Hello, thank you for the reply.
Yes, according to Columbia Uni. the software has been downloaded and installed successfully many times, presumably by satisfied customers. Unfortunately, as of summer 2011, they have ceased to support Kermit 95; though they still have it available for download. I am currently in contact with a commercial mirror site at onthehub.com, trying to resolve their try-before-buy download which causes Norton 360 to warn of Trojan Horses! I've even tried re-installation in Safe Mode, but the results are very unstable.
My dilemma is even if Kermit95 works fine on Windows7, can it be made to work easily with HP 95LX Kermit?
The hardware setup was tested with 'Bray++ Terminal v1.9b' software which captures data sent to/from the HP 95LX. As you say, the connection works fine at 9600 baud and single text file transfer is possible, though fiddly.
Regarding 'server mode' and 'directory listing', I have no instructions on how to establish a software connection; and MS-DOS is a very distant memory!
Thanks again for your help.
