    Hello.

    Can anybody explain me how anonymous FTP on CPanel works?
    I try to login with both anonymous and ftp user and get the same answer:

    331 Anonymous login ok, send your complete email address as your password.
    Password:
    530-Unable to set anonymous privileges.
    530 Login incorrect.
    Login failed.

    Such situation with all domains on my server. Does anonymous FTP require dedicated IP address for the domain? Or maybe I have misconfiguration in the proftpd.conf?

    Please help me. I wll be very appreciate for you help.

    For true anonymous ftp, yes, they'll need a dedicated IP address for their domain.

    Hello,

    There is a work around to this. If you use anonymous@therdoamin.com as the username and a valid email address as the password, this will log them on anonymously. We use a shared ip address and this works fine for those not wanting to use a dedicated ip address with their domain.

    Regards

    Christopher

    You must use anonymous@domain.com where domain.com is the domain for the anonymous FTP access.
