An anonymous FTP account is a special account for
which no password is necessary.
The login id is either ``ftp" or ``anonymous" and the password is
typically your E-mail address.
anonymous FTP accounts are typically used to provide unrestricted access
to freely available files on various sites on the Internet.
Public Domain packages are usually put in such accounts (although many sites
now put them within their web server area, for added access control/security).
