I know nothing about this server (even where it is), but if it's a binary of
my program FITCH for the Macintosh, that can be obtained in the binary
executables for Macintosh of PHYLIP.  There would be no reason to password
protect it, though it's not great to distribute it shorn of all reasonable
documentation.

But then, it may be some other program ...
