    You mean like say running a terminal program with file transfer capabilities on each machine?
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Wouldn't this really belong in the Tech board OR a Linux specific forum?

    Since this is a "Linux Programming" board.

    Well it really depends on whether the OP is just after a solution to a problem (tech) or is interesting in researching various serial line protocols (X-Modem, Y-Modem etc) in order to write their own program.
