Windows 10: Does Win10 support the old Windows FTP Client?

    I use ftp daily and it works fine in 10 and exactly the same as it ever did.

    Like @MilesAhead said some detail of the error would help.

    I do find (as I use vpn quite a lot) that sometimes ftp will be blocked. This is nothing to do with the OS though - it is how you are connecting to the internet. Some vpn (for some security reason I don't understand) block ftp. Obviously you'll get a reason code indicating if this is the case.

    Again detail would help. All we have so far is "it doesn't work." Is there an error message? Have you tried being on the phone with one of the people with W10 as they try it? Then you could tell them to look for any error msg and read it to you etc..

    I realize remote unsophisticated users don't give much feedback but without anything it amounts to a guessing game.
    Perhaps you didn't see my response to your last post.

    SmartFTP is a commercial client. I would use FileZilla or WinSCP.

    . . . Are you able to physically get to one of the W10 computers at the club and manually input the commands in a run box, and see what returns?
    There are two different people using these two programs from their home computers. I'm concluding from responses here it should work and am therefore going to upgrade to 10.

    I don't use any client. I use the cmd box and it works fine.

    I did use filezilla in the past but in the end decided it was more efficient (for me) just to type ftp commands in direct. I've been doing that since XP days.

    You shouldn't worry though - it all works fine and all ftp clients just send the same information out anyway.

    I'm venturing to guess that *.ftp files are not associated with an ftp program in Windows 10.

    You mean this?
    When you're right you're right. I've been intending to do this for a couple of days.

    Nothing about this is in the a Windows Program Files directory.

    The filename for the following is FTPuploadNewsletter.ftp

    File contents:
    open xxxxxguild.org
    guildnews
    password (password to xxxxxguild.org is sent here)
    ascii
    put newsletter.htm (name of am htm file)
    Binary
    put vol43no12.pdf (name of a file)
    quit
    I don't see an error code or what in particular "does not work." All I see is that it works in other versions of Windows. I'll leave it as there's no point going over the same ground.

    I've written a couple of utilities for my wife's club (upload passwords, upload newsletter) that uses the Windows FTP client. They quit working for the two users who have upgraded to 10. I have to do it for them. This has kept me form upgrading to 10. Has it changed or have they quit supporting it?

    I'm leaving for most of the day so I won't be able to reply for a while.

    One difference I have found is, Windows 10 seems to send an OPTS subcommand before asking for signon credentials. This does not cause any real problem when entering the command manually, but I want to do batch FTP and the server I am connected to does not recognize the OPTS subcommand and I am left at the "user" prompt.

    Haven't tried the Windows version of FTP as I've had CuteFTP from Globalscape for more than 10 years [not free]. I've found that FileZilla works good also and is free. And it is cross-platform, works on Linux and Mac OS X.
