CFtpConnection Class

class CFtpConnection : public CInternetConnection

Remarks

The MFC class CFtpConnection both manages your FTP connection to an Internet server and allows direct manipulation of directories and files on that server. FTP is one of the three Internet services recognized by the MFC WinInet classes.

To communicate with an FTP Internet server, you must first create an instance of CInternetSession, and then create a CFtpConnection object. You never create a CFtpConnection object directly; rather, call CInternetSession::GetFtpConnection, which creates the CFtpConnection object and returns a pointer to it.

To learn more about how CFtpConnection works with the other MFC Internet classes, see the article Internet Programming with WinInet. For more information about communicating with the other two supported services, HTTP and gopher, see the classes CHttpConnection and CGopherConnection.

Example

See the example in the CFtpFileFind class overview.
