WAOT: ZModem


This question is WAOT (Way Out Of Topic). But this is my last hope!

I'm running a BBS System on Linux, using DOSEMU! Now, normally when a user
wants to upload or download a file using a modem, the ZModem protocol would
start, and the data would be send to the COM port.

But I've also allowed Telnet users to 'call' my BBS System! But a telnet
'caller' is beeing logged in to the BBS System as a local user! So the BBS
System writes to the screen, instead of to a COM port.

Now the problem is, that if someone wants to download or upload a file, he
won't be able to use the ZModem protocol, because the ZModem protocol can't
write his data to the screen. (Normally, that would be useless).

Now my question is, is there any way I can let DOSEMU know that the telnet
'caller' is a modem caller, (so that I can set DOSEMU.CONF to emulate COM1
as /dev/ttySx)

Or is there a Linux or DOS ZModem that can write to the screen?

Any help would be appreciated!

Mortal Obligation sysop!
Why Linux?
1. In France Linux outsells Windows 98, and it is looking like it may be
true in the USA too, but we do not yet have enough evidence to tell for
2. Linux has a technical superiority that Microsoft just cannot match.
3. Microsoft has taught people to accept crashing computers and loss of
work. There are reports that even early versions of Linux running for more
than 3 years now without ever stopping.
