A common FTP question in the file transfer community for users that are new to FTP is: What is my user ID and password?
The host administrator (or FTP Server administrator) that you’re connecting to typically generates the User ID and Password. Then the FTP client uses the same User ID and Password to connect to that FTP Server. All passwords are encrypted on the server and the administrator can control the length and character set for passwords.
It’s an easy one, but an important for anyone getting started with a file transfer from client to server.
