Currently it appears that by typing I can access my ftp files from any web browser. How is the best way to prevent this?

Hello doctree2,

Most, if not all, web browsers have an FTP feature. There are also stand alone programs that allow the same thing. As long as the person does not have your login information, they will not be allowed into the server via FTP.

Our servers do not allow anonymous FTP connection as part of their security protocols.

Best Regards,
