    normally, it should be possible to access a ftp server via normal browsers such as firefox...if password protectd, the browser pops up a username/pw dialog window to authenticate before allowing to navigate and download stuff... with 10.6.8 server's ftpserver, I merely get a '550 permission denied' error
    ?

    Many browsers by default authenticate with 'anonymous' as username, and some arbitrary password. As there is no such user to authenticate as, you get permission denied.

    You could embed the username and password in the URL you enter to access the ftp in the format
    Code:
    ftp://user:password@ftpserverIP
    for example

    Code:
    ftp://G0meZ:password@localhost
    GL HF.
