Can someone clarify this request the request in my second paragraph? I don't understand the last part.  This is for a ListServ application that the general public will need to have subscribe (write) rights.

"A "somedsn" DSN has been created to point to the database "somedb.mdb". At the moment, your FTP account has modify rights to the MDB. Under what user name will writes be made to this database (anonymous ...or a named account?)."

your FTP account has modify rights to the MDB. Under what user name will writes be made to this database (anonymous ...or a named account?)."

If you want to meaning this part then this means than the replier ask you that which ftp user they give permission . He want the ftp user name which have the required permission on database.

(anonymous ...or a named account?)."

Anonymous

Anonymous  user means everyone have permission on the database . In Anonymous user the domain name used only . user name and Password not required to ftp so they asking that give anonymous access to this database. ITs not secure and not use this account for database .

named account

Names account means The ftp account which is use for ftp of your site through the ftp user and passsword.
