Greeting-

I installed the current version of fldigi from source, tweaked pskmail settings
to match the port that lsof told me fldigi was holding open and it all seems to
work!  Thanks so much.

Now I have to get my antenna back up in the air and register with a server
somewhere.

I am not keen on sending unencryted login/password info over the air, even if it
is compressed.  I am not really even keen on passing account info to the ham
running the server via the internet.  I think  we need to be smart on how to
handle credentials.  I know most countries prohibit crypto, but maybe we can
come up with some means of passing crypted credetials to server operators who
can not decrypt then, but can put them in place for use on the over the internet
portion of the link.

It is an issue that does need some thinking.  For my own part I will set up a 
special mail account on my mail server for pskmail testing.
