Hi Matthias, Yes, it supports digest authentication. tsNet will automatically use the most secure method the server supports unless you force it to use basic authentication. Regards. Charles > On 8 Mar 2018, at 1:11 am, Matthias Rebbe via use-livecode >

Hi Bob Yes, that works - since the file is tiny, just trying to download it and seeing what you get works too (not a good strategy in general, I agree). The problem was the overwriting of the file - Richard G and other folks have pointed out that it would be extremely dangerous in the whole

I don't know about the 9 puzzle but I suspect it's like the 15 puzzle. The 15 puzzle and Rubics Cube have parity. If the 15 is out of parity it can never be solved. The same for Rubics Cube, if you say switch 2 edge pieces or rotate 1 corner piece it's not solvable. Ralph DiMola IT Director
