FTP

File Transfer Protocol



FTP is a long-time method of transfering files over the Internet from one computer to another. FTP programs include WS_FTP for Windows and Fetch for Mac.

It should be noted that FTP (and Telnet) have fallen from favor due to serious security issues. However, there now is a secure form of FTP (and Telnet), called SSH or Secure Shell, in which encrypted connections are used.
