MACLINK-SE COMMS

We have an SE which runs a programme that does not have an equivalent on a pc.  We wisk to transfer the output to a pc which we normally use.  Jow do we do this?  We have Null modem com=nnection between them and the SE has MacLink on it if that helps but we do not have the PC part of MacLink.  As this is the only thing we use the SE for its not worth spending much cash to solve it.  The pc has various comms packages available. Perhaps we need to "fool" the SE into thinking it's talking to a MAC?  Any ideas?  Otherwise we may have to buy a HS drive for the SE and use that to transfer files.

get something called zterm.  it is a simple communications program.  and you should be able to use it to send files back & forth.  mac link is typically used to change the FORMAT of the files for different applications, but not the physical transporting it from MAC to PC and back.  you probably can simply save the file as TEXT or Tab-delimited or something to import it for use on the pc.  That's the easy local way.

alternately, you can probably dig up a 2400 baud modem for the SE for $5, and E-mail the file to yourself, using eudora lite or some such program. just dial into the same ISP using the same username and password.  this might be more of a hassle but if you do it regularly (and the files aren't too big) it will keep you from having to jack around with cables all the time.
