Should be about 458k ?  Did you set the binary mode for the ftp transfer ?

Move it into /usr/local/bin. Maybe you need to first create that directory
with a "mkdir -p /usr/local/bin". Look at the permission of kermit, i have
found that just as "-r--r--r--" on my server, so you need to do a 
"chmod +x kermit" so that you can call it and then simply use it.
Something like "/usr/local/bin/kermit" should give you the running kermit.
Read the shell man page with a "man csh" how to set your "path" so that
you can also call it later with a simple "kermit".
