Sullivan Beck,

Ease of use is important to me and most everyone
 ftp://ftp.cise.ufl.edu/pub/mirrors/apache

There is no need to password protect something that u want everyone to have
access to. Th eonly peice of advice i can give is that if you are going to
have an ftp mirror istead of the httpd mirror is that u allow anoymous
access. And on the login window that comes up when someone goes to the
mirror that they need to log in anonimusly instead of them wasting there
time trying to guess how to get in. If you were to follow what is recommened
http://www.apache.org/info/how-to-mirror.html.   It is easy to set up and
much faster than ftp.

I followed the guidlines as stated and have had no problems at all.
