I have used the MIT PC/IP package with some degree of success. I have
largely quit using it, however, in favor of serial protocols like Kermit
because of various problems like:

        1. Can't upload a file unless it already exists.
        2. Can't upload a file unless it is accessible by everyone.
        3. Occasional bit errors.

What I would really like is rcp, rsh, and rlogin on a PC. Let me
know if you find such.
