ftp from cmd line
two questions. is it possible to use the command line to transfer files from my computer to someone elses. if the intiate the contact? can I open a cmd.exe window and do this.
2nd question: does anyone know how to connect to another person's computer and use the tools on theirs in windows xp. I know there is some tool somewhere but I can't remember and I"m not quite sure how to do this.
btw everything is authourized. no hacking going on here. thanks.
Go to the command prompt (WindowsKey+R is the most expedient method) and type ftp. Then once you are in the ftp command prompt, type help for available commands.
Provided that both computers are set up properly, powered on and connected through a network (the internet works for this), you can use a Remote Desktop Connection to take control of a non-local machine. Go to Start, All Programs, Accessories, Communications, Remote Desktop Connection. A dialog box will open up asking you for an IP address to connect to. When you're finished, be sure to Start, Log Off, Log Off and minimize the remote desktop to allow it to close itself rather than simply clicking on the Remote Desktop's X button to force a disconnect.
edit: I appologize, I forgot to mention that after typing Windows+R, you need to run either cmd or command to open the command prompt.
