anonymous ftp over squid


I have squid proxy 2.6.STABLE6 and it's being allowed for ftp as folows

acl Safe_ports port 21 # ftp

it works fine as follows typed at browser url--> ftp://userassword@host/

I want squid just pass the ftp request without validation of authentication, means I just want --> ftp://host/ to work. (and the ftp server to look for authentication - my setup is like this)

How to configure this

Do I have to look for "ftp_user" ? If so what are the parameters of it.
ftp_user Squid@ (example explaining?)

Thank you

Still I am looking for a way to do it. I don't think ftp_user parameter can help me. But would like to know for what I have to use it and how to use it?

ok is there a way in squid to without bypassing the ftp lookups to look anonymous ftp? In such a case the ftp site should be configured in a such a way that it supports anonymous ftp. Am I correct?

Thank you
