PC file Xfer help

Post by Don McClanaha » Mon, 11 Apr 1994 01:32:50

We are running the UnixWare Application Server (1.1) at a central
office and want to receive Word Perfect files from approx. 50+
branch offices across the state that have PCs.  I was thinking that
the most cost effective way to do this is for the central office
Application Server to use UUCP after hours (using modems and dial up
lines) to transfer the WP files from the unattended PCs.

Another alternative we have discussed is using PromComm Plus on the
PCs and having the Unix system dial (using "cu") the PCs (who whould
have to be in "host" mode) and do a file transfer using Zmodem.  I
would think UUCP would be a better solution.

We also have a Novell 3.11 at the central office and it is on the
same LAN as the Application Server.  I assume that the UUCP route
using UnixWare would be the best solution.

I have heard that UUCP is avaliable for PC's but I don't know where
to get it or what the PC hardware & software requirements are.  If
a public domain version is avaliable, I would like to know where
to find it and to how it compares to any commercial versions.  If
you have this information or if you have implemented this type of PC
file transfer using Unix or NewWare, I would appreciate hearing


1. HELP:Need PC Term/File Xfer Program for PC6300

Situation: We have AT&T PC6300s hooked up by serial ports to a
central 3B2-600 (ATT Unix SVR3.2.3)  The present terminal emulator/
file transfer program we have (PC52/PC Interface) will not work correctly
under Dos 5.0.  The Powers That Be are thinking about switching to
Kermit (yuck!) or ICE 10 ($$$$$!).

Question: Is there a better package out "there" that will do full terminal
emulation, including arrow keys and function keys, is easy to set up,
and won't bust the bank to buy a couple dozen copies of?  Even a semi-
kludge like using sz and rz would work.

Please direct responses to the address below.  Your help would be greatly
