Transfer a File with Kermit

You can transfer files between a PC and a host running Kermit protocol. If the Kermit program on your host has a server mode, you can also use this mode to transfer files.

To transfer a file with Kermit protocol

  1. Log in to the host and invoke the host Kermit program by typing KERMIT (or type in the string used by your particular version of Kermit) at the host prompt.
  2. Prepare to transfer the file by typing either RECEIVE or SEND <filename> at the host's Kermit prompt. (These commands are from the host's point of view, so be sure to use RECEIVE when sending files to the host, and SEND when receiving files from the host.)
  3. Start Reflection and log on to the host computer as usual.
  4. Open the Transfer dialog box as follows:
