By Everyone, I think it means All Registered Users. You would need to enable Anonymous Login for it to be anyone at all, or you can log into the FTP server using the format: 


Obviously, replace user with the FTP user, password with the password, and ftpservername with the FQDN of your ftp server. Some browsers may not support this. Use on that can. It may actually launch a local FTP client though. Depends on the browser and platform.

Uploads work fine, but I now find that when I want to access such a file via a browser using http, I get “you don’t have permission...”. I’ve set the permissions via Transmit to “everyone can read”. I think the numeric equivalent is 644, although I am not at all sure what this means.
