File Transfer Protocol


Protocol client-server, which allows you to transfer files to and from the server via TCP / IP network.

FTP is a 8-bit protocol and therefore requires no special encoding data to in the form of a 7-bit, as it is in the case of e-mail. FTP server, depending on configuration, can allow access to its contents without a password. Instead, an e-mail address should be given. Often, however, this is not adhered to precisely because of the anonymous nature of the service. Most of the FTP server logs, however, any combination of IP and the client.
