FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol, and is the
facility that allows sending or retrieving files to and from a remote machine.
This module will cover some of the basics to get you started with using FTP.
FTP is traditionally invoked from a command line environment such as the DOS
or UNIX prompts.
However, it is also possible to work with FTP using a windowed interface
such as that found in the Windows version of FTP and the Mac version of
FTP ! Both are admitedly more user-friendly !
To run those programs you should double-click on the appropriate icon
(typically labelled FTP or PC-NFS FTP on PC's or FTP
or Fetch on the Mac).
This will give you an FTP window which has two or more panes side
You may want to re-adjust the sizes of your windows to allow you to see the
Mosaic/Netscape and FTP applications simultaneously (Windows users may
wish to minimise their Program Manager window
for easier viewing). Then go through the procedures on the next pages with
the help of this tutorial.
