Perhaps even easier to set up is scp/"File Link" with mc.  Just install 
ssh client and server on the Nokia along with mc.  Then, everything is 
ready to go (I think).  You can either "shell link" to the Nokia from 
another computer on your LAN or ssh into the Nokia and then run 
"shell link" under mc on the Nokia.  Assuming you have a ssh server 
running on the computer where the target file(s) resides.

I can hardly live without mc.  I use it to browse/examine files, 
delete/move files, move files from system to system, change 
permissions, examine zip and tarballs, execute programs, backups, etc.  
Just EVERYTHING.  And mcedit is my editor of choice.

Willie, ONWARD!  Through the fog!
