This isn't an anonymous server... need to use the login they gave me.
Would an rsync work without a shell on the other end?  I haven't seen it

Current OS is Debian, but will likely be reloaded since we are going to reload (hack into?) the server that is currently not doing anything.  Previous server manager won't give us login and password, so as far as that goes (I think) is to reload the entire OS.  I do have physical access to the hd and can pull it out to modify the /etc/passwd (?) file if that is all it takes to do something like that.
