when i want to write somethin like [email protected]
nothin appears on the screen
but when i push enter he goes on and said that

its designed behavior... so people around you can't see your passwords.

Depends on the server. it may not allow anonymous logins. A security feature of a lot of ftpd's is to not tell a user that the username is invalid, thereby not confirming anything about potential usernames a would be cracker could use.
