 5. What is Anon FTP?


1.  How do users download files from my Anon FTP? - Top
       

 <A HREF="ftp://yourdomain.com/tr/something.exe">Download Something Now</A>     is accessible via a web browser.

This is the same as your
/home/username/public_ftp
 
    


2.  Incoming Anon FTP directory? - Top
       


The incoming directory would be:

ftp://domainname.com/incoming

This directory is writable from the web but NOT readable. No one coming in from the web (or from an FTP program logging in  as "anonymous" or "anonymous@yourdomain.com") can see what files are stored here.
 
      


3.  What are all the directories Anon FTP sets up? - Top
       

After anonymous FTP is setup, it will create a directory called domainname-anonftp in the user's home directory. This  directory will by default contain the following directories:
/public_ftp/incoming
/public_ftp

The only directory that is used is the "pub" directory. This is  where the client should put files that they want to have users anonymously download. Users can access this directory via a browser by going to:

ftp://domainname.com/

Note, we do not allow clients the ability to allow users to both upload and download to the same directory. We do this for security reasons. The client is responsible for moving files from  the incoming directory to the pub directory if they wish for uploaded files also to be downloaded.

The incoming directory is created by default .
The incoming directory would be:

ftp://domainname.com/incoming

This directory is writable from the web but NOT readable. No one coming in from the web (or from an FTP program logging in  as "anonymous") can see what files are stored here.

This can be useful for resellers who want to allow their clients to update their pages but don't want to give them full FTP  access. The clients would upload to incoming and the reseller would move the files into domainname-www.
 
     


4.  How do I setup Anon FTP? - Top
       

Go to your control panel at http://yourdomain.com:2082/ and click on the "Anon FTP" button. You will then be able to click  on the "Install Anon FTP" button

5.  What is Anon FTP?- Top
       

Anonymous FTP is the ability to upload and/or download files  from our servers without having a login username and password. Obviously, for security reasons, we only allow anonymous FTP to specific directories.
