NetX FTP Client Module Guide Resources

Last Updated:03/02/2018


Where can I find the references to module guide resources for the Express Logic NetX™ and NetX™ Duo FTP Client module?


Information on the module guide itself and the associated resources and known issues are available here.


The File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is a protocol designed for file transfers. FTP utilizes reliable Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) services to perform its file transfer function. Because of this, FTP is a highly reliable file transfer protocol with high-performance. The actual FTP file transfer is performed on a dedicated FTP connection.

The NetX™ FTP Client supports IPv4 only. The NetX Duo™ FTP Client accommodates both IPv4 and IPv6 networks. IPv6 does not directly change the FTP protocol, although some changes in the original NetX FTP API are necessary to accommodate IPv6 and will be described in this document.

The module supports the following features:

  • Multi-thread support
  • High level APIs
    • Connecting and disconnecting
    • Directory operations
    • File operations
