When I was used secureCRT in Windows, I often used sz and rz to transfer files between my linux server and client machine. But I can't use that way in iterm2 in MacOS X. lrzsz package has installed in my linux server(ubuntu 13.04)

benjamin@my-ubuntu-13-04:~$ rz
�z waiting to receive.**B0100000023be50

The terminal client got a hang. What's the problem?

  • You're using a serial connection? Can you give a bit more information about it — is it an old-fashioned serial cable? Over USB? Over something else? – Gilles 'SO- stop being evil' Jul 3 '13 at 20:56
  • @Gilles Sorry for my late response. I just connect the server using ssh2 protocol via tcp, like most people do. I don't connect with serial or USB. – Benjamin Jul 8 '13 at 1:32
  • sz or rz works only with serial port or usb? But when I was using secureCRT(with ssh), it works very well. Is it depends on terminal client implementaion? – Benjamin Jul 8 '13 at 1:33
