What is in ProFtp
ProFtp is an integrated and powerful 32-bit software tool consisting of the following functional parts:
Telnet virtual terminal emulator
Telnet is a communications and terminal emulation program for logging into remote machine and executing commands in a remote machine. It allows you to connect to and communicate with hosts that support the Telnet protocol and run a Telnet service over an insecure channel.
While you are using Telnet, you can:
- Initiate and control remote login sessions in the Telnet mode
- Set some options for particular implementations of Telnet
- Change fonts of text displayed in the Telnet window
- Select a terminal emulation mode in the Telnet session.
The Telnet program can emulate XTERM, AT386, ANSI, VT52, VT100, VT125, VT220 and VT240 terminals for character-mode applications. Advanced users can edit the terminal capabilities description file to suit to the special environment.
By using the Keyboard Mapping option (i.e. keymap editor invoking), you can load, change (re-define keys and create a new keyboard layout), and save any keyboard definition file.
The FTP Program
The FTP program is a client implementation (i.e. a user interface) of ARPANET standard File Transfer Protocol. FTP allows you to transfer both text and binary files and directories between your PC and remote computers running the server implementation of File Transfer Protocol (on multiple server platforms) over the Internet and intranets.
By using the FTP program, you can:
- Set up parameters and modes for operations
- Navigate through directory structures on your PC or remote FTP servers
- Make/Remove a local/remote directory
- Select directories and files in a local/remote directory
- Copy/Rename/Delete selected local/remote files and directories
- Transfer selected files and directories between two remote FTP servers
- View a local/remote file (in Notepad)
- Append a file from your PC to a file on a remote FTP server
- Execute FTP commands on a remote FTP server.
FTP operations may be done either by direct insecure access to a remote host or through
one of the established SSH1/SSH2 protocol connections as well. You can access resources
you need from behind your corporate firewalls. Also, FTP supports the SFTP mode.
While you are connected, you can perform a number of tasks (commands) on the remote
computer (FTP server) by using its various options.
The TFTP program
The TFTP program is a client implementation (i.e. a user interface) of DARPA standard Trivial File Transfer Protocol. TFTP allows you to transfer both text and binary files between your PC and a remote computer running the server implementation of Trivial File Transfer Protocol.
LPR - Remote Printing Program
LPR is a client implementation program that allows you to access printers attached to remote computers on your TCP/IP-network. The computers must support the Berkeley Line Printer protocol.
While using LPR, you can:
- Enter data required to connect to a remote computer and to choose a target printer
- Specify print job options (a number of copies, titles and banner pages, a file type)
- Print one or more files from your PC on the remote printer
- View print jobs in the queue, remove jobs from the queue.
LPD - Network Print Server
LPD is a Network Print Server (daemon) that provides access to your local (attached to your PC) and Microsoft-network-accessible printers from remote computers across TCP/IP network. The remote computers must use the print program that supports the Berkeley Line Printer protocol (lpr client).
While using LPD, you can:
- Change the printer list and printer parameters (add/remove a network printer, edit settings of network printers)
- Enable or disable printing files from remote computers
- Specify the list of users who can print files on your networked printers.
LPD provides German and/or French messages and text labels under the corresponding national version of MS Windows.
The Ping program
You can test that the TCP/IP transport is installed and configured correctly
by using the Ping utility.
Ping can help you isolate network hardware problems and incompatible configurations
by allowing you to verify a physical connection to a remote host.
To ping remote hosts, you can select the standard MS Windows ICMP interface protocol
or the TCP protocol.
You can choose the IPv4 mode or the IPv6 mode for pinging remote hosts
(for both the ICMP and TCP protocols).
Ping can automatically choose the protocol (ICMP or TCP) and the mode (IPv4 or IPv6)
for pinging remote hosts.
You can use the '*' wild card symbol in the IP address to scan
up to 256 hosts in your LAN to see at once which hosts are alive.
