Automate your FTP sessions

FTP client that's included in Windows 95 and Windows NT 4.x will let you run a list of command automatically once you connect to a specified FTP server.

For example, let's say that you want to log on to ftp.microsoft.com FTP server, login anonymously, download dirmap.txt and quit.

  • Create a text file called ftpcmnds (for example) and include following lines in it:

    open ftp.microsoft.com
    get dirmap.txt

  • Go to the "Command Prompt" (or "DOS Prompt") and run the following command:

    ftp -s:ftpcmnds
