Many of you might be too young to remember, but using FTP was a common way to download files back in the 90s. FTP servers were data sources, and you could download files with an FTP client application. Yes, the FTP protocol is “ancient”, but it is still around. Do you want to learn more about it?
What is FTP?
FTP (File Transfer Protocol) is one of the standard communication protocols that have the purpose of transferring files from a server (FTP server) to a client (FTP client). As you can see, it uses a client-server model of communication. The client needs permission to establish a connection. That could be a login (user name and password), or the FTP server could be public and open for everybody without authentication.
