Xmodem requires an 8-bit line to work properly. I'm not familiar enough
with zmodem, but I suspect it's similiar in that respect. Kermit should be
able to use your 7-bit line (Kermit was designed for hostile communication
environments). Try studying all the "set" parameters in Kermit closely to
see if you're missing anything. Also, remember if you're transferring
binary files, you'll need to tell C-Kermit to "set file type binary" or
invoke the nice little frog with the "-i" option. If you don't do that,
then binary files will never make it over correctly, regardless of your
comm line settings.
I've had nothing but success using C-Kermit (but over 8-bit lines) on
my RS-6000. UUCP also works.
