MFC CFtpConnection Questions...

I'm working on a little FTP program for Windows.  I'm using the MFC Internet classes, including CInternetSession and FtpConnection.  Everything works great (I can do dirs, u/d files, etc.), but I haven't been able to get the tandard login welcome Screen most FTP servers send.  Is there some say to do this, using the MFC FTP Classes?

I've also tried deriving a class from CInternetSession, verriding the OnStatusCallback() method, but that didn't seem to do much...

Here's an example of what I'm doing:


CInternetSession *cSession;
CFtpConnection   *pFtp;    

cSession = new CInternetSession( (LPCTSTR)"www.netside.com", 0,
INTERNET_OPEN_TYPE_DIRECT, NULL, NULL, NULL);
pFtp = cSession->GetFtpConnection("www.netside.com", "rat", "lander", 21, FALSE);

// ... Directory Read code, then some copy stuff after this.


Thanks,

What "standard login screen" are you talking about?  Since FTP is a text-based protocol, it doesn't send "screens" around.

Argh.. sorry, I should have been more specific.  A lot of servers, when you first logon, send a text description of the server.  I've seen it refered to the Logon message or the Welcome Message.  When I said "Screen" I was refering to that....

I avoid MFC's CInterenet features as far as possible. Instead I use the Wininet.dll to attack my FTP related problems. You may also look into the same and see if it helps you.

Yeah, that's what I was afraid of.  I've actually written a fair amount of TCP/IP stuff (Some for IBM, some POP3, SMTP, and NNTP stuff... I was WISHING that M$ did it right and I could just focus on writting my program and not yet another protocal class.

Oh well, par for course, eh? :)

Thanks.
