This one goes back to October, sorry... Very busy here!
: I need to connect to approximately 360 voice mail servers (running

The logs you sent show that C-Kermit is sending even parity. Is this
appropriate in the failing cases?
The packet log shows that the remote Kermit (the unknown PulsePoint one)
doesn't like I-packets. If you upgrade your C-Kermit version 7.0 to
C-Kermit 8.0, you can tell it to:
set send i-packets off
But in any case, your packet log shows that the remote (PulsePoint) Kermit
doesn't receive even one packet it understands, so my guess is that even
parity is not appropriate in this case.
