Comment Kermit is more than a protocol (Score 2, Informative) 356

Kermit is much more than a file transfer protocol.

Besides Serial communication, it can handle many network protocols: FTP, Telnet, HTTP, SSH to name a few. It can use the telnet comm control, to handle network attached modems. It has a macro/programming language. For those jobs where one needs to recognize success or failure of a transfer, this is a boon.

And in the Windows version it has a large number of terminal emulations.

Just a satisfied customer.
