Dear Netters,

I tried to download GIF and JPEG files from Gopher.  I have a Mac
Quadra 800 and use the recent Kermit 0.99(190) to communicate
with our Computer Center.  All what I could get were invalid files
or files with corrupted data, when I tried to view them with
GIF-converter or JPEG view.  Also Adobe Photoshop did not
work.  I have also experimented with a number of different
file settings such as Binary, MacBinary and Data Fork or
Resource Fork  -  without any success.  I specified KERMIT as
mode of transfer.

What is the correct procedure?

Many thanks in advance,

Dietmar Tietz

PS: There were no problems with HQX files encoded with BinHex4,
    since these can be treated as TEXT files.
