First, FTP (File Transfer Protocol)

The full name of FTP is File Transfer Protocol. Used for bidirectional transfer of control files on the Internet. At the same time, it is also an application. There are different FTP applications based on different operating systems, and all of these applications follow the same protocol to transfer files. In the use of FTP, users often encounter two concepts: "Download" and "Upload".

A "download" file is a copy of a file from a remote host to its own computer; an "upload" file is a copy of the file from its own computer to a remote host. In the Internet language, users can upload (download) files to (from) a remote host through a client program. In the TCP/IP protocol, the FTP standard command TCP port number is 21, and the port mode data port is 20. The FTP task is to transfer files from one computer to another without being restricted by the operating system.
