Your anonymous ftp site is completely
different from your web site.
When people ftp to your domain anonymously,
they will see the following directories:
bin/ dev/ etc/ incoming/ lib/ pub/
"pub" is where you should put all
your anonymously accessible files.
"incoming" is for the anonymous
users to upload files.
For security the following applies
Only the incoming directory can be written
Subdirectories are not creatable
The incoming directory is not readable
by people dropping files there
You are responsible for any "pirated"
software uploaded by the anonymous users. The anonymous
ftp sites will be periodically monitored
for any abuses.
You may ignore the other directories.
To access the anonymous FTP site
via the web, use the following address:
Your HTML to download a file called
mirc511s.exe from a webpage would look like this:
You should tell your visitors that
they may need to right-click on the link if they are PC users, or if they
use a Macintosh, they need to hold down the mouse button on the link, then
select the appropriate option from the Pop-up menu.
Please note it's possible during
peak hours to receive a "too many anonymous users error", We must restrict
the number of simultaneous anonymous users to keep the webserver and normal
FTP performance within normal limits. If you receive this error often you
may want to put you downloadable files in your main web directory and link
to them with an http call
This assumes the zip files are in
the main web directory.
Note - if your customer experiences
slow download performance chances are it's a problem on the internet. We
maintain a large margin of available bandwidth so bottlenecks never occur
within our network. Please feel free to send an inquiry to be sure all
the servers are operating properly, if you include there ISP's IP# we will
run traceroutes to see where the delays are occuring.
