Well I am using the real thing, MS-Kermit 3.12. I've posted this 
before but I guess it is time to do so again.

To begin--I am using MS-DOS 5.0 on an 80386, Waffle 1.65 and
MS-Kermit 3.12 at patch level 12.

The ~\WAFFLE\BIN\RUN.BAT file begins with this line:

SET KERMIT=ROLLBACK 0

This minimizes the amount of memory that MS-Kermit will use (by 
setting the amount of memory used for the display rollback buffer 
to zero).

The static file has the following: 

     device: 2
     speed:  38400
     driver: native

The /waffle/extern/_receive file has the following one-line entry
in it for Kermit (it is presented here in two lines)

K  /command="C:\KERMIT\K312\KERMIT def waf take C:\KERMIT\_WAFFLE.TAK,
DO WAF R %d %b %i"

The /waffle/extern/_send file has an almost identical line:

K  /command="C:\KERMIT\K312\KERMIT def waf take C:\KERMIT\_WAFFLE.TAK,
DO WAF S %d %b %i"

The Kermit script file, _WAFFLE.TAK, looks like this:

=====================================================================
; This is a Kermit script which will be used when the user wants
; Waffle to send or receive files and has selected the Kermit protocol.

; The first argument should be either the letter R or S.
;
;       R - Receive a file
;       S - Send a file

TAKE C:\KERMIT\K312\MSKERMIT.INI
SET PORT \%2
SET SPEED \%3
OUTPUT {MS-DOS Kermit: 3.12  25 Sept 1992 patch level 12\13\10}
SET ERRORLEVEL 1                  ; Indicate failure (in case we don't succeed)
IF EQUAL \%1 S GOTO SND
IF EQUAL \%1 R GOTO RCV
SET ERRORLEVEL 4                  ; Indicate failure
EXIT

:SND
SEND \%4
IF SUCCESS SET ERRORLEVEL 0       ; Indicate successful
EXIT                              ; and return to DOS

:RCV
RECEIVE
IF SUCCESS SET ERRORLEVEL 0       ; Indicate successful
EXIT                              ; and return to DOS
=====================================================================

With this I could send and receive files using Kermit or Zmodem
and found, as has already been pointed out, that one must tell
Waffle the exact name of the file to be sent or received if
Waffle is to report the file transfer as successful.
