using kermit for secure file transfer

By sarahmeggs ·
I notice in the current Linux Tips news letter an article about using more secure versions of ftp - wu-ftp and proftp. A different method of filetransfer, just to take a small step sideways, is kermit. I have been using kermit for some time as a daemon - iksd - on both unix and windows (NT and 2000)and as a file transfer mechanism it is superior to ftp in its offerings and actual file transfer. Definitely worth a look at, and great doco, examples, scripts etc. As well, they have a really good support dept via emails.

Check out for downloads, examples, testimonials etc.

Thanks, Gillian
