[REBOL] Special characters in ftp

From: swhite::ci::bloomington::mn::us at: 25-Aug-2006 9:33

I want to ftp something between two computers on our internal network. Normally this would be a one-liner and easy, and I have done it before. Now, the user ID that I must use (so says the network administrator) contains the "-" character, or, alternatively, I can use one that contains the "/" character. In either case, the ftp does not work. Of course I would expect it not to, because of the special characters. The question is, I thought I read somewhere, in the distant past, that it was possible to use special characters in the ftp url with some sort of escape character, or something. Does anyone know if this is possible? Thank you. Steven White City of Bloomington 1800 W Old Shakopee Rd Bloomington MN 55431-3096 USA 952-563-4882 (voice) 952-563-4672 (fax)
