    Exclamation Creating Anonymous access to Proftpd

    Hi all,
    I just configured my Ubuntu 8.04 server with Proftpd and it works great. I am able to ftp to it on the local lan as well as from my public IP address provided by my ISP. I created a firewall rule in my router that sends all ftp traffic to this server.
    Got one question though: Currently I can only access it with my username and password but Proftp currently disables Anonymous access into a public folder which is what I want to achieve. I looked at the proftpd.conf file but am not sure what to uncomment out or add to enable anonymous. I do not want to mess up the current running config.

    Once I modify this config file do I need to create a Anonymous user account and create a "public" directory under that user's home so that users from the internet can upload/download file to?

    thanks !
