Your problem is use of the house/doorway metaphor where it does not fit. Even if you could make a case (which I'll not address here) that allowing someone to log into a server does not automatically grant the right to download files to which they have been given read access, you certainly cannot make such a case for an FTP server, which is dedicated to allowing downloads and/or uploads of accessible files. The fact of its being an FTP server that allows the user access counts as the "Please download" sign.
