FTP – Windows CMD Command

File Transfer Protocol. (Not Secure, for Secure FTP utilities see the links page.)

Using the Windows GUI for FTP

Windows Explorer also has a built-in FTP client.
Type in the address bar:
ftp://username@ftpserver.address.com
you will be prompted for the password.

You can also do
ftp://username:password@ftpserver.address.com

This is not recommended as anyone can read the password.

Or Start | Computer | Right click – Add a network Location | Custom – enter the name of the FTP site

Secure FTP

Standard FTP does not encrypt passwords – they are sent across the network in plain text. A more secure method is to use secureFTP (SFTP) or SecureCopy (SCP) Freeware clients are available e.g. WinSCP
