What is FTP?
FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol. It allows you to transfer files to and from the server that your web site is on. To transfer files, you will need a FTP client and a FTP account. The advantage of FTP over downloading files from a web site is that with FTP, you can transfer a whole directory of files at a time, rather than one by one.
What is Anonymous FTP?
Anonymous FTP allows anyone to access a specified directory without a username or password. This means that anyone can access the files in your anonymous directory. Your anonymous directory is public_ftp/.
What is a FTP Session?
A FTP session is the length of time from when a user connects to your site through FTP to when the disconnect. Through FTP Session Control, you can end a FTP session for a user. You may wish to do this if there is an unauthorized user, or if a user cannot disconnect on their own. It is a good idea to monitor the FTP sessions on your server if you are providing Anonymous FTP Access.
