FTP Clients For Windows 8 And Its Uses.


FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol. It is a standard internet protocol for sending files between computers over the internet using TCP/IP connections. It is often used to upload or download files from web servers. It is a client-server protocol that depends on two communication channels between client and server: a data channel for transmitting or sending file content and a command channel for controlling or handling the conversation.

In an FTP session, it is the client who initiates the conversation with the server by requesting to download a file. With FTP, a client can download, upload, rename, delete, move, and copy files from a server.

Though the majority of FTP servers require users to log in before the contents be made available to them, there are some FTP servers that make their content available without logging in and they are known as anonymous FTP. FTP sessions work or function in two modes: either active or passive.

In active mode, the server starts a data connection back to the client and starts transferring or sending data after a client starts a session using a command channel request. In passive mode, it is the server that uses the command channel to send the client the information it needs to open a data channel.
