Tera term and xyzmodem
Posted on 2002-05-14
I ran into a site which gives me some space but requires that I upload/download files using tools such as "tera term" and use xyzmodem protocols.
My questions are:
1) Why does that site do this? Is it for security purposes? Why using xyz protocols will be more secure than using ftp to upload/download?
2) "tera term" only works on Windows platforms. Any similar tools available under Linux?
Your help will be very much appreciated.
