Arbitary FTP Command and INternetConnect()

Posted on 1998-10-21

Is there a way to execute an arbitrary FTP command on a HINTERNET handle opened to an FTP server using InternetConnect()?  I know there is an FTPCommand() function, but the MSDN library says this function is available only for WinCE platform? Does anyone know of a way to just send an arbitrary command? (eg: quote, user, close, etc. )

Thanks,

Adam

No I had not seen that particular web page, but it contains all of the same information as the MSDN CD.  What I need to be able to do is send an ARBRITRARY command to the server. I am also using the functions for creating directories and such, but the application I am writing needs to do some other things (like changing password) which CAN be done from a  script file (processed by ftp -s) but for which no WinInet functions exist.

You can't.  WININET.DLL does not support it.  Maybe, in a future update it will, but for now it's not there.  Since the connection isn't available to you (as it's abstracted by the DLL), there's no workaround.
