TCPIP Services, FTP, Copying Files
*Conan The Librarian
To copy files from a remote host to your local host, use the GET command. To copy files from your local host to a remote host, use the PUT command. To use these commands, you must have an active FTP session with a remote host. You can enter any number of commands during the session. You can also use the COPY/FTP command to copy files across the network using TCP/IP. For more information on this command, type HELP COPY/FTP at the DCL prompt. FTP resolves the differences between UNIX file systems and OpenVMS file systems automatically. By default, the PUT command copies files to UNIX systems using lowercase file names without version numbers. If you use a wildcard to copy all versions of a file and do not specify an output file, the following occurs: o The version numbers become the last element of the copied files. o Semicolons are converted to periods.
