The Ultimate Solution for Automated File Transfers
Featuring Kermit, Xmodem, Ymodem, and Zmodem
FileLink is a powerful unattended, script-driven
file transfer package supporting asynchronous modem communications. FileLink XE is an extended server edition allowing
simultaneous file transfer sessions. Both products are based on Serengetiï¿½s batch-oriented host
connectivity products and provide an extensive
script language for automating recurring file transfer tasks.
References to FileLink on this web site refer to both FileLink and FileLink XE
unless specifically stated otherwise.
The FileLink script language provides all the features you need
to automatically dial your modem, recognize host prompts, send
logon and password strings, send and receive text and binary files
using multiple file transfer
protocols (Kermit, XModem, ZModem, and YModem), detect and handle
error conditions, log results, and wait
for the next session.
Automated FileLink transfers can be launched from a desktop
icon, DOS command line, script file, batch file or run continuously
as a system service on Windows 2000, XP, Server 2003, Vista,
Windows 7 and Server 2008.
FileLink includes support for multiple file transfer protocols,
including Kermit, XModem, ZModem, and YModem. Each protocol's
special features are supported as well, including Configurable Zmodem Sliding Window,
"over-write" file control and crash recovery for Zmodem.
FileLink includes the XModem1K and YModem protocol's Configurable
ACK control and configurable CRC or LRC block check methods.
Carrying on the tradition of its 3770Link and 3780Link siblings,
FileLink's application integration features are extensive. Among
them FileLink supports a COM/OLE interface permitting complete control from
a user-written program. These features permit FileLink to be tightly
integrated with user-written application
FileLink may be installed as a Windows Service.
This enables automatic startup of your FileLink session at system startup
and continuous unattended operation.
Script File Wizard
The FileLink Script File Wizard is a
powerful tool that automatically creates
fully documented, ready-to-run script files.
The wizard is all you need to automate basic
recurring file transfer tasks. Wizard
created script files are also a useful
starting point for automating more complex
Interactive TTY Terminal
Although FileLink's design is centered
around the execution of script files, it
also includes a simple but capable TTY terminal
emulator. This program
may be invoked from FileLink menus
or by way of a script command. It can help
you to observe the behavior of a remote system
in order to build a script file to automate
the typically manual operations.
THE Solution for Automated File Transfer
FileLink has been designed from the
ground up as an unattended file transfer
package. Many other popular asynchronous communications packages designed
for attended operation are excellent if you
are there to "drive", but often come up short
if your needs call for unattended operation.
For those times, there is FileLink -- the Ultimate Solution for Automated File Transfers
