DS#9 - Kermit

<< Prev Disk


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.
