com file transfers in Unix 11 Years, 8 Months ago  
Have the app up and running to emulate my now EOLd wyse 60s. Very cool, by the way. Now i want to know if I can transfer files using the setup on a serial line to transfer files from an SCO openserver to the XP box that is running the AT 4.0.1. I know that I can invoke the ftp while I am logged on, can I use that?

You can only use FTP if you have a network connection. Over a serial line, this can only be done if you've connected through something like dialup networking.

If you're using a direct serial connection or direct modem dialup through Absolute, your best chance of transferring files is through zmodem. If your host has the proper support, you can use

sz <filename>

to send a file from the host to the client or

rz

to send a file from the client to the host.

If your host does not have rz or sz, you might need to install some additional software on the host side.

Ok, we are on the same page, that is what I have been reading through other sources. Found a copy of the rz/sz for SCO on the net as it doesn't seem to have come with all of the skunkware. Dis the rawwrite, have the disk, wish me luck.
