In the USA, the export restricted server makes some use of information
contained in the name space (I think the .edu domain is limited to
the USA and Canada) and a list of OK sites.  So for example if you
are coming from a .com site, your site would have to be explicitly
listed in the approved site file maintained by the server administrator.
When you retrieve a file, a series of questions are presented that
ask about your situation and your willingness to abide by the export
restrictions.  A statement detailing the export restriction is presented
and then (finally) you actually ftp the file.
