is anyone what's wrong with this ?:)
The error message is telling you that you are trying to login to FTP as an anonymous user and that this is not allowed.

1) Have you set your server to allow anonymous FTP? If not, it just won't work unless you do.

2) Are you actually trying to login as a valid FTP user and not trying to login anonymously? In which case, enter your FTP details correctly.

ftp problem solution

I had this very same problem. Really annoying.

Tried this and tried that. Finally contacted isp who told me they WON'T ALLOW ANONYMOUS FTP LOGIN because it gives anyone the ability to break in to my (and their) server quite easily.

If you have access to the server you CAN set it to allow anon FTP, but if you don't, and your isp is overseeing this, you're stuck.

That's MY experience. Hope it's helpful.

xray

If anonymous FTP is disabled ..You can still login ..Just ignore that message by clicking on "Ok" button and

Goto File >> Login As
Enter FTP login details

Cheers
