The FtpPassword property always returns an empty string.

The FtpPassword property can only be set by members of the sysadmin fixed server role at the Publisher or by members of the db_owner fixed database role on the publication database. Users in the publication access list (PAL) can set the FtpPassword property of an existing publication.

Setting the FtpPassword property is equivalent to executing sp_addpublication (Transact-SQL) and sp_changepublication (Transact-SQL) or sp_addmergepublication (Transact-SQL) and sp_changemergepublication (Transact-SQL).
