Wow, and here it is 2010 and this program still works, provided one makes a world writeable /var/spool/lock directory. Impressive.

Manual online at http://www.columbia.edu/kermit/ckututor.html#initfile

Works great as a free serial line terminal tool.

How do you open C-Kermit 8.0.211 on a Mac OS 10.3?
I downloaded the file named: cku211.macox103-10.3
It is not a Stuffit file, and it does not open on its own.
Does not open with Terminal
