The FTP client’s user interface communicates withthe control process, which manages the controlconnection. This control process translates anyapplication-specific commands to the FTPcommands, and then communicates these controlcommands to the FTP server. The FTP server’scontrol process receives these commands, andthen initiates the appropriate processes to servicethe client’s requests. If the requests require thetransfer of data, data management is performed bythe DTPS on both the client and server applications. Following the completion of the datatransfer, the data connection is closed, and controlis returned to the PIs of the client and server applications.
