FTP Command


Hello. I log in into my server by telnet. But sometimes I want to upload files from my computer to my server. My question is is there a command that i can use to send files from my computer to my server using telnet?
Thanks in Adbance

Well, there's the ftp command, or, as secure
replacments for both telnet & ftp, ssh and scp


Read the respective man-pages

Nope and telnet is insecure. You should look into setting up ssh and then you can actually use scp which is a secure way to send or upload files to your server, etc.
Or simply setup FTP on your server.

Usually its something like this:

scp <user>@<hostname or IP> [ file-to-copy-over ]

But like Tinkster said, read the man pages for more options, etc.
