MS-DOS Kermit Scripts Library

Most recent update: 25 May 2000.

Scripts for MS-DOS Kermit. See the MS-DOS Kermit distribution diskette or ZIP file for additional scripts.

NOTE: Normally these scripts would have a filetype of ".KSC" (Kermit SCript). However, due to the propensity of Windows-based browsers to "open" links by feeding files to their associated applications, users of Kermit 95 would have no way of viewing these scripts, rather than executing them. Therefore, we have renamed them to ".KDS" so you can see them.

Dialing Scripts:

Dialing script for Aceex DM1414V Faxmodem. MS-DOS Kermit 3.14 or later required.

Dialing script for Compaq Internal Data+Fax modem. MS-DOS Kermit 3.15 or later required.

Dialing script for "generic high-speed" modems, i.e. that use the AT command set and support RTS/CTS hardware flow control and speed buffering. MS-DOS Kermit 3.15 or later required.

Dialing script for the Hayes 1200 and 2400 SmartModem. The venerable HAYES.SCR updated to modern Kermit scripting syntax. MS-DOS Kermit 3.15 or later required.

Dialing script for the Megahertz X-Jack 3144 or CC6144 modem. MS-DOS Kermit 3.15 or later required.

Dialing script for the 3Com/USR Sportster or Courier. MS-DOS Kermit 3.15 or later required.

Most of these scripts are intended to illustrate new features of MS-DOS Kermit 3.15. These features are documented in the msk315.txt file.


KTFC is the acronym for "Kermit To FirstClass" and is the name of a script set which allows Kermit to communicate automatically with the FirstClass Server (trademark SoftArc Inc.), widely used to provide e-mail and BBS services. With KTFC, messages are read and composed off line. Messages in conferences on the FirstClass server can be read automatically. Requires MS-DOS Kermit 3.16. Author: Peter Easthope.

Oldies but Goodies:

Do-It-Yourself Arithmetic (1991).

A very careful script providing automatic login to Columbia's UNIX systems (as they were in 1991), over either of two Rolm data phone models, through a terminal server. MS-DOS Kermit 3.11 required.

A similar script, but for logging into IBM mainframe fullscreen sessions through a 7171 protocol converter. 1991; MS-DOS Kermit 3.11 required.

Similar to rolmunix, but after logging in, this one also puts the user in the desired application, such as e-mail. 1991; MS-DOS Kermit 3.11 required.
