Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to any FTP site Actual Results: site did not load. alert said not proper permissions Expected Results: loaded site and continued to load a login screen
Do you use a proxy or firewall ? Can you please give us an example FTP URL ?
In order to reproduce this bug no proxies or firewalls are required. I tried to connect via ftp from different workstations (e.g. home, office), but it's all the same. A sample FTP URL which does not raise a login prompt but causes "alert 530" is ftp://www.vegan.com
Somehow I don't think ftp://www.... is a valid anonymous ftp URI. No problem reaching ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/latest-trunk/ in 2003011608 W32 trunk. Maybe you should try a newer build from this location.
Aaron: Does "It is a site I should have complete access to" mean that you have a username and password? Type: ftp://USER@ftp.vegan.com Mozilla will ask you for a password... see if it works. Felix: any ftp site can be configured to accept anonymous ftp access, even a site named "www..."
Ok, it is not a bug, it is just an undocumented feature. Using the scheme above (ftp://USERNAME@URL) works fine. Thanks for the hint.
FTP's current design is mostly for browsers, and assumes the ftp URLs will work when accessed directly. There is some discussion about how username errors should be handled (assuming the error message is parsable). Please mark this bug VERIFIED/dupe if you believe this bug is the same as the bug I have duped. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 124561 ***
