When using Krusader or Konquerer or such to connect to ftp://myhost.tld it starts trying anonymous access, and then ask me for my password. the problem is, myhost blocks me after 10 failed attempts to login for my ip, so after transferring some files i need to reset the ipfilter

Try using ftp://user:password@myhost.tld as URL..?

I don't recall having that starting anonymously problem with Konqueror on Kubuntu, but now I'm using gFTP on Ubuntu 9.10, it's definitely not a problem.

I also used gFTP on Kubuntu. It worked fine.
