Did you try the help file?(this is from the win95 version, yours may not
support this..)
"To receive a file from a remote computer
1. Use the software on the remote computer to send...
2. On the Transfer menu, click Recieve File
3. Type path of folder ... to store the file
4. [ select recieving Protocol from drop down list ]"
IMHO the windows terminal program sucks; I just get frustrated using it( plus
no colour). I would suggest a DOS terminal program, or looking for a better
windows terminal program.
