The File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is a protocol designed for file transfers. FTP utilizes reliable Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) services to perform its file transfer function. Because of this, FTP is a highly reliable file transfer protocol. FTP is also high-performance. The actual FTP file transfer is performed on a dedicated FTP connection. NetX™ FTP is specific to IPv4. NetX Duo™ FTP accommodates both IPv4 and IPv6 networks. IPv6 does not directly change the FTP protocol, although some changes in the original NetX FTP API are necessary to accommodate IPv6 and will be described in this document.
The module supports the following features:
- NetX is IPv4 specific
- NetX Duo supports both IPv4 and IPv6 networks
- Works with FileX® file system
- No limit to file name size; uses NULL terminated ASCII strings
- Supports TCP port 21 to field client requests
- Provide high-Level APIs for creating, starting, stopping and deleting service
- NetX FTP and NetX Duo FTP are compliant with RFC 959, RFC 2428 and related RFCs.
The module guide is targeted for SSP 1.2.0 and above and the SK-S7G2 Kit.
