We've got a Cisco 3640 we're using as an async console server. Is there any
way to perform an x-modem or xmodem 1K file transfer over it? I need to
upgrade a device using it as the console connection.

Thanks in advance,

Hmmm... You could try something like Serial/IP from Tactical Software, which
will add "soft" serial ports to a PC, which you can then map to an async port on
your router in "reverse-telnet" fashion.  If you've got an application that
normally supports xmodem to a serial port, you can then use it over the network.
  I've used Serial/IP for a few other applications quite successfully, although
I haven't tried it for xmodem.
