FTP used in Cisco CCNA Exam Tutorial


When studying for the CCNA exam, the first thing that you should do is to memorize a list of port numbers and protocols that run on those ports. If you’re an experienced networker, you would know these protocols – SMTP, FTP, DHCP, and DNS. But maybe you have not heard of one protocol which is vital for working with Cisco switches and routers, and in CCNA exam studies. That’s TFTP – Trivial File Transfer Protocol.

TFTP is a non-secure relative of FTP. There are no authentication scheme and no passwords. It is used in Cisco to perform IOS upgrades and save configs to TFTP Server. Cisco routers can serve as TFTP themselves, or you can use a workstation.

SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol) vs. FTPS (FTP over SSL) Part 2


X.509 certificates include certain information about the certificate owner and the public key. This information will allow the other side to verify the authenticity of the certificate owner and the integrity of the certificate itself. The verification can be done by humans, with the help of a computer. X.509 certificate has a private key, which is normally stored separately from the certificate for security reasons.

Since the associated key is stored separately, the SSH key contains a public key only. It does not contain any information about the key owner. Neither does it contain information that will let one reliably validate the authenticity and integrity.

Verizon P2P Effort Supports Efficient File Sharing

Verizon Communications has announced their tests of an intelligent routing system that allows the content owners to share a very large file through a managed network which reduces download times by storing files with other users rather than the content owners’ servers. This will greatly improve performance and will make file exchanges a little faster.  The Verizon claims a managed Peer-to-Peer (P2P) protocol is a more cost and effective way to transfer large files.

A presentation last Friday in New York revealed the results of the tests, conducted with the collaboration of Pando Networks, a peer-assisted content of delivery service provider, and Yale University, which monitored their test and said it is “phenomenal.”



Internet is not just a luxury, but already a necessity nowadays. The most important function of the internet is to share knowledge around the world – either free or not – which can be propagated through the use of messages, links, or e-mails. The process of transferring this information can be very monotonous, and so FTP came into the picture. It means File Transfer Protocol which is basically the process of transferring data over the internet.

The difference between FTP and HTTP is this: in HTTP one requires a web browser whereas FTP needs a server. Generally, businesses use FTP to permit their clients to upload web pages to their servers.

Comcast to BitTorrent: Let’s Be Friends

Comcast and Bit Torrent Inc. have announced that they’ll work together to ensure the popular file-sharing format that would work more smoothly over Comcast’s network. This is great news and will surely make a lot of bottlenecks easier to work with.  The cable company has been embroiled in a public controversy over its policy of throttling Bit Torrent files even by the means of shaping its network traffic.

According to The Wall Street Journal, The Comcast will switch from hamstringing to a certain file formats just to slow the traffic for those users who consume the most bandwidth. CEO Doug Walker told us earlier this month that he wanted to be partners with Comcast (Tony Werner).

FTP History (Part 1)


FTP protocol or file transfer over the network took root in 1980. This is when the first RFC for FTP protocol was ever published. The functions of FTP include uploading, downloading and deleting files, creating and deleting directories, and reading directory contents. FTP has certain disadvantages which makes it harder to use although it is very popular. Major drawbacks would be the lack of uniform format for directory listing – though not supported by some servers; this problem was partially solved by introducing MLST command. Another disadvantage would be the presence of secondary connection (DATA connection). FTPS is the secured version of FTP.

What is OpenBSD FTP?

post4.JPGOpenBSD is a project that develops and freely distributes multi-platform UNIX-like operating systems. The goal is to focus on security, correctness, standardization and also portability.

OpenBSD arranges FTP mirrors basing it on a master fanout site which is used to feed second level mirrors that other sites could retrieve and mirror from. The second level mirrors are sites that were chosen because they exhibit good network connectivity and are also known OpenBSD community of developers or those that support OpenBSD development and share those types of files. In maintaining a mirror site, find the nearest mirror site in your location. Mirroring from a master fanout site is highly recommended.
