ls -l (Get a list of files from the remote server) (On some servers, "list" does the same thing as "ls -l".) cd dir (change to "dir" on remote server) lcd dir (change to "dir" on your PC) get filename (download "filename" from remote server) mget filename* (download all files matching "filname*") put filename (upload "filename" to remote server) mput filename* (upload all files matching "filname*") bye (quit out of ftp)
These commands work if you're ftp'd into a unix server. I don't know what might happen on NT.
Sure. You can FTP with just about anything. I've even FTP'd via IE 5. A subweb in FrontPage is a web unto itself. Think of it as a web within a web. As long as you're not FTPing into the main FrontPage web you should not have problems.
General rule of thumb, if the site has FrontPage extensions, do not use FTP to upload or modify site content with the following exceptions:
Files for downloading
Images being referenced from a database application
Access Database - if not using the FrontPage database component

Using that command will ensure everything you are transferring is in "binary" code. You want to be sure to use this command if you are using windows, otherwise microsoft products tend to try to transfer things in ascii (text).
This becomes a problem when you are ftp'ing photos or gif files...if the default is ascii, then you end up with garbage as the server made the photo into text.
