The Kermit Project

ITEC welcomes you to the Kermit Project courtesy of Columbia University, New York City. Kermit is a communications software package for nearly every computer and operating system on the planet.

Kermit software offers interactive and scripted file transfer and management, terminal emulation, character-set conversion, and/or Internet security for Windows, Linux, BSD, Solaris, AIX, HP-UX, SCO, VMS, DOS, IBM mainframes, and dozens of other platforms, new and old, over the Internet as well as serial ports and modems. ** PowerPC and Alpha versions have been discontinued

The nonprofit Kermit Project is entirely self-supporting. If you download Kermit software, please also purchase the corresponding manuals to help fund Columbia University work and to help you get the most out of your software.
