nice link chrism01.

@cgirishaanekal:

if you just want to use the normal ftp command in linux.

open terminal window.

type:
Quote:
ftp ip.address.u.want.to.connect
if username and password is required, enter the required details.

if authentication is successful,it should display UserName is logged in.

once inside the ftp window you can use ? mark for additional commands.

you can use
Quote:
dir
command to read files.

to download the file that you want type:
Quote:
get file_that_i.want
the file should be downloaded in your current directory where you run the ftp.

hope it helps. Good luck!
