• SyncTerm for Linux and Upload Issues

    From Elf@VERT/REALITY to All on Mon Apr 19 09:05:00 2021
    Is anyone out there using SyncTerm for Linux? I'm using version 1.2a „and seem to have nothing but troubles uploading files to ANY BBS I try. „I am getting seemingly random successes with 99% failures.„„If I use my DOS Virtual Machine with Windows 3.1 and Procomm Plus I can „upload REP packets without issue to any BBS all day long and fast, 100% „of the time.„„With SyncTerm uploading of REP packets fails 99% of the time. I have „tried using Zmodem, YModem, Xmodem, all to no avail. :-( Downloading „with SyncTerm for Linux works all the time. It's just the uploading „that fails nearly all the time.„„Running SyncTerm 1.2a„Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS„„Thanks!„...
