Using FTP Server to Transfer Files

This section provides a tutorial example on how to set up FTP server and using FTP commands to transfer files over a crossover cable network.

Now I have my two computers connected as a network, I can use FTP to send to receive files from each other:

1. On the laptop, use IIS (Internet Information Service) to set up a FTP server. See the "FTP Server and Client" chapter in this book for detailed information on how to set up a FTP server.

2. Copy files to be shared with the desktop to the c:\inetpub\ftproot directory.

3. On the desktop, run the ftp client in a command window:

>ftp 192.168.0.1
Connected to localhost.
220 Microsoft FTP Service
User (192.168.0.1:(none)): herong
331 Password required for herong.
Password: ********
230 User herong logged in.
ftp> quit
221

Cool. I can transfer files now using FTP commands.

Of course, I can use any other Internet tools on my crossover cable network now.
