This is a new trick in the java DriveWire server.  It's not really an
FTP client on the OS-9 side, it uses the IP stack in the server
machine for connection to the ftp server.  But the end effect is that
you can easily FTP files in and out of your Coco.

rzsz does work over the virtual serial ports, but there are much
easier ways to transfer files.  In the upcoming release, you'll be
able to do things like:

dw copy /dd/FILES/something.txt C:\folder\something.txt

easy as that :)
