Client "remembering" Id and password?

Once I have connected with a valid ID and password, I am then able to disconnect and reconnect and gain access to the virtual root without even entering my user name or password! Is that info being retained and re-entered by the client without my knowledge?

No, for each new connection the user will have to specify a username and password. You can see this in the server's log file. Every time a new connection is made the username /password is requested.

However keep in mind that many FTP applications remember the username/password (on the client side) so the user does not have to enter it again. But this has nothing to do with the server.
