Wanted: S/W which supports Xmodem protocols

Post by John Big » Fri, 11 Oct 1991 18:21:35

I was wondering if anyone can help me.....

I need to communicate with a non UNIX system which only supports the
Xmodem file transfer protocol. I don't know very much about Xmodem and
was hoping that there is some software (public domain or otherwise) to
run on a SPARC station2 which supports this protocol.




1. kermit 6.1.193 Beta.05 no xmodem protocol


i tried to install c-kermit 6.1.193 Beta.05 on sun sparc solaris 2.5.1
the reason is binary file transfer over serial line with xmodem protocol.
this is the only available protocol on the other site.

i tried -DXYZ_INTERNAL, but i got errors on linking step. see below.
this seems to be a bug.
so i tried with external programms rx and sx
receiving files worked now. but not transmitting. i did
a truss -t exec and i can see, that kermit forkes, if i try to
receive a file, but nothing happens, if keying in the transmit command.
a second bug ?

any ideas how solve this problem ?
