Dear experts

I have two machines , Machine A and Machine B. From Machine A , I have to transfer a file in a directory  of Machine B.
I am using FTP Server in machine B. Any ideas  how I can do that?

Do i need to use Java or can i use some FTP commands to get the job done?


Thanks
J

That depends on a lot of things. Are the machines on the same network? If they are, you don't necessarily need FTP

Just copy them directly then


File remote = new File("\\\\servername\\sharename\\filename");

Write in the normal way

For simply putting a file you don't need a special API. You can use


       URL ftp = new URL("ftp://username:password@69.194.83.97/asdsa.txt");
       URLConnection conn = ftp.openConnection();
       conn.setDoOutput(true);
       PrintWriter out = new PrintWriter(conn.getOutputStream());
       out.println("How's that");
       out.println("krupini?");
       out.close();
