You used to be able to pass the username and password in in URL (like
ftp://username ftp site com) but I believe M$ changed this as a
security flaw in IE a few months ago so you can't have things like '@'
in a URL anymore.

I should think either you're going to have to put everything into an
anonymous accessible directory, or you're going to need some sort of
middleware (PHP, CGI script or similar) to handle the FTP transaction
and stream the file to the browser.
