File Transfer Protocol (FTP)

As the name implies, FTP is used to transfer files.

Security

FTP uses plain text passwords, so take care.

History

XXX - add a brief description of FTP history

Protocol dependencies

Example traffic

XXX - Add example traffic here (as plain text or Wireshark screenshot).

Wireshark

The FTP dissector is fully functional.

Preference Settings

There are no FTP specific preference settings.

Example capture file

XXX - Add a simple example capture file to the SampleCaptures page and link from here. Keep it short, it's also a good idea to gzip it to make it even smaller, as Wireshark can open gzipped files automatically.

Display Filter

A complete list of FTP display filter fields can be found in the display filter reference

Capture Filter

You cannot directly filter FTP protocols while capturing. However, if you know the TCP port used (see above), you can filter on that one.
