Creating an anonymous login?

#1 Post by nebulus » 2004-06-23 14:49

Hey guys. I searched the forum for this and didn't find anything, so I'll ask: Is there a way to allow anonymous FTP in FileZilla Server?

Sorry to brought back this old old topic but this procedure seems not to work with the last server version (0.9.33 beta).

Code: Select all

<User Name="anonymous ">
Delete the excessive space after 'anonymous'.

That's what Netiquette says: Give your full email as password. But I've yet to see anyone actually doing that.

Then it's not anonymous anymore, just a regular account with that name.

To avoid confusion, I'm assuming loging in as "anonymous" means that only the username is actually anonymous, but not your connection. The FTP server can still log your IP..

Your problem is completely unrelated to anything discussed here. You are having problems with geolocation and IP-banning of regions. So you need to go and find a location anonymizing proxy (e. g. a US. one). But we can't help you with that here.
