I can easily test the scenario when client wants to upload and download the files from the server.
What I want is suppose there is a GUI on server side and executing command on GUI , the server automatically sends the file to the client side and record the download or upload logs .
I don't want client to initiate the transaction.
is this is possible ?
Please share your thoughts.
Thanks and regards,
Because of the nature of TCP (the protocol on top of which ftp runs), the client side either has to function as a server to accept incoming connections, or the client has to establish an initial connection to the server. In the latter case, I don't know of any standard ftp clients that will allow the server to initiate a transfer, or even if ftp supports this.
