For of you having difficulties accessing the clogged PictureTel FTP site
with a web browser:

Here is a special nice trick (originally figured out by Paul Jones) how to
still access the clogged PictureTel FTP site with a web-browser: Use the
following URL instead (it works!)

With kind regards

Martin Euchner.
