Re: Remote execution / application migration

even set top boxes need proper authentication. much of the strong security software is nobbled for the ftp release because of the `it would be funny if it were not so sad' US encryption export rules. fixing that is up to american citizens. that isn't necessarily the reason rcmd and rstyx don't authenticate: it is admittedly hard to decide sometimes which things in the ftp distribution really are demos and which are meant to be taken as full system services. >>I don't think this was ever the issue; it's pretty clear that if you can after i posted the note, i thought you'd say that (because it's true), but the Inferno method does differ significantly, even so, from Plan 9 exec because the remote architecture can be one the local system knows nothing about, and the load operator integrates the code more tightly into the remote application once loaded. i rely on these effects in my application.
