Enabling Anonymous Access

To enable anonymous FTP access, click the "Anonymous FTP settings" link in the main FTP menu.  You will be taken to a screen that looks like this:

 

 

To enable anonymous FTP, place a check next to "Allow Anonymous Access."  If you want to give anonymous users the ability to upload, click the "Allow Anonymous Upload" link.

 

You may see "Error reading welcome.msg" in the "Welcome Message" textbox.  This error occurs because no welcome message has been set yet.  Please enter a new welcome message at this time.

 

Be sure to click "Save" after you are finished.

 

Warning:  

 

Allowing anonymous uploads is potentially dangerous, and many hosts will disable the entire anonymous FTP access feature for this reason.
