ZModem on FreeBSD?

I dont know if this is a SecureCRT problem, or if it can be fixed, but I thought I'd mention it. I have a FreeBSD 4.X server which I connect to via SSH with SecureCRT. XModem transfers seem to start alright, but ZModem transfers do not work. The problem seems to be the wrong filename command; SCRT sends "rz" to the server, but FreeBSD is using lrz/lsz. The apps are installed from the standard lrzsz port on FreeBSD.

To further the problem, after the "rz" command fails on the server end, SCRT still tries to send the contents of the file...this totally trashes the command line. I think if the proper command can't be sent it should at least attempt to not send the file when the command fails.

I'm aware that this can be fixed by linking lrz to rz with a symlink, I don't need troubleshooting support, I just wanted to mention the issue.

Thanks for your post. If you look in the session .ini file, there is a line that looks like:

S:"ZModem Receive Command"=rz\r

You can use this to set the ZModem receive command to whatever the remote system expects and add command-line arguments if you wish.

I checked the on-line help to see if this was documented and I didn't find it, so I will add an issue to our development database to update the help.
