What Is Anonymous FTP And How To Use It?

Article Rating: 3 / 5 Votes: 695

Anonymous File Transfer Protocol (FTP) allows the public to log into an FTP server with a common login (usually "ftp" or "anonymous") and any password (usually the person's e-mail address) to access the files on the server.

Anonymous FTP is beneficial for the distribution of large files to the public, without having to assign large numbers of login and password combinations for FTP access.

For security purposes, Network Solutions does not support Anonymous FTP.
