I am not totally sure what you are talking about (which one is your ftp server.) From the command prompt in XP (DOS emulation mode) just type ftp and then your ftp server name. That should connect you from the XP system to the ftp server. Your ftp server will probably promt for a user name and password. Then use standard FTP commands such as: get, put, cd, dir, bin, ascii, etc.

I don't know how I'd do this, but it occurs to me that Microshaft Bill spent a LOT of time and money so nobody HAD to use a Command prompt to do ANYTHING.

By the way it IS a command prompt, not DOS

Hi HaroldW,

Well said.


If at first you don't succeed, you're about average.

But why use a command prompt when Internet Explorer will serve as a perfectly acceptable FTP client.

Justin,

As M2 quite rightly pointed out, not so easy to script as a command prompt.

Nor is it obvious how you'd do something like mput with IE.
