods of transferring files using SSH which are not related to FTP include SFTP or SCP; in both of these, the entire conversation (credentials and data) is always protected by the SSH protocol.

 Web Publishing: FTP - File Transfer Protocol
FTP Client: The program which initiates an FTP session is the client.

 SSH file transfer protocol - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In computing, the SSH File Transfer Protocol or SFTP is a network protocol that provides file transfer and manipulation functionality over any reliable data stream.
Compared to the earlier SCP protocol, which allows only file transfers, the SFTP protocol allows for a range of operations on remote files – it is more like a remote file system protocol.
A common misconception is that SFTP is simply FTP run over SSH; in fact it is a new protocol designed from the ground up by the IETF SECSH working group.

 RFC 281 (rfc281) - Suggested addition to File Transfer Protocol
In thinking about the use of the proposed File Transfer Protocol (FTP) (RFC #265) for RJS, however, we came to the conclusion that a "restart" procedure might be an extremely useful addition to the FTP.
Many, perhaps most, of the individuals involved in protocol design thus far are oriented toward the use of short date transmissions over the network the transmission lengths that have been considered "typical" are a few characters, a print line, or perhaps as much as a page of text.
At some later time the user initiates a new connection between the file transfer processes at user and server, establishes relevant access privileges, and wishes to resume the transmission which was in progress when the path was broken.

 File Transfer Protocol
This is the server protocol interpreter which responds to commands issued by the client protocol interpreter and drives the server data transfer process.
When a transfer is being set up it always initiated by the client, however either the client or the server may be the sender of data.
At the sending end the file is converted from a local text file to NVT ASCII with end of lines indicated by a CR/LF pair.

 FTP, File Transfer Protocol
FTP uses the Telnet protocol on the control connection.
A new connection is used for each transfer; to avoid running afoul of TCP's TIMEWAIT state, the client picks a new port number each time and sends a PORT command announcing that to the server.
This is the ability of an FTP client to connect to an FTP server with minimal authentication and gain access to public files.

 An Overview of the File Transfer Protocol
The File Transfer Protocol (FTP) was one of the first efforts to create a standard means of exchanging files over a TCP/IP network, so the FTP has been around since the 1970's.
The protocol can be thought of as interactive, because clients and servers actually have a conversation where they authenticate themselves and negotiate file transfers.
Although it was purposely designed into the protocol as a feature, FTP's use of separate data connections cause numerous problems for things like firewalls, routers, proxies which want to restrict or delegate TCP connections, as well as things like IP stacks which want to do dynamic stateful inspection of TCP connections.

 What is file transfer (FTP)?
File Transfer Protocol and Secure File Transfer Protocol (FTP/SFTP) provide a standard way to transfer files between computers, regardless of the operating system on each computer (Windows, Macintosh, UNIX, etc.).
These programs are most commonly used to transfer files from your computer to a web server.
SFTP is more secure than FTP because it ensures that the entire transfer session is encrypted, meaning no passwords are sent in the clear and are therefore much less vulnerable to interception.
