WARNING! As with the use of dialin (see "helpme dialin"), you use these utilities entirely at your own risk. Due to the wide variety of both computers and communication programs, we can not and will not guarantee support the use of these programs beyond their availability.
To find out how to dialin to our system, see "helpme dialin".

Local> set port flow control dsr

Local> c r hpux.scudc.scu.edu

If you did not enter your correct login name for the HP's when you initially connected, press return at the Password: prompt and then enter your correct login name and password as prompted.
Invoking Zmodem with the -e option (sz -e filename ...) also increases reliability, but will also slow down the transfer. You might also try playing with the 'Subpacket Length' and the 'Window size' parameters of 'sz' (see the man page on 'sz' for more details):
