i recently installed IIS 3.0 on NT4 SP6
the ftp service is set to only allow anonymous connections, yet when i ftp to the server using command line, gui client or even explorer it keeps asking me for a password.

i know i can change the password to whatever but i specifically need to know what is that password or atleast what determines the password, maybe its a random SID? i dunno
