Anon FTP Client
My web hoster allows people to make anon ftp connects which points to a particular directory. To see goto ftp.mikemill.org
You can download the file test.txt but can't upload anything.
I want to write a client that can download that file.
I've gotten the client to connect but I'm not sure what to send to the server to get the file. When I use putty to connect to port 21 it wants me to login.
Can anyone point me in the right directions please.
edit: Figured it out. Have to login as "anonymous"
One solution is winsock. Start with winsock. Then search Google for FTP protocol specifications.
Winsocks don't work in Linux :)
Connecting wasn't the problem. Just couldn't figure out how to login anonymously.
But as I said in the edit I figured it out :)
