tcubvm.is.tcu.edu doesn't have anonymous FTP. You can send download
commands to the listserv which will "mail" you the files you want. Send
a message to firstname.lastname@example.org with the body of the message
saying "INDEX SCOUTS-L" to get a listing of the files, and instructions
on how to download the file.
Don't forget, you can get a listing of everybody on the mailing list,
change the options of the mailing list, get archived messages, and all
sorts of neat stuff if you send the listserv the correct command. You
can get a Reference Card by sending mail to email@example.com
and putting INFO REFCARD in the body of the message.
Another way is to FTP onto Pluto which has many of the same files. The
FTP address is pluto.utdallas.edu. I recommend getting a file listing
from the listserv because it has the description of the files, and
then FTPing the files from Pluto.
