A couple of years ago as we prepared a release I asked about this and as best I know we didn't get anything settled. Sure, it's hardly a major issue but I do like to se examples actually do what they a re supposed to be examples for!

So, the obvious first question is whether anyone knows a suitable ftp site we can point to in this example? A possibly more interesting question is whether anyone has ever updated the FTPClient code to handle sftp; I'm taking a look around but can't see anything that stands out to me. If so, then the range of possible sites for the example is considerably wider. If not, well, now is not the time to add it but it sure would be nice to have all our internet stuff bang up to date and fully buzzword compliant.
