    Does Windows 10 Home contain the ftp server software?

    I have my windows 7 home edition computer configured as a ftp server using the built-in Microsoft ftp package. It lets me collect the images that my webcam ftps every 15 minutes. Then I can grab the latest image, add a timestamp, etc and send it off to the web with some other ftp software. The Microsoft ftp package is actually pretty good once you figure out the conventions.

    My question: does anyone know if windows 10 contains their ftp software so I can reestablish my internal ftp site? Or do I need to go find a 3rd party ftp software package to install after the win 10 upgrade?

    I can only confirm that my Windows 10 Pro has it.

    yes its available via command line
    or rather you can connect to an FTP, I am not sure about set the machine as an FTP server.
    TFTP is similar but different

    ftp> ?
    Commands may be abbreviated. Commands are:

    ! delete literal prompt send
    ? debug ls put status
    append dir mdelete pwd trace
    ascii disconnect mdir quit type
    bell get mget quote user
    binary glob mkdir recv verbose
    bye hash mls remotehelp
    cd help mput rename
    close lcd open rmdir

    Yes, but you have to install IIS to use it, which is a bit of a pain to configure. You might just want to install a freeware ftp server, like FileZilla server.

    I just looked and home does have it. you have to enable it under programs and features then add remove windows features.
    if you like the onboard windows ftp, by all means use it but yes FileZilla is a much easier way to go.
