A. If you access an FTP site that doesn't allow anonymous access, you must provide a username and password. To access an FTP site anonymously from IE, use the syntax

ftp://ftp.<site name>.com

To pass a username and password, the syntax is

ftp://<username>:<password>@<ftp site>

For example, to access the Internet Software Consortium (ISC) ftp site, you might type

ftp://john:john@ibm.com@ftp.isc.org

where "john" is the username and "john@ibm.com" is the password.

Similarly, to pass just a username, you can use the syntax

ftp://<username>@<ftp site>
