You can use an <a href="ftp://ftpsite/"> FTP</a> however, you can not control the behavior of the browser on the other side.

Place the above in its entirety where you want the link to appear.

My link on my page is called  "LOG IN".  I can change the link to what ever I want it to point too..  Do I put the whole line thats above or just  "ftp://192.168.1.1/pub" or "ftp://forevermoore.com/pub".  All I have is a ip address for the FTP site.
