While I worked for Tandem, we had a nifty tool named NETDUP which allowed us, to transfer files between a remote node, and our home node WITHOUT the need to have remote passwords installed. The trick was done by PROGIDing the NETDUP tool to an ID, that had remote passwords set for all systems world wide. OK - you think, this can be done by a PROGIDed FUP as well? That is correct, BUT this FUP would allow you to do everything, the owner of the FUP object is allowed to do, including PURGE, PURGEDATA etc. There also is no limitation on the direction: FUP allows to 'pull' or 'push' files.
