This program is what is known as a terminal emulator. In other words, it allows a computer to appear similar to a terminal interface found within a network. This can often be helpful when designing software or when diagnosing problems.
This program has been tested in order to ensure that no viruses or other malicious elements are present within its architecture. Still, it is wise to only connect with other networks when it is known that they are safe.
While some websites claim that this software is completely free, it is nonetheless a fact that a 30-day trial is included before the user will need to purchase the product as a whole.
While this is indeed a powerful network terminal emulator, it will not need much hard drive space in order to properly function. According to Hilgraeve (the producer of the hardware), it will require 8.5 megabytes of free memory to use.
Users will need to be operating one of a handful of versions of Windows. These include Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10. Please note that this terminal emulator does not currently work with Mac operating systems.
A handful of improvements associated with this version (7.0) include a faster modem connection for dial-up users, quicker methods to check for any updates and the addition of Secure Shell Protocol in conjunction with TCP/IP network connections.
This program is provided directly by the developer and there are no legal issues that should be present. Like many other network emulators, it is the responsibility of the user to make certain that no security protocols are breached when accessing a specific virtual architecture.
Users will be happy to know that ongoing customer service and support are available to those who have paid for the full download. This can be reached by visiting the official website of the developer.
Although this software has been around for a number of years, upgrades have been known to take place on a rather frequent basis (such as the ability to work with Windows 10). So, it is perfectly reasonable to assume that additional improvements will be made.
Some users feel that the rather outdated UI is the only potential drawback. It closely mirrors interfaces associated with the Windows 95 platform and there are few choices in terms of changing skins or its overall layout.
