Hi,

Anyone can teach me how should I configure mya FTP server so that my user can access it via web browser?

if I do ftp://username@myserver/path then it will still ask password. How to specify password in the ftp command?

If I setup anonymouse ftp account, can my user access ftp://myserver/path without typing password?

ftp://username:password@mywebserver/path/

as for anonymous, yes if their browser handles that for them, i believe IE (and i know mozilla) can be set to send your email or whatever junk you put on the line as your anonymous ftp password, but you could also do the same as above:

ftp://anonymous:password@mywebserver/path/
