    My site's on a FTP, but I haven't been able to log onto it for ages. I'm using a friends FTP.

    How do I allow people to download from the FTP? Before I would use my web address...but I don't know what the address is (if any) for this FTP.

    What would the link be?

    use this address to connect with Internet Explorer to the ftp:

    ftp://<<your friend&#39;s IP>> (put this in the browser address bar - note put your friends IP directly after the / without the &#39;<<&#39

    If you have a username and pass for the ftp then use this format:

    ftp://username@<<your friend&#39;s IP>> the browser will then ask you for the pass.

    Is there anyway to do it without giving out the password?

    I don&#39;t know if he would want me to do that.



    Like I said before, my FTP was web1000. I could give links to files by using my website. www.brownsugarstudios.web1000.com/files/filename. If I don&#39;t know the site he is hosting, is there no other way to do that?

    if you have the ability to change/create FTP accounts, just great one called guest with a password of &#39;guest&#39; or something.

    and you should still be able to give direct http links to files for stuff, unless it&#39;s in a protected directory.

    But the simple solution would be to add an "anonymous" account without a need for a password at all.
