I was wondering how I would get a FTP server for free that I could connect to with a program that I'm writing. My program is going to be like a file sharing program, but I have no clue how to use FTPs, so I also have another question: would WinSock work with FTP?

Here's some more details: I'm using VB6 to write this so that many people across the world may shar files. I don't think that Filezilla is what I want.

There several freeware FTP server packages. You can check Snapfile.com for one. Yes Winsock will work with FTP. FTP, like HTTP, is a protocol that works on top of TCP/IP.
