I was reading very carefully the documentation page on the GNU Hurd website
titled 'Small Examples on Using Translators'. The part of the Translator
/hurd/hello was exactly as the text said. Very promising intro to the
Translators universe.

I have questions on the Transparent FTP with the /hurd/ftpfs translator. Cos
is short, i paste here the text in the website:

Transparent FTP

We already setup a a transparent FTP translator for you at /ftp:

With it you can easily access public FTP via the file system, for example the 
one from the GNU project:

$ ls /ftp://ftp.gnu.org/
But you can also do this very easily yourself:

$ # Setup the translator on the node ftp:
$ settrans -c ftp: /hurd/hostmux /hurd/ftpfs /
and you can access FTP sites via the pseudo-directory ftp:, for example with

$ ls ftp://ftp.gnu.org/
What you do here is setting up the translator /hurd/hostmux on ftp: and passing 
it the translator /hurd/ftpfs to use for resolving accesses as well as / as 
additional path component.
---------------------------------Documentation End---------------

The 'test' work exactly as the text say, and i did ls on the GNU FTP, but i 
want to introduce here my
question: Can this be done also with a ftp server that requires an user name
and password?. I have my account with user name and password and do well
"traditional ftp". Can i get too have this Transparent FTP that the
marvelous concept of the Translator allows?.

Thanks very much, in advance.

Jose Luis.
