Are you trying to implement FTP as defined by the RFC's? or just a file transfer protocol that you have to design?
if you mean your own hand invented protocol, just send a 'command' message the declares the directory and file name, preferably with relative addressing. Use the standard Java API to set the working directory, and check to see if the file exists. (you could just clobber it, but that is bad form.)
If it doesn't exist, create it.
Then transfer the data bytes over the socket and close the file when the socket is closed.

hi, I am not defining own protocol, just i want to transfer a file from one machine to another machine using FTP. If you send me the code that would be great.
