FTP (File Transfer Protocol)
initially used in Unix systems a number of years ago to copy and move shared
With the development of the Internet,
FTP found broader application in uploading and downloading online data,
and especially posting websites on ISP servers.
These tasks can now be performed
by a special program called FTP Clients. While the operating system
of MS Windows contains a built-in FTP client system, it has failed to gain
popularity and can only run in command line mode.
Before choosing an FTP program,
it is especially important to look for a solution that delivers a full
range of options for files and folders both on local computer systems and
such as uploading , downloading,
moving, deleting and modifying file properties. All other features
are helpful, but non-essential options which tend to clutter the interface
and usually duplicate the functions of other programs.
