    I am running a reseller account and a customer is having a problem.

    We are trying to allow anonymous FTP access. Using WS_FTP Pro 9.0, the username "Anonymous" requires a password, as well using the account "anonymous@<domain>.com".

    Anyone know what's going on here? In my WHM area, I don't have the option of "Tweak FTP Settings" nor do I have any *.conf files in the etc directory of the directory.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks for the help.

    If and are both on the same server, and both have anonymous FTP enabled, and a user just logs in as anonymous. How is the server suppose to know which anonymous FTP account you want to access? By using, the server knows that you are wanting to access the anonymous FTP account of,
