I haven't done much with zmodem the last few years, but I seem to
recall that it took a bit of tweaking of parameters to get it to
function reliably. Zmodem was designed for the BBS world with direct
8-bit clean connections. It seems to work well there. Kermit was
designed to work over almost any connection, with speed a secondary
consideration. I now use kermit when I can and use zmodem when
connecting to a machine that doesn't have a working kermit.

This seems to be getting off-topic for lynx-dev.
