There were many responses to my question. Here is something of a summary:

-- Procomm on a PC can call the Sun and retrieve files without any communication
        on the Sun.

-- UUPC for the PC. Standard type UNIX UUCP which will spool file transfers and
        then call the Sun and upload. Probably the way to go.

-- Kermit protocol for the Sun available from ftp. Or use sz,rz for send and
        receive files, also available on net ( ftp).

Here are some of the people I want to thank:
