When attempting to set up ftp, I tried to check by ftp'ing to my own

Nothing. You have only allowed the user "anonymous".
I would assume because each file therein is owned by a real user and
therefore "anonymous" does not have permission to view anything therein.
I would like to hear from the gurus on the list why this is so too.
