Defining FTP

post1.jpgFile Transfer Protocol (FTP) is an Internet standard where files are exchanged between two computers connected to the Internet. FTP is an Internet application that utilizes the Transfer Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) protocols in moving the files between the sender and the receiver.

Common usage of the FTP is transferring a web page created by the developer to the computer which acts as the network server. The network server in turn displays the web page on the computer of the user that accessed it. This is basically how files move within the World Wide Web. There are many commercial FTP programs on the Internet that you can buy or you can also search for free FTP programs.

SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol) vs. FTPS (FTP over SSL) Part 3


In choosing the right FTP, the answer would depend on your goals and requirements. Generally speaking, SFTP is superior to FTPS. It would be a good idea to implement both protocols; however, they are different in terms of their concepts and supported commands.

If you have a server that have FTP support but does not have SFTP/SSH clients or it needs to be accessed from personal devices such as PDAs, smartphones, etc), it is a good idea to use FTPS. However, if you are building a custom security solution, the better option is SFTP. As for the side of the clients, the requirements depend on the server that you plan to connect to.

P4P Aims to Speed Peer-to-Peer File Transfers, Reduce Traffic

The New York Times wrote a story last week about an alarm about the amount of data flowing through the Internet. It has been observed that the bandwidth is taking a major hit these days… there’s just too much data being passed to and fro.  While the story focused on the video such as YouTube, it’s also true that the P2P traffic – much as ISPs may hate to admit it – makes up a very significant percentage of network traffic.

The P4P protocol aims to reduce all the traffic by using network topology data to select peers intelligently, instead of a random, thus increasingly routing efficiency. It is obvious: the more routers or hops traffic has to take, the less efficient it becomes.

Some of the features that can be seen on FileZilla are: ease of use, support for various file transfer protocols, runs on different operating systems, supports different languages, resume and transfer capability, drag and drop feature, speed limits can be configured, filtering of filenames and a wizard to configure your network. This is probably one of the most flexible and preferred FTP clients available in the market today.

Developer Tools


If you need to implement file transfer capability and you are a software developer, you will need to search for the components to do the job. You have built-in support for FTPS in a .NET Framework. However, functionality of this class does not include any support for SFTP or SSH.

In VCL, you will have a selection of free libraries and components which provide FTP functionality. You can get FTPS for free when you add OpenSSL to them. You can use one of the commercially available libraries for FTPS and SSL support if you do not want to deal with OpenSSL DLLs.

About online fraud

Online auctions offer just about every product imaginable. Although there are legitimate sellers, there is a danger that products may be misrepresented or not delivered. The Internet Crime Complaint Center shares the tell-tale signs of potential online auction fraud to Internet users.

Beware of a seller posing as a United States resident who then sends an email saying that he is overseas or asks for money under a different name. The fund requests are usually through Western Union, MoneyGram or wire transfers, and therefore cannot be recovered.

On the seller side, be wary of buyers who request for shipping to another country through ways that avoid customs or duties, and for credit card purchases where the cardholders address is not the shipping address. The authorization of the cardholder should always be obtained first.

More on FTP – How it Works

FTPThough FTP is a straightforward facility to transfer files through the internet easily, without much fuss it is dependent on several factors that makes the process possible. First, you need a client software that can be installed for uploading and downloading, allowing your desktop to take on the same plane as the server that is handling the file distribution. The said “SERVER” may be a simple desktop too but is the so-called traffic light which tells clients, where the files are coming from and who the packets of data are for.

Sending Large Files

There are many ways to transfer files for free, even if it’s a large file! You just need to know how to do it correctly. If you are wanting to transfer files from your computer to the internet and you want to do it all in the same time, what you need to do is gather each file necessary in a folder. Once it is in a folder, compress it. If you are using Windows, right click on the file and choose “Send to”, then choose “Compressed (zipped) folder”  These files can be images, documents, videos, etc.

Compressing these files will make it easier to send. If it is not compressed, you will have to put files one by one. From there, you can send it online then it will be called a File Transfer Protocol or FTP. This is when you can transfer files from one host to another through the internet.
