Provided you have correctly configured your Using an Atari ST as Unix/Linux Terminal, you can transfer files over the serial port using the zmodem protocol.

Configuration

On the Unix side:

install the lrzsz programm

On the ST side:

Make sure that the TAZ terminal knows about your zmodem programm (xyz.ttp for instance) by editing the appropriate entry in the "Paths" config menu.

Receiving a file on the ST

Once you're logged in your unix system from the ST Terminal emulator, typing

sz /home/manu/myfiles/*

will send all the files of the sz /home/manu/myfiles/ directory.

Type now Alt-R inside TAZ, this will activate the Zmodem program on the ST, and it will start writing the files on your floppy or megadrive.

Sending a file from the ST

Once you're logged in your unix system from the ST Terminal emulator, typing

rz 

will wait for an incoming file from the st, and write it inside the current working directory.

Type now Alt-S inside TAZ, this will activate the Zmodem program on the ST, and after asking which files to send, the transfer will start.

Remember that if you want to use a transfer speed of 19200 bits/s you need to use the HSMODEM utility on the ST, which is is an improved serial port driver. Without it, your files will probably get corrupted during the transfer.
