We are doing this with "CAP" which is a shareware from Columbia Univ. It
works very well. You just mount the unix directory that you want to
store your DNA trace file and sequence file as your mac folder, then you
just drag and drop the ABI 377 files from your mac.

A related question: We also have several ABI 3700s and they are on NT
platform. We are using "SAMBA" to do the file transfer and we have found
that we frequently get "network" errors and the transfer would stop in
the middle of the process. We have tried SAMBA client and SAMBA daemon,
we also tried different SAMBA configuration settings. But the problem
still exists. Does anyone have any suggestion?
