Doesn't the point-n-click updates require an open ftp port?  I've been
doing my updates at home and then pushing the whole thing back to my web
site.  I wouldn't mind doing it the easy way but I'm a bit leary of an
open ftp site.

Truth be told: I haven't really investigated its use once I saw "ftp" as
a requirement.  Can you describe what you did to enable this safely?
