HELP ME WITH TELNET AND FTP COMMANDS

Start|Run|Telent starts Telnet. Telnet has a Help file.
Start|Run|FTP starts FTP (Runs in DOS box). Type 'HELP' at the FTP prompt. This will give you a list of commands. Type 'HELP command' for help on specific command.
I would suggest downloadingWS_FTPLE (download.com) for an FTP program. Not sure why you would use the DOS version.
Why are you using Telnet? There are easier terminal software programs out there.

There are two ways to start telnet. The first is Start->Run. In the run box type: telnet XXX, where XXX is the IP address or name of the machine you are telneting to (ex: techrepublic.com). The other way is to go into DOS and type: telnet XXX

Once you are in telnet, you type the commands for the computer at the other end. One additional feature that is helpful creates a file containing everything done in your Telnet session. Just click Preferences->Start Logging when you want to start and Preferences->Stop Logging when you want to stop.


For FTP, go into DOS. Use "cd" to change to the directory the files will be in on your computer. Type: ftp XXX, where XXX is the IP address or name of the machine you are telneting to.

After entering your username and password, if applicable, you are ready to use the FTP commands. If you are transferring a text file, type "ascii". Use "cd" to change to the directory containing the files on the remote machine. Then type "get XXX" toretrieve a file and "put XXX" to place a file on the remote machine. TYpe "quit" to stop using FTP.

bin - switch from ascii to binary file transfer mode (e.g. just type bin)
hash - turns on # mark when files are transferring
get - transfer a file from a server to your pc

mget - multiple file get (e.g. mget *.txt)
mput - multiple file put (e.g. mput *.txt)

cd - change your remote directory (lcd /usr/raj)
close - close ftp session
