anonymous FTP (AFTP)

With the Anonymous File Transfer Protocol (AFTP), the user can load files onto his own computer or copy them to the server without specifying a special password and a specially assigned user ID.

This gives him simplified access to all data available to the public without the usual access control of systems. The anonymous FTP protocol (AFTP) corresponds to the file transfer in TCP/ IP with the difference that the login as "anonymous" is sufficient. The user answers the login with "anonymous", the password Guest or his e-mail address.
