"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.
