I downloaded the two files from infozip. (binary and non binary version)

After unzipping I ftp the files to the director /opt/zip on my unix server.  Can someone tell me how to get it to work? It won't work even after I chmod to make it executable.  The readme file is just no help at all.

Help!

Double check that top is showing you correct memory usage of the system- the next time it happens use swap -l  to double check.

While doing an ftp of a binary
ensure that you do an FTP in the "bin" mode
just type "bin" before doing an FTP
of a binary
Now your executable should be fine
