    There are still some instances where I get multiple password prompts when
    accessing files via FTP and not using IFTP. As shown below, DIR works
    correctly but COPY does not. It doesn't matter whether the usernmae and
    asteriisk are in an FTP.CFG file or specified on the command line.

    Nothing I can do about that (short of eliminating FTP altogether and always
    requiring IFTP). Any non-IFTP action requires multiple logins &
    disconnects; in the case of a DIR it's two, but with COPY it's a half-dozen.
    It's not possible for the FTP connection code to know when a random command
    is going to stop attempting connections.

    So I guess I'm fortunate to have been prompted only twice on that COPY
    command!

    OK, I'll use IFTP in my batch files, and won't be too surprised if I'm
    prompted more than once in casual FTP commands.

    Thanks,

    Howard
