    FTP and Ident Server :: Winsock

    Hello.

    I am developing an FTP client. Some FTP servers request an identity server. I am not familiar with an Identity Server protocol.

    Please post any information or link. Basically I need to know the protocol from beginning to end.

    - connect to FTP server
    - server wait for Identity response
    ...
    // now what?
    ...
    ...

    If I am not mistaken, the FTP client needs to create a socket, bind it to the identity port set by the user, and listen for an identity request from the FTP server.

    Thanks,

    Kuphryn

    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]
