    File Transfer Protocol (FTP), a standard Internet protocol, is the simplest way to exchange files between computers on the Internet. Like the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP), which transfers displayable Web pages and related files, and the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP), which transfers e-mail, FTP is an application protocol that uses the Internet's TCP/IP protocols. FTP is commonly used to transfer Web page files from their creator to the computer that acts as their server for everyone on the Internet. It's also commonly used to download programs and other files to your computer from other servers.

    FTP's are used mostly to upload webpages and other items online to a server. Limewire is a PTP which is a peer to peer program.

    the downside with EMails is which you're constrained to a low length of document that EMails can carry -- attachments -- placed a too vast attachment in this technique of flow and the document the two would not get there or is corrupted, while, documents making use of the FTP approach is transferred directly to a server for get right of entry to later with the aid of yet another recipient and can carry a lot larger length documents (even video clips) and at an better velocity than mail seem at "Dropbox" -- i've got self assurance that this makes use of the FTP approach -- I placed super documents into Dropbox, then setup the sharing with whom I choose to deliver the document and offering they have this put in they then acquire it to their gadget as quickly because it has arrived in my Dropbox

    no, limeware is p2p.

    an ftp program would be considered cuteftp or something.

    unlike p2p a ftp program is hosted by a server, and any individual can download it if they connect to the ftp server.
