In System Preference, I've selected the Sharing settings, enabled File Sharing using FTP. However, when I go to ftp://[my internal IP address] using Firefox, I get an alert that says '530 User anonymous unknown'. When using FileZilla, I'm still unable to connect. It doesn't even seem to do anything.

Does anyone have any suggestions to fix this problem?

In your ftp client, you need to enter the name of the user whose folder you want access to, and their password.

Does this even work? To do this, don't you need an FTP server running on your Mac? I have used PureFTPd for this since I got my Mac. I have never even tried it without - do Macs come with a built in FTP server? After two years I am just finding this out if it true.

My Macs: iMac 27" 3.4 GHz, Mac Pro 3.2 GHz, PowerMac G5 Quad 2.5 GHz, G4 Cube with 1.2 GHz Upgrade
My iStuff: 64GB iPhone 5, 64GB iPad4, 30GB iPod Video, 16GB iPod Touch
My OS': Mac OS X Lion, Mac OS X Snow Leopard, Mac OS X Tiger, Mac OS 9.2.2, openSUSE 10.3

Thanks! That did the trick. Is there a way to redirect all anonymous requests to my Public folder?

Doing it the way you are doing it, I doubt it. You'd really need to install a more robust FTP server.

I *think* that setting up the Guest account for OS X will serve as an anonymous login also. Try setting that up and see where it gets you.

That would be lovely, but unfortunately that didn't work. I'll start searching for a real FTP server. Thanks for your help!
