How to access a login and password free ftp address?

#1 Post by Vaako » 2018-11-08 20:33

Hi,

There are many ftp site you can access with your browser and no need for a login nor password.
But if I try such sites to access them via FilaZilla sudden it requires a login and password as anonymous does not work :o

Is it possible for FileZilla to access such websites?

Thanks
Regards Vaako

Yes, of course.

Just note that some sites want to see a password that looks like an Email address. The original specs said you use "Anonymous" or "ftp" as username and your Email address as password. Some servers still do these simple checks.

Browsers send password strings like "IEUser@" or "example@mozilla.org" which pass those tests. Try to send the same strings with FileZilla.

Different protocol. You are not using FTP with your browser. Note the http:// which means that you are viewing normal webpages.
