Using FTP Server to Transfer Files
This section provides a tutorial example on how to set up FTP server and using FTP commands to transfer files over a crossover cable network.
Now I have my two computers connected as a network, I can use FTP to send to receive files from each other:
1. On the laptop, use IIS (Internet Information Service) to set up a FTP server. See the "FTP Server and Client" chapter in this book for detailed information on how to set up a FTP server.
2. Copy files to be shared with the desktop to the c:\inetpub\ftproot directory.
3. On the desktop, run the ftp client in a command window:
>ftp 192.168.0.1 Connected to localhost. 220 Microsoft FTP Service User (192.168.0.1:(none)): herong 331 Password required for herong. Password: ******** 230 User herong logged in. ftp> quit 221
Cool. I can transfer files now using FTP commands.
Of course, I can use any other Internet tools on my crossover cable network now.
