FTP client setup
pre-requisite
make sure the server has been set up properly. You can refer to FTP server setup

There are 3 ways of using FTP:

P1). Graphical FTP clients
Graphical FTP clients simplify file transfers by allowing you to drag and drop file icons between windows. When you open the program, enter the name of the FTP host (e.g., http://ftp.microsoft.com) and your username and password. You can install FileZilla by:
Code:
sudo yum install epel-release
sudo yum install filezilla

P2). Web browser

You can use a web browser to connect to FTP addresses exactly as you would to connect to HTTP addresses. Most modern browsers, for example firefox and google, have this function. Using a web browser for FTP transfers makes it easy for you to browse large directories and read and retrieve files. While this method is convenient, web browsers are often slower and less reliable and have fewer features than dedicated FTP clients.
You can enter the URL like this:
Code:
ftp://username@<server-hostname>/

P3). Command-line FTP

To start FTP, at the command-line prompt, enter:
Code:
ftp <server-hostname>
then enter the username and password to login

Downloading and uploading files with FTP

Create a directory on client side to store the downloaded files
Code:
[root@tb257p-2 ~]# mkdir ftp_files

Log into the FTP server, set local FTP file download directory
Code:
ftp> lcd ~/ftp_files
note that lcd changes the current local directory, while cd changes the current remote directory

Use 'get' to download a file or use 'mget' to download multiple files
Code:
get <file-path>
mget <multiple file paths || wildcards>

Use 'put' to upload a file or 'mput' to upload multiple files
Code:
put <file-path>
mput <multiple file paths || wildcards>

P1 and P3 looks good as an init setup.

Please specify which browser in P2.

Please also add the details of download file by ftp. Propose it and ask for review.
