The Internet Kermit Service daemon (IKSD) is a Kermit program such as C-Kermit or Kermit 95 running as an Internet service, similar to an FTP or Telnet server. It executes Telnet protocol just like a Telnet server and it transfers files like an FTP server. But unlike an FTP server, IKSD uses the Kermit file transfer protocol (which is more powerful and flexible) and allows both FTP-like client/server connections as well as direct keyboard interaction. Secure authentication methods and encrypted sessions are available, as well as a wide range of file transfer and management functions, which can be scripted to automate arbitrarily complex tasks.
IKSD can be accessed by any Telnet client. If file transfer is required, the Telnet client must include Kermit file transfer protocol. Best results are obtained when the client implements the Telnet Kermit Option (as do Kermit 95 for Windows and C-Kermit for Unix) for "tight coupling" of client and server.
