[Spice_discussion] NAIF FTP

A new FTP processor was installed on the NAIF server (naif.jpl.nasa.gov)
on Wednesday 4/03 around 1:00 p.m. PDT to meet new JPL security
requirements. (This occurred after a two-day unavailability of the
server.) The new FTP server is "vsftp", which replaces "wu-ftp." A
consequence of this change is that some ftp operations result in
slightly different displays; this could affect anyone who is using
scripts to obtain SPICE data from the naif server.
The NAIF system administrator says he expects this new ftp processor to
remain in place for the foreseeable future--no further changes are
We regret the inconvenience to NAIF's customers caused by this change.
