6.18. Is there a list of all anonymous FTP sites?

There probably isn't a list of all the world's anonymous FTP sites, but there is one--a behemoth 7-part tome--that is certainly close enough to complete. It should keep you busy for a long, long time.

A typical entry in the FTP list looks like this:

Source : MODERxx.ZIP; old ftp-list
Alias  :

Comment: A CD-ROM farm with 84 NASA image and data discs on-line, /cdrom

It is available via FTP.
