Question Always prompting login form when anonymous users try download files from ftp???


Hi,all

I'm trying adjust my proftpd server's settings, that anonymous users could download what they need smoothly.

A small problem made me so bemused:

In the configuration file of proftpd, I place the following setting section in the <anonymous> section,

Code:
<Limit LIST NLST RMD WRITE DELE>
    DenyUser ftp
</Limit>
After restarting the proftpd server and applying the configuration, I try downloading a file in IE browser. Sometimes, it prompts a saveas dialog, and everything was okay.

However, it occasionally prompts a login form instead of a SaveAs dialog. This makes our customers confused greatly.

So, how could I prevent browser from prompting login form when anonymous users try to download files from our ftp server?
