    I have read a paper and would like to download some files for a school project. The description given is:

    "some images can obtained by anonymous ftp from [email protected] under the directory /pub/shading"

    How do I go about downloading these files? I have a FTP program so need a hostname, username and password

    So why not email the address in question, and then ask them for the information you'll need to access the FTP site?

    You need to double check the information from whoever told you that [email protected] was an FTP address. As lochlomonder said, that is an email address. It is not an FTP server address.
