I hope this isn't too far off topic:
Does any one know of a way to upload an ASCII text file TO a UNIX host using
We have an application running on our host (Sun OS 4.1.3) which takes its
input from the user in the form of text, line by line. Up to now, users have
been dialing into the host, starting the application program and using the
ASCII file transfer function built into communications software such a
Procomm (one presses the <PAGE UP> key to start the transfer.)
The application processes each line up to our end of file character,
With more and more of our users having access to the Internet many of
them would like to connect via the Internet instead of dialing in.
Is there a telnet (or some such) program that runs on a PC that would
allow us to do that? Jianqing Hu's Simpterm program, for example, allows
downloads but not uploads.
By the way, cutting and pasting from another application are out; we need
something more foolproof than that.
