What does my FTP number mean?

Simply put, FTP is the average number of watts that a rider can sustain in an hour, and acts as a current measure of fitness. Ideally, it refers to a steady effort, not the up-and-down levels you might see looking at your power from a hilly ride or cyclocross race.

What is the FTP protocol?

The protocol is a way to communicate between computers on a TCP/IP network, the internet. It’s used by users who have access to transfer and receive files in the FTP server (also known as FTP host/site). The access control is essential to prevent an unauthorized person from getting those files.

How does the FTP command authenticate with the FTPd daemon?

The ftp command will use the AUTH and ADAT commands to authenticate with the ftpd daemon. If both support Kerberos authentication, then they will use the local users DCE credentials to authenticate the user on the remote system. If this fails and Standard authentication is configured on both systems, the process described above will be used.

How do I establish an FTP connection?

There are three approaches on how to establish an FTP connection. A very simple method is using a command line FTP, such as using Command prompt for Windows or Terminal in Mac/Linux. Developers still use it today for transferring files using FTP. A user also can use a web browser to communicate to the FTP server.

What happens when a server-FTP request is initiated by another process?

The requested action is being initiated; expect another reply before proceeding with a new command. (The user-process sending another command before the completion reply would be in violation of protocol; but server-FTP processes should queue any commands that arrive while a preceding command is in progress.)
