Ftp anonymous access for public folder


#1

hello, i want access from outside my network with ftp to my WD.

when i try it with login it works ok but when i want to access the public folder i cannot see it nor access it.

also when i try it internal i cannot see the public folder.

in the WD network - FTP - Enable Anonymous is set to yes.

what can be wrong?

Or is it possible to access the WD with a password by URL for ex. ftp:\username\ipadres\ password

the only way to access it, is by URL, so no ftp client!

Connecting an FTP via URL goes like this:

ftp://username:password@ipfromserver.com

Look at the permissons for the Public Folder in the Menu “Users”, if it is public respectively the rights are set correctly.
