1.1: How do I download the toolkit?

After you have read the FWTK software license, if you agree to abide by its restrictions, send a one word -- the word "accepted" -- e-mail message to fwtk-request@nailabs.com.The single word "accepted" (with no quotes) should be the entire *body* of the message (not the subject).  Based upon your acknowledgment of the terms and conditions of TIS FWTK software license, a responding e-mail will be sent to you and will contain the location of the FWTK source code and documentation.
Note that the response e-mail refers to "ftp.tislabs.com"; use "ftp.nailabs.com" instead. Also, your host must support reverse name lookup (name matching an IP address) in order for the FTP to work.

1.4: I am having problem downloading the toolkit...
First, the system that you are downloading from must support reverse name lookup. Second, you must use binary mode for FTP transmission. Third, you must follow the instructions above in order to get the name of the random directory. Finally, since that directory name changes, you must download the toolkit immediately after receiving the confirmation e-mail.

If you still are not able to download it, you can contact fwtk-req-help@nailabs.com.
