    DOS FTP Client needed...

    Hello,

    I would like to know where can I find a DOS FTP Client.

    Note: I do not want to use the one which comes with Windows since it doesn't support connecting to FTPs installed on a port different than the default FTP port (21).

    Moreover, I do not want any visual FTP client, only DOS interface is accepted.

    Thanks as usual, guys.
    Israeli User.

    Might be of use - but it's a bit flaky

    Hi, I couldn't find there an EXE file. I think I saw there some source code in C, but anyway I do not have a C compiler.

    Can you direct me to an EXE file? Thanks.

    It's the 'binary distribution' link (zip file)

    This stuff requires some work to set up - It's not as simple as plug & go, but I hold together a retail systems overnight comms with it.

    Hi,

    Thanks but I get an "Error Initializing Network" message.

    What's now?

    Theres a DOS port of wget if your interested. You can find it at http://www.rahul.net/dkaufman/.

    Wget is a pretty powerful client, and I think you'll find it useful. Just type in the port # as you would in your browser's URL field (ie. www.google.com:8080).

    'Nuff said. There's a lot of documentation out there on it, so I hope that's helped.

    Cheers,

    Many will ask, \"Where do you want to go today?\" because they\'re still scratching for ideas.

    With *NIX, there\'s already a way. The sum of us just need roadmaps to get there.

    If you are not going to use wget and continue with the NCSA stuff you will need to download the packet drivers (Also available from the site, read the docs, understand what's going on and install them.)

    You'll need static IPs IIRC correcty as well, since these need to be configured in the confg.tel file

    As I said, this isn't simple, you'll need to do some research & understand how this hangs together.
