FTP Unveiling


A software standard that is used to send files to a web browser is called an FTP (File Transfer Protocol). We can use this protocol when we are uploading sites on a server – allowing the movement of files between computers. In other words, it will help to upload files coming from a computer to a web server, and then recovering from the web server to another computer.

Another use for FTP is to transfer files between computers with users on a larger intranet. This is especially useful for files that are bigger for an e-mail attachment. Once you have unveiled FTP in its truest sense, you will come to know how it will support you in managing your site.

FTP Client

The software that is used to move files from one computer to another connected computer using the internet is called an FTP Client. It has to be installed in the computer and you can only use it when connected live to the internet. A traditional look of an FTP Client is a two-paned design. The files on your computer can be seen on the left pane while the files on the remote computer can be seen on the right pane.

Transferring of files is done easily by just dragging-and-dropping the files from the left pane to the right or vise versa. Files can also be transferred by highlighting a file and then click a direction arrow which is located between the panes.

Google’s Secure FTP

With the news about how the government is easily spying on the people with the help of different internet browsers, Google is defending itself by saying that they do not participate in any government programs that will give access to people’s private data. This is what the company’s spokesperson has made clear, refusing to be a part of the recent controversy regarding the NSA PRISM program.

Chris Gaither told the website Wired:

“When required to comply with these requests, we deliver that information to the US government — generally through secure FTP transfers and in person. The US government does not have the ability to pull that data directly from our servers or network.”

They are the first to refute the allegations. Facebook and Yahoo has not yet clarified which system is being used to transmit court ordered data to the government. Google said that they have been asked by the Feds to participate but they have declined, refusing to lose the trust of their clients.


App to replace FTP


With the ever changing and improvement in technology, it is just inevitable that people continuously develop something that will make different computer- related processes easier. Take for example, transferring of files. The most common way to transport files from one host to another is through FTP or file transfer protocol, now however, there is a way to do the same process in a much more efficient manner which is through an app.

Webcor has been trying to develop a cutting edge way to do what an FTP is doing. It is a definite upgrade to the regular FTP. This new app allows users to store, access, manage and share files from just about any location. This breakthrough was not meant to be this big and successful. It started with 50 users and has now jumped to 200. This is not the first app that was developed to do the same, but Webcor has managed to make it work because of diligence.



Sending Large Files

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.
