FTP is just a program (executable). A program can be invoked from the DOS command line. Feed in the IP address as a parameter.
The system you are signing on to should have the security stuff.

Hi cindy,
Thanks , I was considering other options of directly connecting to server and FTPing...since i will have to make it as an applet on the server.

Actually Jeff Holmes has started a nice FtpClient using sockets, here http://www.javaranch.com/ubb/Forum38/HTML/000066.html
Hope this helps
