  • File Transfer Protocol
    • Protocol
      • The set of rules controlling communication between devices
    • Email
      • Files can be sent as an attachment on an email
      • Larger files take longer to send
    • How does FTP work?
      • The file being sent is subdivided into packets
      • Once each package is recieved, it is checked for errors
        • Errors may make the file unreadable
      • Once the package has been checked, a confirmation message will be sent to the sender which indicates the next packet to be sent
      • If there was an error with the packet, it is resent and checked again
      • This is protocol for sending files.
    • What is FTP frequently used for?
      • Transferring music files on the internet
        • E.g. When purchasing music from iTunes
      • Downloading a user manual from a website
      • Uploading files to web servers
        • Usually from home/company computers so the files can be accessed from a website
