Of Transfering Important Files
Thursday, January 03, 2008
After his short stint as a virus support engineer, my brother now works as a network security engineer where majority of his clients are banks and some multi-national company operating within Laguna and EPZA (Cavite). Sometimes, we would bring home some "gadgets" (what you it is really called) and he would explain to me how it is related to FTP. Hmmmm, I can reformat/reinstall harddrive/OS and troubleshoot some PC problems but I simply don't understand what FTP is (though I have already read about it as I look for some options of transferring my blogger posts to my own domain). FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol. As the name suggests, FTP is used to transfer files between computers on a network, such as the internet. You can use FTP to exchange files between computer accounts, to transfer files between an account and a desktop computer, or to access software archives on the Internet. Keep in mind, however, that many FTP sites are heavily used and require several attempts before connecting. Brother explained to me further that having an SFTP Server Unlike standard FTP, it encrypts both commands and data, preventing passwords and sensitive information from being transmitted in the clear over the network. It is functionally similar to FTP, but because it uses a different protocol, you can't use a standard FTP client to talk to an SFTP server, nor can you connect to an FTP server with a client that supports only SFTP. Hmmm... sounds interesting huh. Dindo, one of our network and telecoms engineer has talked about this but I just didn't pay attention during that time because I find it too geek. But now that I am regaining my passion for technology, I am trying to learn more about FTP and SFTP.
