WS_FTP is capable of downloading it.. (press the right mouse-button in the
FTP-Server dir. and select FTP-Commands, Retr etc..)

After patching my IBServer, I did a small diff to see what was changed an I
guess I saw the correct ?-) pwd. and the name of the IB internal QA function. I
then tried to log in using this password/username combination to verify my
suspicions but that failed, both from IBConsole and IB_WISQL..
So here comes my question: Is it possible to log into IB with this
username/password combination using a normal application that accesses the
server with e.g. IBObjects? I hope not...
