 How to program a simple ftp client

Erm, i'm trying to make a small client program in
visual c/c++ or in asm that can connect to ftp
sites and perform simple operation tasks like
sending and retriving files.

However, i'm relatively new in this field and not
sure on where to start, whether is it tcp/ip or
winsocks. Hopes someone would kindly give some
advice or anywhere on the web that i could do some
reading up.

Thanks.

I found this link to be quite informative.

http://www.hoshi.ngenie.com/ctutorial/ctutorial4.html

Also get RFC959 from an online RFC archive.

Have fun!

FTP is a simple TCP based-protocol. C++ does not specify how to do
networking but many operating systems use Berkeley sockets (alias
"Winsock" on Windows). All you need is "socket",  plus either "connect"
in the client, or "bind", "listen" and "accept" in the server. Read
"UNIX Network Programming" by W. Richard Stevens (Prentice Hall).

May i just say one thing...

Making a FTP program in pure asm is very ambitious, use a higher level
language like c++ as you said is more effective..
