BLAST stands for Blocked Asynch protocol (I think) it is
usually done over serial lines. It is proprietary, but
the company does have implementations for a bunch of HW.

BLAST gives something on the order of ZMODEM file xfer rates,
2 - 3 times Kermits.

The only way I can see to run BLAST over TCP/IP would be to establish
Da Telnet session and run it over that session. No matter what the
problem, it wuld seem there is a better solution.

Hope this helps
