Ymodem - Definition

Ymodem is a protocol for transferring files during direct dial-up communications. It is so named because it builds on the earlier Xmodem protocol. Ymodem sends data in 1,024-byte blocks and is faster than Xmodem. However, it doesn't work well on noisy phone lines. Ymodem has undergone a few enhancements: Ymodem-Batch can send several files in one session; Ymodem-G drops software error correction, which speeds up the process by leaving hardware based error correction in modems.
