I want to transfer data from fedora 3 machine to windows machine using ftp.

I tried ...............

C:\>ftp 172.16.1.2
Connected to 172.16.1.2.
220 pspl380.pragatisoftware.com FTP server (Version 5.60) ready.
User (172.16.1.2 : ( none)): root
530 Must perform authentication before identifying USER.
Login failed.

gives me above error.

How can I connect to fedora machine using ftp.

Looks like you're running gssftpd, which requires authentication beyond username/password. If you have admin right on the Fedora box (and it looks like you do, since you're trying to log in as root) then check out this page:

I made changes as per your suggestion and tried as shown below


C:\>ftp 172.16.1.2
Connected to 172.16.1.2.
220 pspl380.pragatisoftware.com FTP server (Version 5.60) ready.
User (172.16.1.2: (none)): root
331 Password required for root.
Password:
Connection closed by remote host.

This is the output I am getting. What should I do now?

Minal,
Do you know the root password? If not, you'll need to ftp as your user id.

Minal,
There is a different command for multiple files. Are you using "mput" rather than "put" when trying to copy the directory remotely?
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
