What is a Ymodem? 

A Ymodem is a file-transfer protocol developed by Chuck Forsburg, that is similar to the enhanced 1K version of Xmodem. Ymodem sends data in 1024-byte blocks, allows for multiple file transmissions at once, performs cyclical redundancy checks (CRC), and can reduce the transfer size to compensate for poor connections.
