A few days ago i inadvertantly mentioned the UK JNT spooled file
transfer service as a neat means of getting data around a
network. A larginsh number of people have asked me for more
information, so

Network Independant File Transfer protocol (aka Blue Book),
normally runs over transport + X.25, but can and does run over
TCP/IP at some sites (using well known port 47).

 Does recovery from connection failure, is spooled etc. Is
widely used in the UK for email, a lot.

A list of implementations can be got from:

r.cooper@gec-b.rutherford.ac.uk

One unix version can be got from SApider Systems, or ask piet
brooks at Cambridge (don't have his address, but requests to
mailgroup@ucl.cs.ac.uk will find him).
