Default ftp upload files using the (S)hell

greetings to all masters & non-masters,

i am total beginner in this, but my resolution in 2013 is to operate Open & others BSD, please guide me.

during the Welcome to the OpenBSD/i386 5.2 installation program.
(I)nstall, (U)pgrade or (S)hell?

i choose shell, and there is a program ftp in /usr/bin

idk if that is a complete ftp program as in
http://www.openbsd.org/cgi-bin/man.cgi?query=ftp&apropos=0&sektion=0&manpath=Open BSD+Current&arch=i386&format=html

or a cut down version with limited feature. idk.

# ftp
usage: ftp [-o output] ftp://[user:password@]host[:port]/file[/]

how to use this to upload files?
since i want to copy the install script, install.md, install.sub out from virtualbox openBSD and use windows Notepad++ to read them.

ftp -o - ftp://[myusername@abc.com:mypassword@]abc.com:21

ftp -o - ftp://myname@abc.com:mypassword@abc.com:21

i tried several combination, but fail, please guide me, thank you.

It appears that you are attempting to do get the filesets manually. If so, you are making the process harder than intended. Section 4 of the FAQ covers installation issues, & in particular, Section 4.5.4 shows how the install script can be directed to get the filesets through FTP for you.

My suggestion would be to study Section 4 of the FAQ to familiarize yourself with the intended installation procedure before doing anything else. The FAQ is quite thorough in its explanation of a number of topics, be it installation or otherwise. A great New Year's resolution for all of us would be to take the time to study the entirety of the document. As a newcomer to OpenBSD, you will save yourself a lot of time & aggravation if you study it here at the beginning of your journey.

hi ocicat,
thanks for the fast reply,

i actually tried the common way to setup openbsd, and it works, and i got greedy and wish to see how the install script code works, i could cat it in virtualbox but too hard to read it inside,

is there anywhere i could download & read the install script?
(thats why i attempting to ftp out the install script file and read it outside virtualbox.)

The CVS source tree is available online at the project's Website. The link to the appropriate location for the install scripts follows:
