Downloading files from Unix box to PC

Post by Gavin Smi » Fri, 17 Feb 1995 00:31:39



I have a PC using Procomm (as a wyse-50 terminal) to connect to a Unix
box.

How do I download a file (ASCII) onto the PC?  When I try to use the
Procomm dowload function it creates a file 0k long.

Is there an application that will let me do this?

If tis is and improper place to post then please point me in the right
direction.  Thanks in advance.

I logon to the UNIX box, issue the command sz <filename> and sz sends me
the file by zmodem, which I have told ProComm is my default (so it
automatically starts grabbing the file).  Unfortunately, since zmodem
gets the filename of the file to store on the PC end from the filename on
the remote end, I have to rename all the files to 8.3 notation prior to
sending them.

Works for me.

It's called sz (for "send Z-MODEM") - the companion utility to
rz ("receive Z-MODEM). You log on to the UNIX PC from your PC using Procomm
- at the UNIX prompt you issue the command:

                sz <filename>

        UNIX PC will dump that file to whatever your
download directory is set to in Procomm.

These are freeware in wide circulation. If you like email me and I'll
forward them separately to you - they're about 40K each in executable form.

I don't know anything about PCs or Procomm but if its ASCII andy you get stuck you
could always enable log to file and cat the file and wander off and make that cup of
tea.
Alternatively  If you have an account on the box, your not just connected to a bulitin
board or something then you could look for Kermit on the system as I bet procomm
has a kermit mode.  Do man kermit on the unix box for details.  Normally you would
start up a server connection on the unix box and then use the procomm download
function as the client.

You must first initiate the file transfer on the Unix box in a portocol
that the Unix box supports.  Kermit and ZMODEM are common.  The ZMODEM
commands to send and receive files are sz and rz; check the man pages.
For example, type: "sz yourfile.txt" then start the download in Procomm.

The Kermit procedure is a little more complicated but it is also started
at the Unix box, then in Procomm.

Many DOS programs have problems with filenames containing more than one '.'s.
Telix's Z-Modem have, Telemate not.

Perhaps you have to rename (use the 'mv' command) the file before using sz.
