PowerTCP Emulation for .NET 4.0 Released!

PowerTCP Emulation for .NET 4.x fills the VT Emulation, Telnet and remote access communication gaps in the .NET Framework by providing a VT display and stream-based Telnet communication that can be plugged into any Framework 2.0 application. 

Dart Communications is pleased to announce the release of PowerTCP Emulation for .NET 4.0. This latest version of the venerable PowerTCP product line gets a new .NET 2.0 re-design that leverages the power of the latest .NET environments to provide the most advanced Internet Communications controls and components available. Features include:

  • VT52, VT100, VT220, VT320 terminal support
  • Key mapping simplified with a specialized KeyDown event
  • Screen scraping functions for extracting text from the display and scroll buffer
  • Display customization with numerous options
  • International character set support
  • Double-wide Unicode character support
  • Graphic characters fully supported for all fonts
  • TrueType font support
  • Support for ClearType and standard font smoothing
  • Comprehensive style information for every cell in the display
  • Automatic HTML conversion of scraped text
  • Powerful printing capabilities, including auto-print
  • Integrated telnet option sends and receives automatically
  • 64 bit OS support

The Emulation for .NET product also includes Telnet, Rexec, Rsh and Rlogin communication components.  Features include:

  • Auto-option negotiation with easy configuration options
  • Secure SSL Telnet support
  • Blocking reads that wait for defined delimiters, specifically designed for scripting applications
  • Start method for easily implemented mult-threaded applications, including cross-threading marshaling support
  • Logging event for easy debugging and session logging
  • Proxy support Auto-login capabilities

The .NET environment has evolved, and so has its users. Customers are developing more applications for ASP.NET, more console applications, and more service applications. Lacking UIs, pseudo-blocking and asynchronous methods are not relevant for these environments. There are also trends towards greater levels of customer control. For these reasons, PowerTCP for .NET 4.x was designed with the following emphases:

  • Improved Asynchronous Support
    Traditional PowerTCP asynchronous support provided a means for executing methods on worker threads, but this required a signaling mechanism indicating when operations completed. This resulted in difficult-to-maintain, event-driven code. With the new design, code is more self-documenting, uses fewer resources, and is more flexible to use.

  • Improved Re-Use of .NET 2.0 Features
    PowerTCP 4.x has taken advantage of generics, improved support for X509 certificates, and other features introduced in .NET 2.0.  Now that most users have migrated from .NET 1.x, PowerTCP can be upgraded without sacrificing backward compatibility. Of course, the .NET 1.x product line will still be licensed for use in the .NET 1.x environment to support legacy applications.

  • Integrated Security
    Secure Socket Layer (SSL) security is integrated into the core product, so that SSL encryption is included in each new product.

PowerSNMP for .NET 4.0 Released!

PowerSNMP for .NET 4.x fills the SNMP communication gap in the .NET Framework by providing comprehensive Manager and Agent components that can be plugged into any Framework 2.0+ application. 

Dart Communications is pleased to announce the release of PowerSNMP for .NET 4.0. This latest version of the venerable PowerSNMP product line gets a new .NET 2.0 re-design that leverages the power of the latest .NET environments to provide the most advanced Internet Communications components available. Some of the features include:

  • Multi-threaded worker thread operation does not interfere with UI performance
  • MIB files are parsed automatically when loaded
  • SNMP v3 support uses MD5 and SHA authentication and DES, Triple DES and AES (128, 192 and 256 bit strength) encryption.
  • FIPS 140-2 compliant cryptography supports government and military requirements
  • Start methods launch worker threads where synchronous methods do the heavy lifting.
  • Marshal methods marshal data to the UI thread for display purposes

The .NET environment has evolved, and so has its users. Customers are developing more applications for ASP.NET, more console applications, and more service applications. Lacking UIs, pseudo-blocking and asynchronous methods are not relevant for these environments. There are also trends towards greater levels of customer control. For these reasons, PowerSNMP for .NET 4.x was designed with the following in mind:

  • Improved Asynchronous Design
    Traditional PowerSNMP asynchronous design provided a means for executing specific methods on worker threads and marshaled all data back to the UI thread. With the new design user code executes on worker threads and data is marshaled to the UI thread as required, providing code that is easier to understand, uses fewer resources, and is structurally more flexible and powerful.

