Zssh Anyone?

Sounds as if the wrapper has not been updated to take advantage of devfs and 
how devfs names pseudo terminals.
Your ssh is probably using the right naming but zssh is not.
Why would you want to do zmodem transfers over an ssh connection? Wouldn't 
scp/sftp be more efficient?
TCP is allready end-to-end reliable; you shouldn't need to encapsulate data 
in zmodem packets unnecessarily?

you can turn off the escape character for ssh with -e none (check the 
manpage) then ssh becomes 8-bit-clean and should work with 

Regards, Kerry.
