This is the Info-ZIP file ``Where,'' last updated on 6 February 1994.

Note that some ftp sites may not yet have the latest versions of
Zip and UnZip when you read this. The latest versions, including
the crypt sources, are always in

SITE OWNERS: If you're listed in here but the information is not
correct (or if you're a big or overseas site but aren't listed at
all), please let us know! E-mail to zip-bugs at the address given

ftp sites for the US-exportable sources and executables:

NOTE: Look for the file names given above in the following
directories. Some sites like to use slightly different names,
such as zip-2.0.1.tar-z instead of zip201.tar.Z, or MacUnZip-5.1.hqx
instead of mac-unzip-51.hqx. In the case of some comp.sources.misc
archive sites, directories may be used (zip201/part01.Z ... part11.Z,
zip201/patch01.Z, etc.). [THIS MIRRORS THE INFO-ZIP HOME SITE]{2_x,all}/archiver/...{2_x,all}/archiver/...

ftp sites for the encryption and decryption sources and/or executables:

NOTE 1: Non-US users, please do NOT ftp from the US sites (US
regulations and all that). Likewise, US users, please do not
ftp from the European sites (it's not illegal, but it sure is
a waste of expensive bandwidth).

NOTE 2: Some sites may carry both encryption and non-encryption
executables with slightly different names; for example,
instead of ("c" == crypt version). Other sites may
include *only* the encryption-related executables (zip and zipcloak)
in a second archive (e.g.,

ftp sites for VMS-format Zip/UnZip package (sources and executables, no
encryption/decryption--see also "Mail servers" section below):*

The ZIP-UNZIP package for VMS is available via anonymous ftp from []; the following files are needed:


VMS sources and object files are also available from vmsnet.sources
archives (e.g.,[.mailserv.zip_unzip]*.*).

To find other ftp sites:

The "archie" ftp database utility can be used to find an ftp site
near you. If you don't know how to use it, DON'T ASK US--check the
Usenet groups news.newusers.questions or news.answers or some such,
or ask your system administrator (or just RTFM 🙂 ).

get a copy via e-mail:

/pdget mail /pub/misc/unix/unzip51.tar.Z uuencode

/pdget mail uuencode

[NOTE: As of 28 Jan 94, the NoDak server still had a minor bug in
its code which prevented it from finding files with more than one
dot in their names. The RPI server had just fixed this bug, and in
all likelihood the NoDak server will be fixed before you read this.]

  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:
