FTP working FTP (File Transfer Protocol) is a high-level (application layer) protocol is an interface for any user of the internet to transfer files. The user requests the FTP to either retrieve from or upload a file to a remote server. FTP presents the user with a prompt and allows entering of various commands for accessing and downloading files that are physically exist on a remote computer. After invoking an FTP application, the user identifies a remote computer and instructs FTP to establish a connection with it. FTP contacts the remote computer using TCP/IP software. Once the connection is established, the user can choose to download a file from the remote computer, or an send file to be stored on the remote computer.

FTP uses two connections between a client and a server. One connection is used for the actual file’s data transfer and the other is used for control information (commands and responses). FTP uses two well-known TCP ports: port 21 is used for the control connection and port 20 is used for the data connection.
