How do i Send a file with Zmodem to a PC-Server from Unix when i´m the one whos dialing? I´ve read that you can´t use CU to dial when using sz, but i would like to have some program like cu to dial the Server and send the file with a script.
This is how i would like it to work:
1. I call the server with CU or another dialer
2. I start the Sending of the file from me to the Server
3. I hang up

Why are you using cu to try and connect with the remote computer.  cu is literally from the "stone-age" of intercomputer communications.  There are any number of ways to get a good terminal emulator dialing capabilities for unix.  I like minicom and if you're using linux you probably already have it.  It's also useful on other flavors of unix and you can compile it yourself from the source code if you have to.  Using zmodem, of course, assumes that the other end, in this case the PC you are calling is running some kind of program that will answer the modem and let you start a zmodem upload.
