Hi I am trying to erite a simple FTP server in java. I will use a aweb browser as a FTP client. I am still not sure how to start writing the server code. Can anyone send me link of steps to code or a code is also good. Please help Thanks
I'm sure you're aware that there are FTP servers written in Java out there (like this one), so I'm assuming this is a coding exercise?
If so, you might want to read up on socket communication in Java. The Sun Java Tutorial has a chapter on that, which also includes a simple socket client/server pair. That might be a good starting point, and of course the FTP RFC.
Well, the FTP RFC specifies what requests an FTP client can send, and how an FTP server should respond to them. If you want to call it an "FTP" client/server, then the RFC is what you need to implement (possibly by leaving out a lot of the more advanced features).
