In a DOS prompt, I would like to ftp ASCII get a file from a Linux machine. The file was created in vi, just a normal text file.
in DOS prompt:
200> Switching to ASCII mode.
ftp> get NLSO.txt
200 PORT command successful. Consider using PASV.
150 Opening BINARY mode data connection for NLSO.txt (679 bytes).
226 Transfer complete.
ftp: 679 bytes received in 0.02Seconds 33.95Kbytes/sec.
No matter what files on the Linux directory I get, it always switches back to BINARY mode, which creates a single, very long line of text if open in Notepad. How can I force the transfer in ASCII?
