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

<a href="ftp://someurl.com/pub"> Click Here to go to FTP site</a>
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.
