Sending file from DOS to XP via COM (RS-232)
Posted on 2008-10-07
I am trying to send a single file from a DOS machine, which has no ftp or other software outside of stock DOS to a machine running XP. I have been able to set up a Hyperterminal on XP and by using the command C:\> copy FILENAME COM1, i can see the contents of the file in the hyperterminal window - however because of its file type, it comes out in an unreadable format.
My question is, how do i set up the recieving end to receive the file from the DOS machine, and is there a different command i should be using on DOS to transfer the file?
