Hi,
A customer of mine set up an ftp server with the username anonymous and the password anonymous. This isn't anonymous login, it's ftp://anonymous:anonymous@. When I try to add a bookmark to this server, I can't because Cyberduck automatically selects "anonymous login" when I enter the username "anonymous", blocking me from entering the password to the server.

Steps to reproducce:

  1. Create a server account with the username "anonymous" and the password "anonymous"
  2. Try to create a bookmark that connects to this server with this username and password

Result: Password cannot be entered because Cyberduck assumes there's no password for the user anonymous.

Please make a change so that the username "anonymous" doesn't automatically assume anonymous login. I'm running Cyberduck 4.4 on OS X 10.9 (Mavericks).

For anonymous users by default login will either work without a password or any password. Use a different username if the password matters.

It's not possible for me to use a different username as I'm not in control of the server. Having an ftp user account with the username anonymous and a specific password is a valid use case (it's not a smart thing to do, but it's a thing that you can do). As it stands, Cyberduck blocks the user from bookmarking an ftp site that is set up in this way for no valid reason.

To be clear, I'm not attempting to perform an anonymous login, I'm trying to log in as the user "anonymous" with a specific password. Cyberduck prevents me from entering a password for the user "anonymous" and I have no access to any other user accounts on the server, so there is no way for me to bookmark this server in the current version of cyberduck

For anonymous users by default login will either work without a password or any password.

I can't, I'm not in control of the server. While the use case is unusual, it seems valid to me and I'm surprised to see the bug report discarded so readily.

As a workaround you can set the hidden property connection.login.anon.pass using

defaults write ch.sudo.cyberduck connection.login.anon.pass anonymous
