no-one else has replied to this, probably because it's a Kermit problem.
i use Kermit 3.15 all the time to download files from Lynx,
but i have Kermit in my XT running simple DOS.
i don't use Windoze, but presumably you can suspend it in favor of DOS,
then do your downloading directly into a DOS file.

if everything is correct, there would be no problem ... (smile).

so far, so good ...

... not so good!  this has never happened to me.

there can be major problems if you try running different programs
both of which try to control/emulate a terminal:
eg i have to suspend Screen in order to use Kermit to download.
so the problem may be due to a conflict between Windoze & Kermit.

anyone else have thoughts?  DK?  TD?
