4. Undocumented features
5. Known problems
1. Notes - Use the "setup -wauto -s" command line (instead of "setup -auto") to start the "Silent Installation"! 2. Major differences datAxe 2.2 2.1. The following enhancements have been made : 1. Comport and Comserv : - KeepAliveTime setting was added 3. Major differences datAxe 2.2 from datAxe 2.1 3.1. The following enhancements have been made: 1. Control API for Serial-Line Redirector Service: - Implemented the Control API for Serial-Line Redirector (demo). Implementation examples both of usual API (to be used from user's C/C++ programs) and COM (OLE) interface (to be used from different procedures like Web, VBS, HTML, ...) are given. You can do without the normal GUI interface of the packages when including them into your own software; - The access via DCOM is also available now. 3.2. The following bugs have been fixed : 1. COM Port Redirector: - the crash after 60-min completing may take place; 2. ComServ: - some minor bugs were fixed; 3. COM Port Redirector and COM Port Redirector Service: - the "IPv6 before IPv4" problem is fixed. (the Windows may translate the "localhost" as "::1","127.0.0.1"). 4. Undocumented Features 1. COM Port Redirector and COM Port Redirector Service: - Add manually the "DCD=..." line into the "[VPORTPRO]" section of the "XWP.INI" file to set up the DCD Virtual serial port "state" : a) "DCD=0" - DCD is Off (as was before this version); b) "DCD=1" - DCD is On (Default); c) "DCD=2" - DCD is controlled by DTR (as in NULL Modem Cable). Available only in the RFC2217 mode; d) "DCD=4" - DCD is turned On when client connects to server and DCD is turned Off after client disconnects from server. 2. Uninhalf.exe utility: - The "uninhalf.exe -s" command line uninstalls the NT service only. 3. Control API for Serial-Line Redirector Service: - This is a set of demo-files in the "tst_API" subdirectory. More information is in the "tst_API\readme.txt" file; - the DCOM usage details are in the "tst_API\use_DCOM.txt" file; - the "Demo Control Interface tst_API" package's submenu provides a set of sample action to Control API. 5. Known problems 1. The package cannot be used under MS Windows Vista 2. 32-bit software programs (developed for the Win32 platform) have only been tested. 16-bit software programs for MS-DOS have not been tested. 3. In the Telnet RFC2217 mode, the Client mode supports the following "usual" Telnet-protocol commands: - TN_TRANSMIT_BINARY; - TN_ECHO; - TN_SUPPRESS_GO_AHEAD. 4. To test the COM Port Control protocol (RFC 2217) commands, the ACORP 56000 Data/Fax/Voice modem and the DIGI One IA server have been used. 5. VCOM-TCP Primary Client: - Allows creating up to 10 Virtual COM Ports. - Additional Virtual Com Ports can be adding by purchasing drivers from our sales team. 6. COM Port Redirector and COM Port Redirector Service: - Allows (together) creating up to 10 Virtual COM Ports. - Provide the TCP-Client and RFC2217-Client mode only in pairs so far (as well as the TCP-Server and the RFC2217-Server). 7. Control API for Serial-Line Redirector Service: - non-Demo version can be adding by ordering it from our sales team. ------------ PLEASE NOTE: ------------ The programs associated in this package may send and/or receive broadcast IP requests. Since such packets cannot cross the nearest firewall/gateway/router, please be sure that these IP requests are invisible from outside your network. We assume that such behavior cannot be considered as "Hacking" or "Trojan horse's action".
