What about using encryption on the connection and storing the secret
in a well-known file that only the user can read? Encryption code is
already available, the method will work on all operating systems and
it should be trivial to implement.

Of course, on Win9x the file protection isn't that good but then,
anyone using Win9x and expecting security can't really be helped. Its
still better than nothing as most of the network attacks are defeated.
