It is sometimes confused with SSH file transfer protocol, a secured file transfer protocol, also abbreviated as SFTP.
It runs through port 115, and often receives the initialism of SFTP. It has a command set of 11 commands and support three types of data transmission: ASCII, BINARY and CONTINUOUS. For systems which have "WORD SIZE" which are multiples of 8 bits, the implementation of BINARY and CONTINUOUS is the same.
The protocol supports the following:
- User id based login (User-id/Password combination)
- Hierarchical folders
- File Management (Rename, Delete, Upload, Download, Download with overwrite, Download with append)
