Unix>PC File Transfer w/o a file transfer protocol

How can I transfer a set of files from a unix box to a serially connected PC without the unix having any clearly identifiable file transfer protocol (NCR Tower unix circa. 1986).  I have been trying to use dd to move the files but the system just hangs.

try:

In the PC:
type com1: > myfile
Immediatly in the UNIX machine:
cat myfile > /dev/<serial device>

If you have a cc compiler maybe you should consider compiling Kermit...
