    I put some files in my public_ftp folder, as well as in the public_ftp/incoming folder.

    I also checked the option "Site Management Tools / FTP Manager > Anonymous FTP > Allow anonymous access"

    When accessing ftp.mydomain.com anonymously in my browser, I don't see any file...
    How could I give access to the public using the FTP protocol?
    Thanks,

    Charles.

    Polite authentication is usually done this way:
    Username: anonymous
    Password: your_email@your_place.com

    You must have a dedicated IP for anonymous ftp to work.

    If you have a dedicated IP then try an ftp client first and if you can access anonymous ftp then the problem is within your browser.

    Are you using IE?

    :)

    Thank you. Yes I have a dedicated IP. I'm using WS_FTP Pro 2006, logging in anonymously as you stated above.

    Please try it: ftp.nouvelordre.org - You won't see any file, although I have some files in my public_ftp folder. How could I solve this?
