sz/rs or similar cmdline file xfer tool for DOS? (Users)

Hi,
I'm thinking about how to transfer some binary files via serial port that will work even with redirected console. On the 86duino I don't have classic VGA (yet) so I use ctty command to control DOS via serial port. But of course you know it's very limted, only command line tools works, I cannot run my beloved Dos Navigator there. But how to easy transfer some files to avoid often removing of SD card? On linux there are sz/rz Zmodem commandline tools - is there a DOS port? Or something similar?

Perhaps Eric Meyer's Zip file-transfer utility for serial or parallel ports (not related to zip archiving):

https://sites.google.com/site/vdeeditor/Home/vde-files

Link/blurb is near the bottom of the page. Latest v2.22, 2006-04-25.

Requires a null-modem or null-printer cable.

Dunno if it meets your specific needs.

Have you looked at File Maven ?
http://www.resoo.org/docs/dos/free_software/fileman1.htm

Also:
In MSDOS there is a commandline facility included to transfer files through serial/parallel ports.
It is called INTERLINK.
Probably other DOS OSs have something similar.

Not realy sure, what you're looking for:
o Minicom (for the HP 200LX) (with ^Z detection enabled?)
o Shamrock's Teleservice or UniCom: http://www.shamrock.de/dostools.htm
o Encoding Binary Data into Batch Code
o Laura Fairhead's ESC.COM, if DEBUG is available

The key feature is that it must work from command line - not menu UI because I work on redirected DOS console, not on a real screen. Second, it should use standard Zmodem protocol to be able to send/receive files with simple Windows hyperterminal or similar, using FTDI USB serial cable...

There is a DOS port. Chuck Forsberg, who created Zmodem and RZ/SZ made one. Take a look in ftp://omen.com/pub/zmodem/ You want dsz.zip or dszexe.zip

NB : it's shareware.

Datalight ROM-DOS Single User Version has it.
The last freeware version was 7.1 R4.20.1588 from 2006.
No ROM-DOS version is freeware now. Current version is
7.1 R4.20.1594, it costs $55 and only documentation can
be downloaded without paying.
