I'm a bit confused though, if you have telnet, and an ethernet conneciton, and you are copying files, why not use scp or ftp to move the files, why use kermit?

Long ago in the early days of the internet telnet was the only internet access that was available to me.  what I ended up doing for other things like moving files and such was running kermit over telnet (I had no means to ftp directly)  This demonstrated that telnet makes a pretty good serial tunnel as we used that to move bits of all kinds to our local machine.  hopefully this is a solution for you though today you have the full tcp/ip protocol suite to pull from so you may be better off just using the right protocol directly.

WHen you use kermit, it connects through the serial port or serial connection and gives you a console.  The console is served by a function called getty.  (Get tty)  Getty is what spawns a shell to the conneciton that is generated when you connect over the serial port. Kermit, itself, only really undestands serial connections.  What goes on on the other end of that serial connection is controlled by the linux kernel running on the other side. 

NOW, your ethernet connection (WIreless or wired) is not spoken to directly by the linux kernel in the sense that it (the linux kernel) does not run a getty on it directly. Instead it runs a tcp/ip stack against teh ethernet and getty runs through teh tcp/ip connection.  This means that you need to run something that uses tcp/ip.. so your friend here is going to be telnet, not kermit, to talk to your target system over the wifi or wired ethernet.

Does someone have experience of using Kermit debugging over netwifiusd board
for Verdex?

I read this post
http://www.nabble.com/USB-connection-for-Connex-using-kermit--td18144163.html#a25096550
But my netwifiusd does not have USB port.
So, how to set up kermit profile for ethernet connection, e.g. Create a file
~/.kermrc.ttyACM0 of USB connection?

I followed this link to build ethernet connection with secondary ethernet
adapter on Ubuntu.

Thanks a lot,
