A simple alternative for exchanging files thru WLAN between old Macs (Hotline server and WLAN bridge) and new Macs (Nostalgia). Sorry to say, that Nostalgia doesn‘t like Mac resource forks too, like FTP.
So use "OldHex", a BinHex tool for OS X for encoding files before sending and don't zip the files.

URLs for other servers? The Wikia link of outstanding Hotline servers in the Hotline entry has a few that are still up. Not all of the links work today, though several do.

That seems to be the most current listing of Hotline servers. If you know of others, that Wikia page seems like the best place to share them.
