errno=5 is a standard I/O err that most people gets with ifcico. It has
something
to do with the way ifcico resets the modem and is nothing to worry
yourself
over, but there was another error that occurred before that with zmodem.
It
looks as though it returned a -1 which is not good. It looks as though
the other
node may have drop carrier on you.

Putting all that aside, your running an older ver 2.8e. Do yourself a
favor and get the latest release 2.11 and then try it again....
