      Hi, Harvey & Frank

      Thanks for the additional lines and work. I've never wrote or worked
      with a clip that used NTP's encryption. I'll look the clip over and
      read up some more. Children are home from college so I'm doing other
      things. Thanks again.

      I would assume if you share a computer or stay connected to a LAN
      you might want to use encryption, considering my FTP.ini contains
      usernames and passwords for several websites. I don't worry about it
      on my computer but I thought I'd mention that the clip was not
      secure. Some people are more concerned about that than others. And
      then I thought, why not try to make it more secure? Others who
      regularly use encryption might give more useful information.
