GSW Recaps Telnet Server for Windows 2017 Year and Looks to 2018

Georgia SoftWorks (GSW), developer of the GSW Telnet Server for Windows and SSH Server for Windows, recaps their 2017 year and projects their development for 2018.

Georgia SoftWorks reviews the past year developing the GSW Telnet Server for Windows, SSH Server for Windows and other products. They also discuss plans for the 2018 year.

“2017 has been an exciting year at Georgia SoftWorks,” said Steve Lindsey of Georgia SoftWorks. “We started the year celebrating GSW’s 25th Year Anniversary, made updates to our GSW Telnet Server and SSH Server for Windows, and had several reseller and product milestones.”

Georgia SoftWorks launched their GSW UTS (Universal Terminal Server, the GSW Telnet Server and SSH Server for Windows) Version 8.08.0002 in February of 2017, which added Windows Server 2016 support and an SSH Shield feature for logging support. The GS_GET and GS_PUT are now supported in the Windows “Long Name Files” documentation in Version 8.08.0003, released in May 2017.

“This past year marked 10 Years since launching the DTIO Engine, a product that boosts the performance and increases the session count of the Telnet and SSH Server, and 10 Years since launching Team Services, a breakthrough collaboration feature for the GSW UTS,” said Lindsey.

Georgia SoftWorks noted significant reseller milestones in 2017. BSD Solutions, IMEC Technologies and SYSSOFT LLC celebrated 5 Year Anniversaries. Mega Sonic Co and SoftLine Company celebrated 10 Year Anniversaries, and Hiresoft Solutions (formerly Aspxx Ltd), LE Consult, MI9 Software Development, Lake Country Systems, and HighJump Software all reached their 15 Year Reseller Milestone selling the GSW Telnet Sever and SSH Server.

“In 2018, GSW plans to continue to grow our reseller network and continue to strengthen our current products as new technologies develop. In the 1st Quarter of 2018 there will be a major announcement with respect to the strengthened security with the GSW SSH products. We’ve also been working on a new product launch for Andriod devices that everyone will see shortly,” said Lindsey. “Georgia SoftWorks will be at Modex in April 2018, which is the leading trade show for supply chain, manufacturing and distribution industries.”

GSW Telnet Server for Windows Validated on Handheld’s Nautiz X2

nautiz-x2-handheld-rugged-facing-rightGeorgia SoftWorks tested and certified their Telnet Server for Windows and Mobile Clients on Handheld Group’s Nautiz X2.

Georgia SoftWorks (GSW) successfully tested their Telnet Server for Windows and SSH Server for Windows on Handheld’s Nautiz X2; the most compact and comfortable rugged handheld available.

“Our certification testing consisted of setting up a telnet connection to the GSW UTS Server and running a test application over a period of time to establish confidence that the connections remained stable. We then set up an SSH connection to the UTS Server, stress testing that as well. We disconnected and reconnected multiple times to ensure consistency,” explained Steve Lindsey of Georgia SoftWorks.

“We also tested the GSW Client features. We established automatic logon, tested Public/Private Key setup and connection, saving profiles, screen lockdowns/auto launch, Team Services, and verified cold boot application persistence,” said Lindsey. “The Nautiz X2 performed reliably and smoothly throughout all of our testing. It is a fully capable device that runs well in a Georgia SoftWorks environment.”

Handheld’s Nautiz X2 is an all-in-one: a computer, a scanner, a camera and a 4G/LTE phone. It comes with an easy-to-use Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) OS. The device has a 1.3 GHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 MPCore processor, 2GB of RAM and 16 GB of Flash memory. With enterprise-level capabilities, the Nautiz X2 combines full functionality with superior economics. Its sleek design is small and lightweight, with rugged durability and can withstand even the roughest environments. The Nautiz X2 is IP65-rated and meets stringent MIL-STD-810G test standards.

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.

Georgia SoftWorks Celebrates 10 Years since Team Service Launch

In 2007, Georgia SoftWorks launched Team Services, a ground breaking feature for their Telnet Server and SSH Server for Windows.

Georgia SoftWorks celebrates 10 years since the launch of their feature release, Team Services. Team Services is a breakthrough collaboration feature for the GSW Telnet Server for Windows and SSH Server for Windows. The release has transformed user’s abilities in the data collection world, allowing team members to help each other. Team Services are performed fast, in under 60 seconds, without System Administrator intervention.

The feature launched in 2007 with Feature Release 7.01.0003. Team Services empowers the mobile device user to share resources, transfer, swap share and recover mobile device sessions from the mobile device. This provides the device users the capability to quickly solve common mobile device session and device problems without having to perform administrative operations on the server and without the need to involve IT personnel.

There are four primary components to the Team Services Feature. Transfer allows users to transfer/move a session to another team member’s device. Swap is used to transfer a session to another team member’s device and at the same time Transfer their session to your device. Share allows two devices to share the same session. Recover allows a dropped session to be recovered on the same device or another team member’s device.

“During the past 10 years, Georgia SoftWorks Team Services has shattered all prior usability and efficiency standards by allowing for unprecedented user collaboration and cutting the costs of hardware,” said Johnny Douglas of GSW. “With enormous implications, the GSW Team Services has radically transformed the client/server applications universe from isolated and fragile sessions to a world of persistence and creative collaboration of empowered users.”
