How do I dial in to a remote server and transfer files?


Hi, I got a bit of a dilemma.

I have one linux (remote) box sat with mgetty watching a serial port, connected to a modem at one site, and another linux box at another site. using cu, i can connect to the rmote machine and look around, but i need to be able to transfer files. I found a tutorial which stated that "~%take <filename>" should get files and ""%put <filename>" should upload files, but i get permission errors, even if im root on both machines. can any one help?

sorted it now.

i installed kermit on both machines, ran kermit on the local machine, set line /dev/ttyS1 (first serial port) set speed 19200 (not tried faster yet), then dial <number> to connect to the other machine.
logged in to the remote machine and ran kermit, then used get and send to receive and send files.

hope this information helps somebody else.
