4. FILE TRANSFER FUNCTIONS

The communication channel from the user-PI to the server-PI is established as a TCP connection from the user to the standard server port. The user protocol interpreter is responsible for sending FTP commands and interpreting the replies received; the server-PI interprets commands, sends replies and directs its DTP to set up the data connection and transfer the data. If the second party to the data transfer (the passive transfer process) is the user-DTP, then it is governed through the internal protocol of the user-FTP host; if it is a second server-DTP, then it is governed by its PI on command from the user-PI. The FTP replies are discussed in the next section. In the description of a few of the commands in this section, it is helpful to be explicit about the possible replies.
