So I sez:

There is one more step needed in the sequence above. Most ftp sites
expect one to log in just like any other multiuser system. An anonymous
ftp site (which was the subject of the original question, btw) will
accept a user name of "anonymous", with your e-mail address as a
password. So I might have an ftp session that starts like so:

28% rftp <------ the command to start the ftp session

Using SOCKS protocol ver. 4 to proxy server

230- Welcome to the San Diego Supercomputer Center's new UNIX based
230- anonymous ftp archive. Local time is currently Wed Jun 1 19:22:33 1994.
230- All transfers are logged with your host name and email address.
230- If you don't like this policy, disconnect now!


From there, it's just like Brad sez...
