What sets Kermit 95 apart from other Windows communications packages?
Its unique combination of security options, connection methods, protocols, character-sets, customizability, and scriptability, plus the sheer number and accuracy of its terminal emulations.
And we don't only "do Windows" -- we also provide compatible software for Linux, Free BSD, Open BSD, Solaris, AIX, HP-UX, VMS, and lots of other platforms.
Based on Open SSH 3.0.2p1, K95's built-in SSH client (for Windows only, not OS/2) supports SSH versions 1.3, 1.5, and 2.0 and with a full range of authentication methods including password, public/private key pairs, Kerberos 4, Kerberos 5 GSSAPI, and SRP, as well as with external SSH agents.An intelligent phone-list that understands the difference between international, long-distance, local, toll-free, and internal PBX calls, and adjusts itself according to your location; that allows multiple phone numbers for a single service; and that can be told how many times and how frequently to redial if the connection is not made. Tektronix, Sixel, Re GIS, and other graphics emulations are not presently included. Terminal emulation features include: In addition to its new built-in FTP and HTTP clients, Kermit 95 includes the following file-transfer protocols and features for use within terminal sessions over any of its connection methods -- serial or network, secure or clear-text: The fastest and most advanced implementation of the Kermit protocol available anywhere: Sliding windows, long packets, control-character unprefixing, locking shifts, character-set translation, an update feature, recovery of failed transfers from the point of failure, automatic per-file text/binary mode switching, recursive directory-tree transfer, timestamp preservation, Kermit Streaming Protocol, and much more.Kermit 95's command screen is similar to a Windows Command Window, allowing you to obtain directory listings; copy, rename, and delete files; create and remove directories; search for text in files; display files on the screen, and so forth, but with more commands and options than Windows, a friendlier interface (file and keyword lists on demand, file and keyword completion, built-in help) and full scriptability.The source code has been released with the Open Source Simplified BSD License, except for any modules containing code that is proprietary to other companies.Internet and serial communications for Microsoft Windows® 95, Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows NT (4.0 and later), Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, Windows 7, IBM OS/2, and (with some effort) Windows Embedded Standard from the Kermit Project at Columbia University, offers you text-based terminal connections to Unix, VMS, and many other kinds of hosts, allowing you to interact directly with their shells and applications, to transfer files, and, if desired, to automate interactions and file transfers with its built-in platform- and transport-independent scripting language.
