Use this tab to control who can administer this FTP site. You can specify the account to be used for anonymous client requests to log on to the computer, and you can control those users with user rights as site operators.

Allow anonymous connections

Select to allow anonymous connections to the FTP site using a predefined user name and password.

User name

Type the user name that should be used for anonymous connections, or click Browse to select another user.


Click to search and select the object type, such as user, and the location, such as your computer or any accessible computer connected on the network.


Type the password that is associated with the specified user name.

Allow only anonymous connections

Select to configure IIS to allow only anonymous connections. When selected, users cannot log on with user names and passwords. This option denies access to those who use an account with administrative credentials; only those who use an anonymous access account are assigned access.
