The largest volume of data exchange in the Internet today is due to file transfer. We will discuss a very popular involved in file transfer i.e. File Transfer Protocol (FTP).
File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is the standard mechanism provided by TCP/IP for copying a file from one computer/host to another. It establishes two TCP connections between the hosts. One connection is used for data transfer, the other for control information (commands and responses). The well-known port 21 is used for the control connection and the well-known port 20 for the data connection. The control connection remains connected during the entire interactive FTP session. The data connection is opened and then closed for each file transferred. It opens each time commands that involve transferring files are used, and it closes when the file is transferred.
