A protocol that transfers larger data blocks than the XMODEM protocol. A communications protocol very similar to XMODEM designed to perform simple error checking between micro-computers. YMODEM is a half-duplex protocol, used on full-duplex circuits transmitting a 1 kilobyte (1,024) characters per block. After information is sent, the sender waits for a reply before transmitting the next message.
