Is anonymous FTP available?
Yes, we offer this service to departments and organizations. It’s not intended for personal use due to limited resources. The server is located at ftp.unc.edu. It’s utilized by creating a public_ftp subdirectory at the AFS mount point for the department. Once this is established the DCI group will create a special duplicate mount point under /afs/isis.unc.edu/public/ftp. The ftp server will pickup on changes immediately. A Help Request will need to be submitted for this change to take place.
Keep in mind it may be easier for you to publish your files underneath your public_html space and let people download documents from there directly, via a web browser. If you have very large documents, ftp is more efficient and takes less resources on the server.
Please be advised of the following information regarding this service:
1) Material posted to this site can be seen by the entire world with NO restrictions
2) NO SENSITIVE INFORMATION OF ANY KIND should be posted to an anonymous FTP site.
