I am having a problem downloading 8 bit binary files (*.bin) using Kermit.  It will only accept text files.  It gives me a "too many NAQs" error message.  Is the problem with my protocol settings?

Wow! It's a while since I used Kermit, but I think that you have to have a

-b

option in the command line (for binary).

Alternatively, can I recommend that you use Fetch 3.0, which does all that stuff automatically and is very easy to use. Through Netscape (and using Stuffit Expander as the extractor,) search for

fetch3.01.cpt.hqx

at the following location:

However, I think that the -b option should solve your problem.

Cheers,
