8. Can I use my AOL login/password when FTPing from outside of AOL?

No (well, not yet).  The Internet-connected machines at AOL do not have
access back to the systems where the membership data is kept, so there is
currently no way to verify login/password information on external connects.

:-\ Ok. Again, AOL is stupid.
