hi guys, please help my understanding

I heard that in order to transfer a file from R3 application server to an external system, one would use FTP_CONNECT, FTP_COMMAND, and FTP_DISCONNECT. My question

is concerning the logical FTP process not THE CODING.

Of course we have to connect to the external system in order to transfer file.

1) Function FTP_CONNECT serves to connect to the external system??? the user & password parameters should be provided for what system ? R3 or the external system??? What does that mean SAPFTP destination ?? The host is the external system or R3 system?? Where is exactly the ftp server???

2) Function FTP_COMMAND serves to execute a command in the external system, rite???

Thanks in advance
