    Well I'm not sure but if it says Please Stop Hammering. I think thats were you have tried to access it too many times and the server has banned you. This can also happen on some download manager that try to create more than one connection. Which in less I'm mistaken the ftp only allows one connection per IP Address.

    Give it some time or wait for an admin to reset the ban thing or whatever needs to be done. Just click on one of the links provided. To download a file though you shouldn't need to login at all. Just click on the link provided. Maybe try on a different browser or copy and paste it into a download manager. Though I would tell it to only create one connection else it will stop downloading. Though I may be wrong about all this. Your welcome to try it. However best thing you can do is to wait for a admin to reply. (InsaneNutter or Nimrod) As they run the ftp so they can give you more details.

    The hammering ban last for one hour (per time its done) and happens when you attempt to make more than 10 connections within 5 minutes to the ftp when your only allowed one. If you using a download manager and making multiple connections, dont, you wont get it any faster. Wait an hour then download in your web browser.
