Hi Dwight,

Your in a pickle!  I'm assuming the "firewall" is on your end/side of 
the network/internet?  What some FW admins will do for "special" people, 
is to create an account on the firewall box, allow you to telnet to the 
firewall, login (restricted), and ftp from the firewall to the outside 
world.  The files are then ftp'd to the firewall, and then re-ftp'd to 
your "inside" client destination.  Sending files out to the archive, 
would be just the reverse, ftp'd from client to firewall, then again 
from firewall to the archive.  Not elegant by any means, but it works!

You might be able to bribe your FW Admin with a WM Shatner Autograph, 
chocolate, or get him/her interested in sebhc!

Just Bob!
