    Hey,

    is there an easy way to download from archives.thebbs.org since the ftp
    support has been canceled on major browsers?

    directly via FTP client i get no directory listing. I guess it is a
    tricky permission system that allows direct access to the links via
    website only.

    Regards,
    Mindsurfer / Stephan

    This is an interesting question, I just went to the site, and tried downloading any file using the browser and none worked, I tried with filezilla and couldn't download any either.

    Is the site actually still hosting those files? maybe the ftp server is not working right now?

    it still works in the tor browser. but who knows for how long. it would
    be nice if they would just link via http/https links. Any idea what was
    the initial reason for ftp links in the web?

    I don't know for sure, but my guess is that FTP allowed partial download/resume functionality where as downloading via HTTP didn't/doesn't.
