Corrupted files from Windows to Unix Sco

I downloaded some applications from CD on a windows2000 PC to a Unix Sco machine using the WS-FTP program.

When I tried to run the applications on the Unix machines I got an error. The files must have been corrupted in the process of transferring files from a Windows 2000 to a Unix Sco machine.

How can I fix this up ?

Another question :
Does Unix have a specific file system as Windows has FAT,
FAT 32,NTFS ?

Thanks.

Normally, as long as you upload the files after setting the type to binary (see the help on binary inside ftp - > ? binary) you should be able to use the files.

As far as filesystems - yes, UNIX has it's own.
Normally you could have one of many different types.

UFS - UNIX File System
NFS - Network File System
VXFS - Vertias File System - specific to Vertias Volume Manager

For SCO, see this information on their filesystems.

Ok, stupid question. These are native Unix binaries, right?

Thanks for your reply.
I did set the type to Binary before uploading.

Do you think the type of file system of the CD itself has anything to do with this ?

Thanks again.

I didn't get what he means.

Auswipe was asking if these files are actual executables for UNIX - if they are Windows executables, they won't work. What does the cd disc contain?
