The File Transfer Protocol allows client computers to work with files stored on remote servers. A computer running an FTP client application connects to the server computer and provides account (user) name and the password. If access to the specified user account is granted, the client application sends protocol commands to the FTP server. These protocol commands tell the server to list all files in the current directory, to change the current directory, to retrieve, upload, rename, and remove files stored on the FTP server.
