This page shows all known information about tag protocol::ftp.
File Transfer Protocol, a protocol for exchanging and manipulation files over
networks and extensively used on the Internet.
The communication between FTP servers and clients uses two channels, the
control and the data channel. While FTP was originally used with
authentication only, most FTP servers on the Internet provide anonymous,
passwordless access. Since FTP does not support encryption, sensitive data
transfer is carried out over SFTP today.
