ftp from winxp to Sun system

By lcw ·
I tried to send some zip files using FTP from my WinXP to Sun Solaris OS but after the Sun Solaris received the zip files it just produce error messages and unable to unzip the file.I tried to use the CD thru the cdrom to make a direct transfer of those files and it was able to unzip and run the program succesfully.Is there any specified command need to put in on the FTP inorder to make it run on Sun Solaris.

ftp from winxp to Sun system

The most likely cause of your error is the transfer is using binary mode instead of ascii. If your using a cmd promp ftp, then type ascii to change the mode or bin to change it to binary.
