    Unix ftp

    I wanted to get an idea about UNIX file transfer protocols. It would be of great help if you could say about mput in UNIX.

    mput is used to copy multiple or many files from the local machine to the remote machine. It is done by using the following syntax namely
    ftp> mput filenames

    Here each time the command prompt or in other words the user is prompted with yes or no answer before the process of transferring of each file takes place.

    Re: Unix ftp

    To copy many files from local machine to remote machine we use mput.
    mput local-files
    Expand wild cards in the list of local files given as arguments and do a put for each file in the resulting list.
    There is another command mput* which only copy the files in the current folder, not recursive.Most browsers do not support uploading to ftp.
