Zterm File Transfer Steps

Zterm File Transfer Steps

To set up Zterm, select the Dial Menu's Directory command and click the New button. Fill out all the boxes as if the HP Palmtop is a BBS, simply leaving out any phone number. Use the settings shown in step 1 below. Follow these steps:

  1. 1. Configure both systems.
Set both the HP and Zterm to: Baud: 57,600 Interface: Com1; Parity: None; Data Bits: 8; Stop Bits: 1.

  1. 2. Send files
To send files from the HP 100/200LX, connect the Palmtop to the Mac with the cable, turn on both units, and launch Zterm on the Mac and DataComm on the HP. From the Mac, select HP Connection from the Dial menu. After a moment you should see Direct Connect HP 100 on the Zterm screen. Under Zterm's File menu, select the Receive Files... Zmodem option.

Next on the Palmtop, press (MENU) File Protocol and select ZMODEM. Press (F10) (OK) and (MENU) File Send to send a file. Use the dialog box to select your file, or check the Send All box to send all files in the given directory. Press (F10) (OK) and the files will be transferred to your Mac.

Zterm's File Menu also provides Transfer Convert options for file translation of items such as text files. For non-text files, you should leave the setting at Binary Data. You can also convert text files into other word processing formats. Let's say you want to convert a MEMO text file into MS-Word format. Go to Zterm's File Menu, select Settings Menu, pick General Preferences and select Smart MacBinary. Then select the MS-Word option to convert text documents to Word format.
