Kermit 95 for OS/2

  Affordable Communications Software for OS/2

. . . Certified by IBM

Kermit 95 for OS/2, or "Kermit/2" for short, is the new, low-cost, high-power, full-function, 32-bit native-mode 32-bit communications software for OS/2 from Columbia University, home of the Kermit file transfer protocol and software. OS/2 3.0 or later is required (Kermit 95 itself works in OS/2 2.x, but the Dialer requires the Work Place Shell and therefore OS/2 3.0 or later). Take a look:

Kermit/2 was first released 8 February 1997, replacing OS/2 C-Kermit 5A(191) of April 1995. Version 2.1 was released in late 2002. For detailed specifications, licensing and ordering information, see:

Kermit/2 comes with a full-GUI Presentation Manager Dialer to set up your connections. Kermit/2 includes: All in a consistent package that operates uniformly over direct or dialed serial connections, TCP/IP Telnet or Rlogin connections, PATHWORKS, Named Pipes, or NETBIOS connections, and compatibly with Kermit software for DOS, Windows, UNIX, VMS, IBM Mainframes, and many other platforms.

Kermit 95 for OS/2 2.1 is miles ahead of the old OS/2 C-Kermit:
