I'm using a frame to display a button which when clicked should
ask for downloading a file from a server on the client side.

My code looks like this---
try
{
// To open socket.
Socket clientsocket =new Socket("192.168.0.108",21);
DataOutputStream outbound =new DataOutputStream(clientsocket.getOutputStream());
BufferedReader inbound =new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(clientsocket.getInputStream()));
outbound.writeBytes("GET /CyberSync_2000.exe /FTP\r\n\r\n");
System.out.println("ftp reguest sent.....to sever");

---but it is not giving the desired results.
can someone help?

thanks in advance.

How exactly is it not working? Does the site require a login with username and password? Can you be more specific about your problem?

Hi sunil
You say that java.net.exception is displayed, but there is NO class named java.net.exception or java.net.Exception in the java.net package.
The only exceptions in java.net package are:-
BindException, ConnectException, MalformedURLException, NoRouteToHostException, ProtocolException, SocketException, UnknownHostException, UnknownServiceException
So which exactly is the exception thrown? Solving the problem without specific information is difficult.
Also, if your ftp server-site requires a username, password, then the first command that should be sent over the socket is a login command supplying the username and password. That may be the reason why GET causes connection refused message.
You can also use URL or URLConnection class to download from the ftp site. The code is much simpler:-
URL url=new URL(protocol:resource);
InputStream uin=url.openStream();
...
If the site requires username and password then do as follows:-
URL url=new URL("ftp://username :password@ftp.yourserver.com/pub/file.txt");
