ahh... now I see what your saying.

I have my server setup to disallow root login from console. I login as
user, then su to root. When I run # printenv |sort, This dispalys the
env varibale for me, not root.

How do I set|view env for root?..., specifically FTP_PASSIVE_MODE=YES

OT... Kelley, btw...Baxter is cool :) I had a Pekingese once. For
Halloween, I shaved off all her hair except for a 2" mohawk
head-2-tail. I'll have to find the picture to send you some day.
