I have no idea why this would not work before .. exactly why I was
whining so loudly here.  This should have been a no-brain try &
succeed once thing.

I just now tried ftp.lt.freebsd.org, spam at noisp.com as the password
and in like flynn.

Bizarre ... the email address I am posting this from was not accepted !!

Yep .. I knew WSFTP95 does not have resume; sorry about the confusion
in my posts.  I was using this to establish an FTP connection to check
that I could & to get a speed test out of it for time estimates at
different sites.  It's such an old and reliable application & I know
it pretty well I didn't want to confuse myself (moreso than I usually
am!) by bumping around several new interfaces.

THX for the smartFTP link; I'm collecting a whole set of freebie ftp
utilities; resume was not so critical before as it has suddenly
become.  I haven't DL'd anything larger than about 90 or 100 MB in the
last two years.

My cable cnnxn currently runs about 100 MB/ hour with some varience
(~29 - 32 bps is norm) ... so, y'all will be crazed ... er, graced
with my newbie install attempts Real Soon Now; I expect by Monday
depending on other things I am trying to get done.

I know all about burning an ISO with something like nero ... that is
exactly what I use; I have a fully licensed personal copy of 5.5 that
hasn't failed me yet for many IOS's, including linux installs.  Nero
rocks !

I have ftp.  I am happy.

Paldies!  ;-)
