passive and active transfers in FTP.

Post by RyanFox » Mon Nov 20, 2017 11:43 am

Hi,

Does the concept of passive and active transfers in FTP applies to mainframes? Could you please guide when do we go for passive transfer and when do we go for active transfer? Link to any manual describing this with an example would be great too.

I wonder why soo many people keep confusing HARDWARE and SOFTWARE
what does an implementation have to do with the hardware it is running on ? :twisted:

here is a link to a pretty good explanation of active vs. passive FTP
http://slacksite.com/other/ftp.html

and here is the link to the FTP RFC document
http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc959.html


cheers

so that I am sure that the information requested can be reached with a very small effort 8-)
