netting xl1200(8.0.2) to 3650(7.2)

The scene so far:
The xl1200 is running 8.0.2 and the '50 is back at 7.2.
The 1200 has no problem accessing the '50, either
during file copies or when loading objects or images
from s-products on the 1200.
Whenever I try to do the same on the '50 (eg. try
to load an object residing on the 1200 into s-geometry
on the '50, a login request happens that I can't get
past (error indicates can't access the requested
directory-could be ACL but :access-permissive t should
over-ride that shouldn't it?)
- "enable services all" was issued
- I tried configuring a file server, setting up
passwords etc. (fs:initialize-secure-server :access-
permissive t :login required nil) is how I started
it up, but that didn't help. I noticed that remote
initialize: remote login enabled showed as nil, but
it says the same on the '50 and there was not probs
accessing it. How do I set remote login as a
"permitted service"? Do I need to have a configured
file server set up? (I erased the file-server
directories on both machines when that didn't help
the problem...) At this time, the two units are
%100 friendly, and no security measures are required.
- Mike Western mentioned that there was some flag on
the 1200 that was backwards (relatively...), but
he wasn't sure exactly what it was.
What I need is to set up these two machines so they
have free access to each other for file transfers via
NFILE or TCP (or any other way) without any hindrance
from passwords etc. There seems to be complicatios
perhaps due to the difference of versions (8.0.2 vs.
7.2). Any suggestions? Thanks!

It sounds to be like you don't want to restrict access, in which case
initializing the secure server is the last thing you want to do.
It seems more likely to me that you have some problem in your namespace.
If the 50's object, for instance, has the triple FILE TCP TCP-FTP but not
FILE TCP NFILE, then file access will be attempted using the FTP protocol,
which requires login. If this is the case, delete that tuple and add NFILE.
(You can determine how the connection is being attempted by selecting Peek
and clicking on File.)
What Mike alluded to is the most likely culprit of all: the default status
of Internet hosts changed from trusted to not trusted with Genera 7 ECO #2.
You should make sure that the Site namespace object has
Secure Subnets: INTERNET 184.108.40.206
(substitute in the first two fields from your own Internet address).
