 It's not possible for me to use a different username as I'm not in control
 of the server. Having an ftp user account with the username anonymous and
 a specific password is a valid use case (it's not a smart thing to do, but

 from bookmarking an ftp site that is set up in this way for no valid

 To be clear, I'm not attempting to perform an anonymous login, I'm trying
 to log in as the user "anonymous" with a specific password. Cyberduck
 prevents me from entering a password for the user "anonymous" and I have
 no access to any other user accounts on the server, so there is no way for
 me to bookmark this server in the current version of cyberduck

 or any password.
