SCO Unix, Xenix and ODT General FAQ

Where do I get zmodem for SCO Unix?

This is an ancient post with little relevance to modern systems. Yes, there are still people using modems, but very few, and most of those are home users, not businesses.

Some of the ftp sites listed in the Administrative FAQ (posted at the same time as this FAQ) should have versions that are compiled and known to work on SCO systems. See also tls025. If you want source, try The ZMODEM Developer's Collection. This program also handles X and Y modem transmission and reception.

Zmodem was designed by Chuck Forsberg of Omen Technology (https://www.omen.com/). Omen's Web site includes both freely available and commercial communications software.
