    It seems the ftp's admin has disabled anonymous login on that site when going through pure ftp(e.g. ftp://ftp.site.com ). Try using something like http://ftp.site.com. If that doesn't work, it seems to me you 're out of luck.

    Firefox has a funny FTP login, its looks something like this: ftp://<user>@<address>/

    for example, I use this for my local server ftp://crazy_carl@192.168.1.102/

    Hope that helps

    Funny? That's the standard way. IE does the same. :)

    HTTP won't work unless the server has an FTP wrapper through a web server.

    FireFTP was slow as hell when I tried it, so I'd recommend using a separate FTP client. Filezilla will work in most cases.
