    inet1 and ftp security

    i am uploading a small text file to web server using inet1 and ftp. it works but - i've read that this is a security risk. am not concerned about the file that is being uploaded, but do care that my user name and password may be stolen. any comments on the security risk and is there a better way to do this. thanks - sjt

    What/where have you read about the security risk?

    Have you looked here? It uses API calls instead of the Inet control.
