Copy file through serial-terminal?

Wed Nov 28, 2012 11:28 am

Hi, I need to connect (through serial port) an old device provided of DOS operating system.
I usually connect thruogh HyperTerminal, then I copy files from device to my laptop.
Is there a way (maybe using fetch in a script) to collect files from serial port and seve them to usb pendrive?

/tool fetch is not usable with serial-terminal. If that is only possibility how to retrieve data from device you will have to use your old method to get them. However if there is ftp/http access possible you can automate data extraction from device using /tool fetch.
