    FTP Server :: Winsock

    Hi.

    I am in the predesign stage of an FTP server. My goal is to release an FTP server within a year. I have some basic questions.

    First, when an FTP client sends a command, does the server read the data and then basically search the data received, which is text, from a list of FTP commands such as get, ls, etc? How does a typically transcript between an FTP client and FTP server look like?

    Secondly, where is reliable source for FTP commands? I know a source for TCP/IP commands. Do you use the same commands for FTP i.e. "/get?"

    Lastly, does the FTP client sends the login and password in login->password order or is it opposite?

    Thanks,
    Kuphryn

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