Question Uploading and Downloading during a telnet session

Hi there,
I'm trying to download files from a server and also upload new files to the same server during a telnet session. How do I go about getting certain files (.gif) from the server onto my local drive and vice versa? Can anyone help me? Thank you so much!

Wouldn't it be easier to ftp to the server from your machine and then issue the relevant download upload commands? Smilie

If you want to use ftp from a console the the command line options to download and upload files are:

download:

"recv" download single files at a time

"mget" download multiple files, allows use of asterisk in file names

upload:

"put" upload single files at a time

"mput" upload multiple files, also allows asterisk in file names

Note: you may need to change transfer modes (Binary or ASCII) depending on file types.
