Option Description
Host name or IP address Type the name or IP address of the FTP server to log on to.
Anonymous Log on to the FTP server as a guest, with the user name anonymous.
Save password Select to save your password in encrypted form in your session document file. (Passwords for anonymous connections are not encrypted). If you prefer not to store information about your password in your session file, clear this check box. If the password was previously saved, it is removed.
User name Enter your user name as it is registered on the FTP server.
Password Enter the password the FTP server associates with the user name registered on the FTP server.
When the Anonymous check box is selected, a password appears in plain text, instead of asterisks (*), as you type it.
If no password is expected, click OK to continue.
