Hi, i am wondering how i would connect to an ftp, and then be able to do everything you can do on an ftp, i.e. upload, download, rename, etc. I have found a way to do it using microsoft foundation classes, but i would like to learn how to do it without them. Any help?

It's a bit daunting at first, skim through it a couple times and find the important commands.

You can try some of them out using telnet. Go to a command prompt and type telnet ftp.someserver.com 21. Then USER username, PASS password, etc.

(That works for HTTP too btw... telnet www.gamedev.net 80 then type GET /)
