Major differences 2.6/Release:20051120 from the 2.5/Release:20050429 version

New Features on this release include

1. Comport and Comserv :
- are operational under MS Windows 2003
- the log-file size is limited by the 2Mb
- the "0" value of the "Number of retries" has obtained a new sense

2. Virtual COM port Driver :
- is operational under MS Windows 2003
- significantly renovated and tested under MS Windows 2K/2K3/XP

The following bugs have been fixed:

1. Virtual COM port Driver :
- some bugs took place under Windows/TSE systems

2. Comport and Comserv :
- a problem found is that the Server will stop outputting data if any one of the connected Clients stops/disconnects during a period of receiving data. This required the Server to be reset by 'Stopping/Starting' the Server process
- fixed wrong behaviour if the "Reconnection period" is 1

Major differences 2.5/Release:20050429 from the 2.4/Release:20041126 version

New Features on this release include

1. Comport and Comserv:
- added the new setting "Disconnect with the current client and connecting to a new client"

The following bugs have been fixed

1. Virtual COM ports driver:
- fixed some significant bugs (including driver initialization problems)

Major differences 2.4/Release:20041126 from the 2.3/Release:20040707 version

The following enhancements have been made

1. Comport and Comserv:
- For the Server mode, added the "Data fork" option that allows data sent from a single COM port to be received by multiple Clients and data sent from multiple Clients to be received at a single COM port
- Added the "Number of retries" option for the Client mode with the "Enable reconnection" on
- All windows and dialog boxes have the "Help" button now
- Added the "Save list" button to save data from the Statistics window to an ASCII file

2. Tracing:
- In the Trace dialog, added the "DumpFile" menu item to save trace information after PC crash

The following bugs have been fixed

1. Virtual COM ports driver : - Improved the virtual COM port driver that allows running on multi-processor and Hyperthreading machines now; - some other significant bugs were fixed.

Major differences 2.3/Release:20040707 from 2.2/Release:20040223 version

The following enhancements have been made

1. Comport and Comserv :
- implemented new graphic interface with the XP-style outlook;
- implemented the "Monitor" facility to watch data flows;
- added the STATUS icon to reflect the state of connection;
- implemented the "Advanced" button to activate the dialog to make additional settings;
- the Comport session icon can be moved to the system tray bar;
- the software was depeloped with using the .NET technology.

2. ComServ NT Service Settings under WinXP :
- newly created virtual COM-ports can be used without rebooting PC;

The following bugs have been fixed

1. Virtual COM ports driver :
- the Virtual COM port driver was not operational on multiprocessor or HyperThreading machines.

Major differences 2.2/Release:20040223 from 2.1/Release:20030915 version

The following enhancements have been made

1. Comport and Comserv:
- implemented the new element, "fork", in the TCP/IP Server mode. The "Data fork" setting must be enabled to send all data received from the network to all serial ports from the list. And vice versa, all data received from any serial port is sent to the network. This provides splitting of the serial data flow.

2. Installation under Windows NT/2000/XP:
- any configuration may be easily copied from one PC to another during the installation procedure.

3. ComServ NT Service Settings:

- the DuplexDr sub-package provides creating of pairs of virtual COM ports "connected-to-each-other".

2. Comport and Comserv:
- the Timeouts parameters (common for all ports) can be changed;
- made some other improvements.

3. Virtual COM ports under Windows 9x:
- implemented the "None" and "Hardware" flow control modes.

The following bugs have been fixed

1. Virtual COM ports generation under Windows 2000/XP:
- fixed some serious problems.

2. Comports and Comserv:

Undocumented Features

1. Comport and Comserv:
- You can select one of three modes for RTS flow control if "Flow control" in the Serial Setting is set to "None".

Behavior of Comport/Comserv for these modes is implemented according to the MSDN Library, i.e., the following flags are set up after opening a COM-port:
- fInX, fOutX, fOutXDsrFlow, and fOutXCtsFlow are all set to FALSE
- fDtrControl is set to DTR_CONTROL_ENABLE
- fRtsControl is set to RTS_CONTROL_ENABLE.

To select the mode for the RTS flow control behavior (if "Flow control" in the Serial Setting is set to "None"), the "RtsControlForNone=..." line can be inserted into the "[COMPORT]" and/or "[COMSERV]" section of the "xwp.ini" file (that is in the home directory of the package).

The "RtsControlForNone=..." setting provides the following modes:
- RtsControlForNone=0
With this setting, flag fRtsControl is set to RTS_CONTROL_DISABLE after opening a COM-port.
RTS_CONTROL_DISABLE disables the RTS line when the device is opened and leaves it disabled.
- RtsControlForNone=1
With this setting or if this line is absent, the software works as in the previous version, i.e. flag fRtsControl is set to
RTS_CONTROL_ENABLE after opening a COM-port.
RTS_CONTROL_ENABLE enables the RTS line when the device is opened and leaves it on.
- RtsControlForNone=2
This setting makes "GetCommState" before "SetCommState" without changing parameter "PortDCB.fRtsControl" for RTS flow control.

To take the mode into effect, you should do the following:
- Stop port mapping
- Select the mode of your choice
- Start port mapping again

Known problems and limitations

1. Virtual COM port Driver under Win9x
- does not work with VB Applications.
- does not work under simple Win95.

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".
