How Do I Use FTP Commands?

After you use FTP to connect to Exabytes FTP server via command line, you can manage your files using standard FTP commands. Here are the basic commands you'll need:

bin   changes the transfer mode to binary (used for transferring graphics, .zip files, etc.)
chdir <directory name> changes our directory
dir   lists all of the files in your directory
get <filename> transfers files from the remote FTP host to your local hard drive
mget <filename> transfers multiple files (using wild cards) from the remote FTP host to your local hard drive
mkdir <directory name> creates a directory
mput <filename> transfers multiple files (using wild cards) from your local hard drive to the remote FTP host
put <filename> transfers files from your local hard drive to the remote FTP host
prompt   toggles confirmation prompts when using mput and mget commands
pwd   displays the current directory on the FTP server
quit   exits the FTP client
rmdir <directory name> removes a directory
?   lists various commands
? <command> lists simple help for that <command>
