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?)

Access permissive means that if a directory has NO ACL at all then anyone
can access files in that directory, otherwise only people/groups
authorized by the ACL can get access.  Non-permissive means that access to
directories with no ACL is impossible over the network.

In addition, there is a bug with ACL that prevents file-access to directories
using the AUTHOR ACL property (ACL login is meant to give the user access to
those directories that s/he owns, but due to said bug ACL login becomes a noop
because the user is logged out immediately after they are logged in).

    - "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!

If no protection is wanted, don't use fs:initialize-secure-server.
Simply enabling services should be sufficient (though also check out
the SECURE SUBNETS entry in your SITE namespace object).
