This machine is *not* behind the firewall. It it were, I'm not sure they
could do what they want to do? They want to ftp to other machines on the
campus. I realize this is insecure, but I'm not sure what else to do
with a DOS machine. Is there an ssh client for DOS? Anyway, how much
damage could a hacker do if they got access to a DOS machine? If they're
very sophisticated, I assume they could do some damage. I'm sure the
security guys will eventually find this box. I warned Mary Tang that might
happen. Our only other option is a Zip drive. Are there drivers for Zip
drives under DOS?
