>No, you don't need permission
I'm just not used to having FTP links work while using IE. Strange, I suppose. Anywho, it logged in correctly, I put it in the directory titled PS_User_Guide. I hope it's helpful. Note that it'll take me awhile to ul it, given that the dirth of communications companies around here leaves me with only a 56k modem.
The directories have weird names only to prevent deleters (they can't delete anything if they don't get to the directory).
If you're using CuteFTP, try copying this address and starting CuteFTP. It will connect automatically.
[url]ftp://126.96.36.199/ PRN / AUX / /Something/ Com1 /AWFUL/[/url]
Or just copy and paste it to your Site Manager. You'll need to use anonymous login.
That's rather uncanny that the PDF shrank after zipping. I'd always figured that PDF used some sort of internal compression when going through the Distiller. Oh well, another lesson learned, I suppose.
