Enable and use anonymous download

Hi, I'm trying to enable anonymous ftp download access.

I think the username should be anonymous@<mysite.com>  and the password is anonymous.

But when I connect to it, I get a 530 error.

It's possible that I haven't enabled it yet - but I can't work out how to. I'm using CPanel.

 

FTP access with the site username is working fine.

 

Thanks in advance.

Re: Enable and use anonymous download

I don't see having a username and password as anonymous @munich? I also don't really understand why you would need to provide uncontrolled access to your hosting? Check out How do I set up anonymous FTP in Simple Control Panel? I hope that helps?

...turns out that my two cents is worth less or more depending on the current exchange rate.

Re: Enable and use anonymous download

Thanks for the reply, but it doesn't help. Connecting to Simple Panel doesn't work for me (I don't think I have a dedicated server), so I can't set up the FTP permissions that way.

I'm trying to allow users to connect to my public_ftp folder to download files. I do not want to give them access to the rest of the site. I also don't need to enable uploads. I just can't see how to enable the downaloads.

Thanks - any help much appreciated.

Re: Enable and use anonymous download

Okay, so you have cPanel?

To set Anonymous FTP access:
1. Click on the Ftp Manager button on the home page.
2. Click on the Anonymous FTP Controls link.
3. Click on the Allow anonymous access to ftp://ftp.yourdomain.com tick box or the Allow anonymous upload to ftp://ftp.yourdomain.com/incoming tick box. You must click on both tick boxes to enable uploads.
4. Click on the Save Settings button.

Does that help?

Re: Enable and use anonymous download

rd, thanks for your reply. Your instructions look easy to follow - except for the fact that I don't have an Ftp Manager button on the Home Page. Options on the Home Page include FTP connections and FTP Accounts - but neither of these have the next options you mention.

Where is my Ftp Manager button?

Cheers!
