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.”

How Fast is the GSW Telnet/SSH? Rocket Fast.


How Fast is the GSW Telnet and SSH Server? Rocket Fast.

barcode-reduce-errorsGeorgia SoftWorks understands that speed in telecommunication and data communication is vital. Speed is time. Time is money. The GSW Universal Terminal Server (UTS – Telnet Server and SSH Server) is FAST FAST FAST.

How so?

The GSW UTS provides incredibly fast screen updates. In fact, the FASTEST on the market. Several optimizations have been implemented with respect to screen updates. For example, when data is sent from the server to the client, only the screen data that has changed is sent.

The keyboard response is also incredibly fast. When you type a character, it is displayed immediately. A fast typist will have to work to outrun the keyboard response of the Georgia SoftWorks Universal Terminal Server.


Compression for Slow Link Speeds

The Georgia SoftWorks UTS for Windows compresses data to increase the overall throughput of data. Incredible performance optimizations are utilized when using the Georgia SoftWorks SSH/Telnet Clients.

Proprietary Performance Algorithms and Code Optimizations

To accomplish the desired performance, the GSW SSH/Telnet Server designers used object oriented C++ for the foundation of the software, providing a modular, easily extendable and maintainable design. In addition to sophisticated performance algorithms, all time-critical sections of the software are written in highly optimized C code.

DOSBoss MSDOS Application Performance Booster

The Georgia SoftWorks DOSBoss dramatically improves system performance in situations when MSDOS applications are running under Microsoft Windows NT. In fact, some say its incredible!

Many MSDOS applications run under Windows but do not perform well, especially when multiple instances of them are being used at the same time (without Telnet/SSH). This is because MSDOS applications do not know about Windows and assume they are the only application(s) running on the computer. As a result, MSDOS applications are not always Windows friendly. With the GSW DOSBoss, performance is drastically improved.


Georgia SoftWorks has gained worldwide recognition for their development of the GSW Telnet Server for Windows and SSH Server for Windows over the past 25 years. They have end users and resellers on every continent, except Antarctica. As more resellers join the ever-growing global network of Authorized Resellers, more industries are using the GSW Telnet and SSH, proving its robustness and superior operation in the most demanding commercial and industrial environments.

SAP users enjoy the GSW Universal Terminal Server (UTS) ease of operation as well as specialized features that include mobile printing and Session Monitoring to maximize the return on investment. The Georgia SoftWorks UTS is the industrial quality software foundation supporting the suite of GSW server products including the GSW Telnet Server, the GSW SSH Server for Windows, the Session Administrator and numerous remote access utilities. The UTS offers many features that will benefit SAP users. For example, in most instances the user will want SAPConsole to automatically launch when the SSH/Telnet session is connected. This is easily done via the GSW Logon Scripts.
