Warning FTP functionality has been deprecated and will shortly be removed. You should not make use of the ftp object and its methods in new applications, and existing applications should be updated to use an alternative file-transfer mechanism, such as HTTP.

The ftp object provides methods that make use of the File Transfer Protocol (defined by the RFC959 specification) to create outbound FTP requests.

The ftp object is instantiated automatically.

Member Entities

The ftp object has the following member methods:

  • ftp.get()Creates a new FTP download request object
  • ftp.put()Creates a new FTP upload request object
