    Whenever I try to retrive POKE&GO1.DOC from micro:
    I get "File not accessable. Invalid character in filename."
    The ampersand???

Peter, you hit the nail right on the head.  Some characters are
reserved under the TOPS-20 operating system we use here at SIMTEL20.
The solution is to include a Control-V just ahead of such characters
when you tell FTP what file you want.  In this case it would be:

MICRO:POKE^V&GO1.DOC

(where the ^V is a control-V, of course).  The control-V is a "quote
next character" command.
