FTP 'Anonymous' user
I am just getting use to server 2003, I would like to set up an ftp server for home using IIS. I have set up everything required except the anonymous access. I would like to set this up.
I do not know what the password is; how to change it, and would like to know what member the anonymous account has to be put in in order for it to be used. I know there is a default one but I would like this changed to a personalised one.
I do not know if you understand what it is for anonymous access. Anonymous access is for public access, everyone can connect and browse the FTP server they only have to use as pass something like and e-mail address, it could be completely fake.
If you want to have public access open make sure it's only for reading and limit the accessible paths.
Just getting used to server 2003?
Made me lol too. :D
