I am using Procomm on a PC and a modem to call my unix server (Sun).
It is working OK for terminal use, but not for file transfer.
The problem is that 8 bits characters should be used on the input to
Sun, but the terminal server (I guess) is jaming the 8. bit from Sun.
So I switch Procomm from 8 none to 7 even after transfer command is given
on Sun. Then I up/download.
In .kermrc at Sun I have "set parity even".
After transfer I go back to 8 none in Procomm to give new commands to Sun.
It works, but it is not very practical.
What I want is to tell kermit in Procomm that I want 7 bit transfer,
even if Procomm itself is set to 8 none.
Does anybody have a good solution for how to get kermit work? Or should
I rather use one of the other protocols (Xmodem...) Procomm offers?
If so, where do I find a good Xmodem... package for Sun.
Thanks a lot to you who read this and to you who might have a good idea.
