When a remote computer calls your computer and requests to receive a file, this request can be granted or be denied. The REQUEST option specifies whether the remote computer can request to set up file transfers from your computer. The string REQUEST=yes specifies that the remote computer can request to transfer files from your computer. The string REQUEST=no specifies that the remote computer cannot request to receive files from your computer. REQUEST=no, the default value, is used if the REQUEST option is not specified. The REQUEST option can appear in either a LOGNAME entry, so that the remote computer calls you, or a MACHINE entry, so that you call the remote computer.
