Ok, i must be misunderstanding something. Here is what i got so far:
So, i'm not sure what i type in next. The path of the file on my computer's desktop is:
ftp> open myhost
Connected to myhost.
220 csa FTP server ready.
Name (myhost:name): name
331 Password required for name.
230 User name logged in.
Remote system type is UNIX.
Using binary mode to transfer files.
200 PORT command successful.
150 Opening ASCII mode data connection for file list.
226 Transfer complete.
22 bytes received in 0.016 seconds (1.32 Kbytes/s)
ftp> cd TestDir
250 CWD command successful.
200 Type set to A.
C:\Documents and Settings\User\Desktop\Test.cpp
And i want to put the file "Test" from my desktop into the unix directory "TestDir".
I tried this, but it didn't work.
I also tried
ftp> put Test.cpp
Test.cpp: No such file or directory
and did the put command again, but it still didn't work. I'm not sure what i'm doing wrong.
ftp> lcd C:\Documents and Settings\User\Desktop\
usage: lcd local-directory
Am I correct by saying the LOCAL machine is my computer, and the REMOTE machine is the unix machine?
