Hey guys, I was browsing trough the web, looking for a tutorial or library on how to prgramm an ftp tool in c++. Unfortunatly I didnt find anything regarding how to establish a ftp connection, upload/download data etc. Does anyone of you have a nice link where I can find the answers to my questions? Thx in advance regards Woltan

Hi acraig,
I would rather not use MFC plus I was looking for a tutorial. But your link gave me the idea of maybe trying to go ftp without a tutorial, just using the reference guide provided by msdn.
Still, if anyone knows where I can find a tutorial, i'd very much apreciate a link
thx woltan

I don't know of a tutorial, but have you tried RFC 959? If you know how to create a TCP connection and send/receive data, it's not that hard.

Note that FTP is a very old and crufty protocol. You probably want to support only passive mode, as that's much more reliable through NAT firewalls and residential gateways.
