File Transfer Sco Unix server w/RS232

By bigmoe ·
What are the options for transfering files between a Unix server and a Linux server or workstation using a direct Serial (RS232) connection? Is there a product like Laplink for DOS?

If a conventional NIC/ethernet connection is not an option, you could use (although none of these are really easy to set up):
1) A null modem cable. Convince both machines they have an active modem connection, and use 'uucp' to transfer files. I've also read about establishing a ppp connection via a null modem cable.
2) If both machines have modems, forget the serial cable; use a PPP connection, and transfer the data. Hopefully you wouldn't need to transfer large files.
Whichever way you go, file transfer will be slow.
It may be faster to figure out a way to get an ethernet connection of some sort; I can't tell from your post if you have an early SCO license that doesn't allow you to configure a NIC ??

Use a product like Kermit with a serial connection. It comes built in with a number of file transfer methods.
