arod-ga, Firstly, your FTP site needs to be capable of anonymous logins. You would then need to place the file in the anonymous-login directory for your system (this may be different for ws-ftp, ftpd-BSD, etc...). Once this is setup you can then simply link to it like this: <a href="ftp://www.mydomain.com/anon-ftp-dir/mypdf.pdf">Click here!</a> Alternatively, you can create an ftp account for users to use. This would require supplying your users with a login and password. It is NOT a good idea to include an ftp link with the username and password enclosed, for example: <a href="username:password@ftp://www.mydomain.com/anon-ftp-dir/mypdf.pdf">Click here!</a> This creates more security concerns than you want to deal with. See the faq in reference 1 below for more information on Anonymous FTP. Hope this helps, krobert-ga References: 1) Anonymous FTP FAQ http://www.faqs.org/faqs/ftp-list/faq/ Search Strategy: www.google.com: anonymous ftp faq
