    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.

    Thanks

    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
