#843 closed Bug report (wontfix)

Password prompt for anonymous user is misleading

Reported by: cbarlock Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Server

I set up an anonymous user which does not require a
password to login. The FileZilla FTP server still tells the
anonymous user that a password is required, but you
can just hit enter and you're in.

I think that if no password is required, then the server
should allow the user in without prompting for a
password that isn't used.

In addition, the user "anonymous" can be treated
specially with a preference that asks the user to enter
their email address in place of the password. Other FTP
servers do this.

I created a new user, then i check for password, and uncheck
it. When i try to connect he tell me a password.

Common FTP idiom that a password is required for the anonymous logon.

Requesting an e-mail address is counter-productive. Only annoys people and you're not likely to get a truthful answer.
