Hello, I'm really new to, hacking?, dunno if I can even call it like that for now.
I installed linux mint about a week ago, and played with it a lot, Had a great time actually :geek:
Spent a lot of time navigating and reading all kind of topics about linux,
Used terminal only, Even navigating through windows and pages, I used keyboard shortcuts,
I know its laughable, But it made me feel cool inside :dirol: 
I really like it so far and getting used to it,
anyway enough about me...
the topic

from here to there i bumped into nmap, 

used it to see who is connected to the wifi and which open ports they have,
found one with 21/TCP open,

$ ftp **.**.**.** **
Connected to **.**.**.** 
220 Ftp firmware update utility

used Admin Admin as user and pass 

Name (**.**.**.**:******): Admin
331 Password please.
230 User logged in.
Remote system type is UNIX.
Using binary mode to transfer files.

but from there I feel stuck...

tried googling it, nothing helped me, or maybe I did it wrong..
I know I'm a noob,
1.FTP-file transfer protocol.
3. new line I never saw appears, ftp>

Is it really useless?

I feel like I'm in but have no idea what to do.
please help me, or at least assure me that it is useless

===================== Moderator's Note =====================
It's actually "file TRANSFER protocol", not "TRANSACTION" protocol. I took the liberty of fixing it. /scratchy

You have access to a "jailed" part of the file system. Y


There are several common techniques to exploit FTP most insecurities are from poor configuration by the administrator. Or bugs in the programming of the daemon.


This should get you started:
