"Works for me."

I forget how long I have had my house LAN - must be over a decade. 
Back then, I decided upon the process I would use to communicate 
from the main (OS/2) system I work on, to the additional systems on 
the LAN.  Ftp is how ALL of my systems are set up.  Until I want 
something ftp does not provide, I see no need to install (and learn 
to use) alternative ways to ship files between systems on a LAN.


I posted because there appeared to be a regression (regarding asking 
for passwords) in the OLPC behavior -- that exists regardless of how 
I described happening to notice it.
