     Which brings me to something I would like to get created: FTP to
     spool so that no pswds need to make their way around the network.
     If Bitnet can transfer files to/from Unix, VMS, VM, MVS, CDC, etc
     machines - WITHOUT passwords then Tcp/Ip should be able to send
     files around to local spool systems so that the entire concept of
     FTP pswds can be eliminated.


I would like to know what sorts of access controls are used in Bitnet to
allow or deny a user access to

* a remote file they own
* a remote file they don't own, but is not protected
* a remote file they don't own, but is protected

and how such users are prevented from sabotaging remote disks ...
