Hi there,

could you please tell me how I can use ftp from a telnet shell?
I type in the command "ftp" and then "open hostname" I replace hostname with the name of the host.
It says connected and then nothing happens.
What else am I meant to do?

Thanks

It should ask you the user name and passwd after the connect
command. Otherwise you can give user USER_NAME command, USER_NAME
should by replaced by actual user name. pass is command for
giving the password.
For other commands just type help on ftp prompt.

In case of troble you may want to check if ftpd is up and
runing on the remote machine. Mostly it will be configured
to activated from inetd.

BTW, what are the OS of your machines and what version of
FTP you are using.

Hi there..

I actually worked it out myself afterwards but you can have the points anyway.

BTW, do you know anything about FTP and CHROOT.
If you do, could you please take a look at my other question in the UNIX area.

Thanks.
