I still have Windows 3.11. I looked at the Terminal program (which I
have never used). It appears that the kermit protocol is supported only
under binary downloads, not text. Most kermit implementations that don't
come from the kermit project are poorly done. To do this with Terminal,
make sure that SETTINGS has kermit as the choice for binary download.
Then use the kermit binary option to download. When it says to give the
receive command, click TRANSFERS, then receive binary.

I would stronly advise, however, that if you want to do kermit
transfers, that you get the DOS MSKERMIT program from the
kermit project. It is free (although documentation is not). See
"";. Note, that for
MSKERMIT 3.15, you must download the 3.14 and 3.15 packages, unpack
3.14, then unpack 3.15 over it, overwriting files.
