My internet brokerage (InteractiveBrokers) has, obviously, a very secure site. However, as far as I can tell, they supply some public useful information on what I would think is a public site. The address is ftp://ftp2.interactivebrokers.com/usa.txt
. Maybe there is some cookie somewhere that is supplying my login details but I've tried logging out of IB in order to test this, and I still have no problem accessing the address - through Internet Exporer.
So I can access the site easily from Internet Explorer. But if I try download it using WebClient in C# I always get the error "The remote server returned an error: (530) Not logged in.". I've tried adding my IB username/password as Credentials, but that doesn't seems to make a difference.
So I guess firstly I'm asking, is the ftp site accessible by everyone as I assume. And if so, what do I need to do to access it using WebClient?