  • Improved Re-Use of .NET 2.0 Features
    PowerSNMP 4.x takes advantage of generics, Triple DES encryption, and other features introduced in .NET 2.0.  Now that most users have migrated from .NET 1.x, PowerSNMP can be upgraded without sacrificing backward compatibility. Of course, the .NET 1.x product line will still be licensed for use in the .NET 1.x environment to support legacy applications.

  • Future CE Support
    The new code-base is compatible with the Compact Framework.

  • PTY property binds a TextBox to the Telnet component as a ready-made interface for interactive online communications
  • Logging event for easy debugging and session logging
  • Proxy support
  • Includes Rexec, Rsh and Rlogin components in addition to Telnet

The .NET environment has evolved, and so has its users. Customers are developing more applications for ASP.NET, more console applications, and more service applications.

PowerSNMP for .NET Version 1.0.0 Released

Dart Communications, a provider of Internet Application Development Components since 1994, is pleased to announce a new addition to the PowerSNMP product line. This product gives Microsoft .NET developers an unprecedented ability to directly manipulate, send and receive SNMP version 1, 2, 3 packets. Developers can construct custom SNMP Managers, Agents and Trap handlers at a component level without concern for low-level implementation details.

For developers wanting to automate network management functions, PowerSNMP for .NET provides a multi-level object model that substantially reduces the complexity of building enterprise management applications. The Manager and Agent components are easy-to-add networking components for any application that needs to be enterprise-aware. These components use Message classes that aggregate low-level tagged types into strongly typed classes for sending and receiving management information.

“PowerSNMP for .NET builds on lessons learned from our successful ActiveX product,” said Mike Baldwin, Dart’s PowerSNMP product manager. “The new product provides advanced features such as MIB compiling that has never been seen at this price point before.”

Designed for both beginners and expert users, PowerSNMP for .NET provides comprehensive default behavior that can be modified for advanced purposes. Most noteworthy, MIB processing support is extensive. MIB-2 support is provided as intrinsic classes, C# and VB source code can be created from MIB files at design-time for inclusion in your project, and dynamic classes can be compiled from MIB files at run-time.

PowerSNMP for .NET is now available. Additional information can be found here.

Download PowerTCP Secure FTP for .NET

This release of PowerTCP FTP for .NET (regular and secure versions) includes routine maintenance updates as well as the addition of three new properties:

  • UseControlAddressForPassive property. Besides setting a record for our use of Hungarian notation, this property allows you to override the address returned from the server when the PASV command is sent.
  • UseIpSync property. The XP SP2 firewall enhancement does not respond correctly to the IP/SYNC signal used for aborting a file transfer (neither do many servers). Through the use of this property, your users can control the use of this feature when aborting a file transfer.
  • MaxTransferRate property. Since FTP file transfers can be processor intensive, customers have asked us to throttle the transfer speed. If the value of this property is below the actual transfer rate, the worker thread will be put to sleep each second to slow the actual rate to match this value specified by this property.

PowerWEB LiveControls for ASP.NET released!

 PowerWEB LiveControls for ASP.NET is a suite of 20 ASP.NET controls that enable software developers to build web applications that don't require a browser refresh. Just like the Microsoft intrinsic controls, LiveControls trigger events in code-behind, but do not require the client browser to be refreshed when data is sent back to the browser. This technique helps you create richer and cleaner web applications by eliminating the flicker and delays associated with a browser refresh, providing a smoother Windows-like behavior for the application. No need for Flash, Java Applets, or complex JavaScript, and extensive browser compatibility is automatically provided.

Imagine the possibilities if you could easily:

  • Execute server-side code off a timer (just like the Windows Timer control).
  • Perform database queries and update the DataGrid control without causing a full page refresh.
  • Display a progress-bar from progress data generated by the server.
  • Capture mouse movement or key events on the server.

This technology is really easy to use. For example, just draw a LiveButton on your form, double-click on it, and update a property of any other control on your form. See for yourself how smooth the user experience becomes. Now, add an image, and you'll really see a big improvement. No refresh!

We've create a tutorial that describes and demonstrates this feature-rich product. Click here to see a "live" demonstration.

Please download PowerWEB LiveControls for ASP.NET here. Read our White Paper to learn more about callback technology or visit the the PowerWEB LiveControls home page.
