Legacy Pack Utility Pack

The Georgia SoftWorks UTS provides full support for DOS Legacy applications. When you run DOS legacy applications using the GSW UTS it is as if you are running them locally.

When using the GSW SSH2/Telnet clients the Mouse works as expected. This is true for the stylus on mobile devices too. WOW

Full range of DOS character mode colors are fully supported. This includes all 256 possible background/foreground color combinations as well as all characters in the original IBM PC character set..

When using GSW clients, the function keys work as expected. When using 3rd party clients the function keys are supported as per the emulation specified.  All character codes between 0x00 and 0xFF are supported and displayed properly when using the GSW SSH2/Telnet clients and conforming third party emulations.

Even thought applications take advantage of the "Alt" key, many keyboards and terminal emulations do not support the "Alt" key.  GSW UTS allows the "Alt" key sequence to be transmitted to an application by providing a substitute key sequence.

GSW UTS allows configuration of the behavior for <control-c> There are different expectations for the behavior when control-c is depressed. The GSW UTS allows configuration of the behavior by setting an environment variable in a logon script. This can be defined on a global, per user or per IP Address basis

Screen sizes other than 25x80 are supported. This is and important feature for mobile devices which have a wide range of sizes. By placing the "mode con" command in a GSW logon script, the screen size will adjust automatically when the user logs in". This can be defined on a global, per user or per IP Address basis.

Vangard Voice

No need for an FTP server to be installed and you are not limited by file sizes as with many email attachments. If using a secure connection (SSH2) then the file transfer is secure.

A customer banner can be displayed to the client upon connection to the host.

When upgrading to a new version or permanently activating a trial version.

GSW SSH2/Telnet server can intercept a special character written to the application's screen and send a bell character to the terminal. The number of times that the bell will sound is configurable.

Gswbell supports correct bell operation even after a Session Saver reconnect

Use an different port (other than port 23) for telnet

Up to 100 Telnet Ports. Access port number associated with your session

  • TTY Name - Create a tty name on a per session basis

Powerful utility that facilitates client side processing of server side files. Provides the capability to execute commands on the client complete white in the SSH2/Telnet session.

Launch GUI application on the server's desktop from a SSH2/Telnet session using the gs_gui.exe and gs_engui.exe utilities.

In some instances the system administrator may want to eliminate prompting for a domain when the user is connecting to the SSH2/Telnet server.

Enable scroll bars on the Windows client. No scroll bars option for Windows CE .NET 4.2/5.0+ clients

Failure/Recover Pack GSW Super Clients Pack - No Extra Cost  - BIG SAVINGS!

This is one area that separates the tools from the toys. Commercial environments require that remote link, PC and client failures be detected and handled as to not impact other users.  Due to the many ways failures can manifest, multiple failure detection and recovery technologies are required. Once a failure is detected then the objective is the fastest possible recovery so work can be continued exactly at the same point where the failure occurred. If recovery is not possible then the session should be gracefully shutdown as do there is not data lose and resources can be retuned for others to users

This feature Saves the SSH2/Telnet Session in the event of a link or client failure and allows users to reconnect to the same session the next time they log in and resume the work in progress, exactly where they left off. Extremely useful when connectivity is across the Internet or with Radio Frequency Barcode / Scanner applications where it is important to continue work in progress even after a connectivity failure. Quickly re-establish the session and resume work in progress after link or client failure.
