Anonymous FTP Use

  • If you have an anonymous FTP directory, it will be created as /p/ftp/pub/login and owned by you. This directory is deleted when your CS department account is deleted.
  • Please be conservative in your space use and only put out there what must be there.
  • Edit /p/ftp/pub/login/.message as appropriate. This message gets displayed when someone cd's into the directory (once per ftp session).
  • Do not create any world writable directories (if you think you need these, talk to IT Staff. We reserve the right to delete the /p/ftp/pub/login directory completely if we find them.
  • Be careful not to put any copyrighted or licensed material out there unless you have explicit permission from the appropriate people/organization. If you have any questions about what is OK, please ask IT Staff.
  • The location for your directory should be advertised as /pub/login on, or the URL
