ANN: PockeTTY 2.0 (SSH, SSL, Telnet, Serial) released
We are very happy to announce the loooooong-awaited release of PockeTTY™ 2.0. With faster connections, full VGA and rotation support, SSL connections of several flavors, and much more, we think you'll really like it.
PockeTTY™ turns your Windows CE device into a portable terminal emulator. Use it to remotely administer your home Linux machine, check your e-mail at work, or test hardware through a direct connection. PockeTTY offers four kinds of connections:
* SSH - Log into a remote machine through a secure connection without worrying about someone grabbing your password. Or keep your password really safe by authenticating with a certificate instead. Provides SSH1 and SSH2 support, a variety of encryption methods and MAC's, and the ability to forward ports.
* SSL - Connect directly to an SSL-encrypted service, or proxy it through PockeTTY to an application which is not SSL-aware. Great for checking the status of SSL-based web servers, using SSL-encrypted Telnet services, or continuing to use a legacy application that doesn't understand what SSL is.
* Telnet - Easily connect to most any remote host in a flash! This unencrypted connection method is not recommended for login sessions, but for checking on your webserver it may be just what you need. If you need secure Telnet you can easily tunnel through SSL (we love security!).
* Serial - Connect directly to your IR port, configure your network gear, anything that can be reached through a serial line. A real treat for you hardcore geeky types!
Version 2.0 costs the same as 1.10, $19.95. However, since this is a major product upgrade, registration codes purchased for 1.10 will not work in 2.0. Owners of a 1.10 code can purchase a 2.0 code for an upgrade fee of $5. Anyone who purchased a 1.10 code after October 1, 2005 is entitled to a free upgrade. Contact us if you fall into this category.
