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.

GSW Power Features – Telnet/SSH Server for Windows

The Georgia SoftWorks Universal Terminal Server is the core server software module that is the foundation for the GSW protocol and application interface such as Telnet and SSH. Products based on the GSW UTS demonstrate the reliability, flexibility, consistency, performance and rich feature set required for demanding commercial environments.

nautizx4Feature packs such as the Power Feature Pack, the Session Administrator, the Emulations/Compatibility Pack, and the Failure Detection/Recovery Pack set the GSW UTS apart from other Telnet Servers on the market.

The GSW UTS Power Features Expand the Telnet/SSH to meet and exceed the most demanding industrial and commercial environments.

Power Features:

Team Services – Breakthrough collaboration technology for SSH/Telnet. Share, Swap, Transfer and Recover sessions. All initiated from the client device. There is no system administrator intervention require, and all can be performed in under 60 seconds.

Automatic Logon – Accelerate User Logon. It’s safe – there are no passwords transferred across networks. This feature allows you to pre-configure a list of IP addresses that will be able to connect and log on without any User ID, Password or Domain prompting when using the Georgia SoftWorks SSH/Telnet Clients or 3rd party clients.

True Client Side Printing – This feature allows documents to be printed at locations that are easily accessible by each user. Traditionally, default printing using Telnet/SSH is always location to the server, which can be inconvenient to the user. GSW overcomes this traditional problem by providing true client side printing – printing the way you want it! This allows you to print to portable Bar Code Printers, Pass through Printing, and much more.

Logon Scripting – Logon Scripting is an advanced feature that allows the system administrator unmatched control over the user sessions. Associated with each User Login is a directory that will execute batch files upon connecting. Logon Scripting provides automatic execution of the batch file upon the login of the user. Logon scripts are often used to map drives, establish network connections, change directories, set environment variables, run TSR’s and launch applications. When an application is launched via a logon script the User is automatically deposited into the application upon successful logon.

Programmatic Interface – This feature allows you to programmatically take control of the Input/Output to/from the client. Developers may take advantage of the programmatic interface to the Georgia SoftWorks SSH/Telnet Server for Windows. Programmatic, language independent access to the SSH/Telnet Server allows developers to write an application that (when run under the SSH/Telnet Server environment) takes control of its input and/or output from/to the client. This can be utilized to create a custom or highly specialized communications application. The SSH/Telnet Server still maintains critical functionality such as logon, security, application launch and termination. Normally the application before it terminates will release control to the SSH/Telnet server.

Client Identity and Uniqueness – This feature allows you to know the exact identity of the client device connected. This is useful is many environments, and required in others.

GSW Event Logging The Event Logging Feature maintains useful Telnet/SSH Server activity information in the Event Log. The System Administrator can use information in the Event log for generating reports. The logging of various events can be optionally enabled or disabled.

Special Refresh Character – The User Definable Refresh Character will cause SSH/Telnet to repaint the screen data. This is useful in environments that may occasionally drop characters such as RF Terminals.

UTS GUI Configuration Tool – The GSW Configuration Tool allows the use of an intuitive Windows Explorer style graphical user interface to set configuration parameters that reside in the registry in addition to creation of folders, scripts and the creation/modification of UTS environment variables.

The Georgia SoftWorks Telnet Server for Windows and SSH Server for Windows offers a robust amount of features available, including Power Features, Session Administrator Features, the Security Pack, Emulations, Legacy Pack, Utility Pack, Failure/Recovery Pack, Super Clients Pack and Performance Pack.

Two of the Session Administrator Features are the Session Monitoring Feature and the Session Shadowing Feature. What’s the difference between the two?sa_select_shadowing

Session Monitoring: Allows the administrator to identify an active user session to monitor and observe dynamic screen activity EXACTLY as it appears to the user.

Session monitoring is the method used to locally observe the display on a remote SSH/Telnet session. As the data is displayed on the remote SSH/Telnet client, an exact copy is sent to the Session Monitor too. The display is exactly the same as the display being presented to the remote session. Session Monitoring is transparent to the client being monitored and does not impact their performance.

Session Shadowing: Monitoring with the added capability of interactive output. Take control of a session from the convenience of your workspace.

Shadowing is similar to Monitoring except interactive input is allowed. This means that you can provide input to another SSH or Telnet session. This is a powerful training and quality assurance tool. A user may need assistance in using their application and you can shadow their SSH or Telnet session providing input where they have difficulty.

Configure the GSW Telnet Server and SSH Server Accessiblity Filters

The GSW Universal Terminal Server (Telnet Server and SSH Server for Windows) provides the flexibility to control who is allowed access to your server.

Only if a connection attempt meets your configured access criteria is it allowed. Georgia SoftWorks connection restriction configuration has thorough filtering capabilities straining out connection attempts that do not meet your specifications.

Configurable Filters and Restriction Options:

SSH2 Administrators can restrict users to SSH Clients (both 3rd party clients and GSW clients), or only allow connections from GSW SSH clients (both FIPS 140-2 compliant and non-FIPS 140-2 compliant).

FIPS 140-2 – This feature allows connections only from the Georgia SoftWorks FIPS 140-2 SSH Clients. This is a high level of security that the system administrator can configure. Many times the system administrator will insist that End-to-End FIPS 140-2 compliance is the only allowable option.

IP Address – Remote access may be limited only to specific IP addresses. The system administrator may optionally restrict connections via telnet based on the Host IP address.

User Name – Restriction based on the user ID is useful when there are a defined set of users that are allowed access to the Windows Server via SSH/Telnet.

3rd Party Client – This feature allows connections only from the Georgia SoftWorks SSH/Telnet Client. This is another level of security that the system administrator can configure. Many times the system administrator will not want users using any generic client to connect to his or her system.

Encryption – This feature allows connections only from the encrypted Georgia SoftWorks Telnet Client. This is another level of security that the the system administrator can configure. Many times the system administrator wants to ensure that ALL connections to the Georgia SoftWorks UTS are encrypted.

Time of the Day – This option can restrict access based on the time of the day.

Connection count – This feature specifies the number of connections allowed. Many times administrators want to limit the total number of connections to be a smaller value than thenumber of connections purchased.

Connection Count by : USERNAME – System administrators may want to limit the number of simultaneous logons for specific User Ids. This is especially useful for ASP environments where an entire company, department or group is assigned a single User Id that everyone shares. Reasons for limiting the number range from server resource allocation to purchased access.

Connection Count by : IP ADDRESS – The system administrator may want to limit the number of simultaneous logons from specific IP Addresses. This is especially useful for ASP environments where many users access the GSW UTS from locations that can be identified by a specific IP Address. The system administrator may want to limit the number of simultaneous connections for a variety of reasons that range from server resource allocation to purchased access.
