Georgia SoftWorks Announces Telnet Server for Windows Feature Release

Georgia SoftWorks (GSW) releases the latest version of the Telnet Server for Windows. Vrsion 8.09.0001 is now available for shipping and distribution.

Georgia SoftWorks announces the release of their UTS (Telnet Server for Windows and SSH Server for Windows) Version 8.09.0001. The GSW UTS is excellent for use with mobile devices, RFID, RF Terminal, Bar Code scanners and other data collection in wired and wireless environments.

43606-telnetThe latest version of the GSW UTS includes several new features. A new Session Saver method has been added: (AUTO_BY_IP_AND_USER_ALWAYS and AUTO_BY_USER_ALWAYS). This updated method allows devices to more quickly reconnect to their suspended sessions. A new environment variable, gwtn_inactivity_timeout, has been added. If data is not received from a client within a specified time, then the client session is terminated. This timer affects all new connections that do not have a client heartbeat configured. The gwtn_serverside_heartbeat has also been updated. This feature functions on a per user level, identically to Server Side Heartbeat (Global), but supersedes any global setting allowing more granular control. The UTS setup now provides a new folder, Mobile, in the install directory, containing the GSW mobile client setup programs.

The Telnet Server for Windows Release, in conjunction with the GSW SSH Server for Windows Release, provides an easy-to-implement security plan that offers true End-to-End security. The GSW SSH Server for Windows Version 8.09.0001 is also available for shipping and distribution.

Georgia SoftWorks Announces SSH Server for Windows Feature Release

Georgia SoftWorks (GSW) releases the latest version of the SSH Server for Windows. Vrsion 8.09.0001 is now available for shipping and distribution.

2183d-ssh2Georgia SoftWorks announces the release of their Universal Terminal Server for Windows and SSH Version 8.09.0001. The GSW UTS is excellent for use with mobile devices, RFID, RF Terminal, Bar Code scanners and other data collection in wired and wireless environments.

The latest version of the SSH Shield includes several new features. IP Addresses associated with failed logon attempts are now reported in the gsw_sshd.log file. Failed SSH logon data is now logged for the technical support team. New automatic reconnect/session saver method has been added – (AUTO_BY_IP_AND_USER_ALWAYS and AUTO_BY_USER_ALWAYS). This improved Session Saver feature allows devices to more quickly reconnect to their suspended sessions.

The UTS Configuration tool has been updated to support the new session saver methods and to support more than 1000 user profiles. The UTS setup has been modified to provide a new folder Mobile, in the install directory, containing the GSW mobile client setup programs. The gwtn_inactivity_timeout environment variable has been added, so if data is not received from a client within a specified time, then the client is terminated. This timer will take effect for all new connections that do not have a client heartbeat configured. The gwtn_serverside_heartbeat has been updated, as well, and functions identically to Server Side Heartbeat (Global), but supersedes any global setting allowing more granular control. There are also the usual documentation improvements and copyright updates.

“Where security is involved, it is essential to ensure that the products you are using offeralgorithmsafety the most current, peer reviewed, security features available,” said Steve Lindsey of GSW. “GSW is never complacent – we continually update our algorithms and products so that the customer never has to worry about using compromised security components.”

Many SSH products on the market use algorithms that are outdated, deprecated or compromised and therefore unfit for commercial deployment. Advancements in mathematics and computing power continually forces the deprecation of existing security algorithms and ciphers. It is vital to use current, peer reviewed algorithms and ciphers to ensure data security. Both the SSH Server and Client must use approved, safe algorithms, which Georgia SoftWorks provides.

“Nothing can replace due diligence concerning software security updates. This is where Georgia SoftWorks’ products shine. We stay abreast of SSH algorithm and cryptography developments to keep our software secure and ensure that our customers are not using a cryptographic solution that has potential vulnerabilities,” said Lindsey.

The SSH Shield release was launched in conjunction with the GSW Universal Terminal Server Release release. Together, they provide an easy-to-implement security plan that offers true End-to-End security.

GSW Product Showcase: DTIO Engine

dtio.gifIf your application is sluggish due to processing bottlenecks or CPU limitations, you need a larger number of sessions on your server, or you want the bell to work on your RF Device rather than sounding on the server, then the DTIO Engine is for you!

The Georgia SoftWorks Directed Terminal Input/Output (DTIO) Engine takes the fastest and most robust telnet server for windows and makes it even faster! It boosts performance and increases sessions.

The history of the DTIO Engine:

The objective of the GSW DTIO Engine was to provide significant performance improvements and a higher number of sessions on a server than previously possible due to processing bottlenecks and CPU limitations. It would be a specialized software focused on a narrow set of goals.

The outcome:

A new performance standard is realized when using the GSW Directed Terminal I/O Engine with the Georgia SoftWorks UTS for Windows. Large systems experience a dramatic performance improvement as well as a substantial increase in the number of sessions on a server.

How it works:

The GSW TIO Engine is an add-on component that intercepts a specific set of terminal input/output operating system calls initiated by your application and directs terminal I/O through a specialized high performance interface within the GSW Universal Terminal Server (UTS).

The GSW Directed Terminal I/O (DTIO) Engine programmatically hooks the application executable.  This involves the injection of a library into the application address space. This is a well-established technique and an overview is described in the book “Programming Application for Microsoft Windows, Fourth Edition”, published by Microsoft Press. Author: Jeffrey Richter.
