Using the Internet Transfer Control: Part 3
Just think back to the last time that you used an FTP program. What is the first thing it does after connecting? Show a list of all the directories and files in the default directory. This can be done using a DIR command and some clever stuff in the Inet's StateChanged event.
Here are some of the commands that you will be using when you FTP into a server:
CD - Change directory
CDUP - Change to the parent directory. The same as "CD .."
DELETE - Deltes a file
DIR - Retrieves the current directory listing
GET - Retrieves a file
MKDIR - Makes a new directory
PUT - Uploads a file
PWD - Sends a password
QUIT - Ends an FTP session
RECV - The same as GET
RENAME - Renames a file
RMDIR - Deletes a directory
SEND - Same as PUT
SIZE - Retrieves the size of a file
This is all very well and true, but how do I actually connect and get the contents of the root directory? Lets find out.
