gigabytes of data using this method.  I use a free program called
GuildFTPd, available at  Additionally,
there are other shareware, freeware, or relatively very inexpensive

account options listed on their respective sites.  Check out the site

The Virtual Server System now supports both Anonymous and
Multi-user FTP. Anonymous FTP allows anyone to access software,
documents and information right from your Anonymous FTP Server. The
Multi-user FTP allows you to assign an ID and password to multiple
customers or employees. By requiring a unique ID and password you can
restrict downloading certain information to perhaps paying customers
while other internal information would be available for downloading
only by employees.
