We have been using Kermit ever since the ST came out to
transfer files between the ST and an Atari 800XL or 130XE. You need an
850 Interface and a null modem cable (pins 1 & 7 straight, pins 2 & 3
crossed), which you can easily make up yourself, plus Kermit on the ST
(see ST library) and away you go! Send to the ST at 9600 baud or back to
the 8-bit at 2400 baud, it is simple and effective. Kermit can also be
used as a terminal program in its own right to communicate with remote
computers via modem. There is also a copy of AMODEM on the disk, one of
the best of the public domain terminal programs complete with
documentation. This is a single sided disk in the 'specials' because of
its specialised interest.
AUTOBOOT without BASIC for KERMIT. Run AMODEM from BASIC after
installing RS232 handler.
