WXTERM supports Windowed Xmodem, now available on People/Link through
the DOS gateway available in many communications programs such as Qmodem,
Procomm, Pibterm, Crosstalk and others.

To use WXTERM:

1. After going online with the bbs or service that you wish, but
before entering into Xmodem file transfer, run the WXTERM program

Crosstalk: RUN WXTERM (or just RU and then WXTERM)
at the DOS > prompt)

GT PowerComm: Alt-1 (WXTERM at the DOS prompt).

Procomm: Alt-F4 (WXTERM at the DOS prompt).

Qmodem: Alt-R (WXTERM at the DOS prompt).

2. The first time that you run WXTERM you will need to set
parity, baud rate, com port (COM1 or COM2), stop bits
and PC Jr mode. Use Alt-P to accomplish this.

3. Alt-R is Windowed Xmodem receive (with auto fall back to
CRC Xmodem and then Checksum Xmodem).

4. Alt-S is Windowed Xmodem transmit (however the receiving
computer actually decides which protocol to use).

5. Alt-X will let you exit WXTERM. If you get a DOS prompt
at this point, enter EXIT to exit DOS and return
to your primary communications program.

Soon many of the primary communications programs will have their
own WXmodem support.

In the meantime, please feel free to use and distribute this program.

Windowed Xmodem will improve your download and upload times by 30% to
70%! At 1200 baud, you will see improvements of 45 to 60% in file
transfer times.

Windowed Xmodem is a public domain protocol. You will find ARC files
describing the protocol and with source for this program in Turbo
Pascal on many IBM PC bulletin boards.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read:
