I need to know the Universal Resource Identifier for my UNIX and Windows boxes. Let's say my UNIX box is called abcUNIX and my Windows box is called abcWindows. What would the URI be?

Would it be, for UNIX?
ftp://abcUNIX/homedir

Would it be for Window?
ftp://abcWindows/rootdir

Thanks.

In fact, URI means:
Short for Uniform Resource Identifier, the generic term for all types of names and addresses that refer to objects on the World Wide Web. A URL is one kind of URI

Connected to abcW
220 Microsoft FTP Service
500 'AUTH GSSAPI': command not understood
500 'AUTH KERBEROS_V4': command not understood
KERBEROS_V4 rejected as an authentication type
Name (abcW:myid):

It prompts me for name and password. When I put in the name and the password, it says log in failed. However, when I use the name and password using Remote Desktop Connection, I can log in without any problems.
also, what should the correct URI be?

Is it part of a domain? If so you need to use DomainName\UserName.

if you want to use server name to access to you FTP server, you need to make sure
your ftp servers are defined in the DNS, otherwise you have to use IP instead of
hostname.

If you need to login to do FTP use the web broswer, you do:
ftp://loginname:password@ftpserver/url-path

or
ftp://loginname:password@xx.xxx.x.x/url-path

why not use FTP client (GUI) to do the job, there are plenty of free FTP clients
on the web for download.

eg:
http://www.coreftp.com/

I am trying to do an FTP from UNIX box to a Windows box. I am aware of the free utilities but I need to do it through Datastage and that is why I was looking for s solution. I got the IP address of the Windows box. I tried:

ftp://10.22.34.54  (this is a fake ip address)

Doesn't work!

You need to provide correct credentials (username and password), for obvious reason. This has nothing to do with URL/URI.
