What Is An Anonymous FTP

Anonymous File Transfer Protocol allows the public to log into an FTP server with a common login (usually "FTP" or "anonymous" and any password—usually the person's email address—is used as the password). Anonymous FTP is beneficial for the distribution of large files to the public, avoiding the need to assign large numbers of login and password combinations for FTP access.

For security reasons, we do not allow anonymous FTP.
