What’s New in the SLNet 5.3 Release

Licensing
For security purposes SLNet is licensed to specific servers. A license key tied to the server ensures you can track your SLNet licenses and prevent unauthorized uses. Install SLNet on a target server, it activates temporarily and provides a license request file that you email to the SeattleLab license group. A license key file is generated and sent back to you. It easily installs into your SLNet system to authorize that server for the licensed time period and the number of concurrent users.

Windows 2008 and 2012 support
SLNet 5.3 fully supports Windows 2008 and 2012 servers.

64 bit MSDOS Support
SLNet 5.3 fully supports 64 bit MSDOS applications such as SAPConsole 7.3.

Improved Performance and Reliability
SLNet can handle thousands of user connections with modest requirements.

Improved Admin Interface
The SLNet configuration interface has been reworked and improved for ease of use and more flexibility. For larger organizations, it is easier to configure users.

More Parameters
Additional parameters have been added for customization of users, terminal types, and system settings. SLNet is more flexible and offers powerful choices without complexity to make any telnet environment connect to applications smoothly and reliably.

Unicode and UTF-8 support
SLNet now has full support for international languages – single and double byte character sets. You can set the font and code page to meet any need.

Broadcast Messages
SLNet can broadcast any message to any number of users without interrupting their work flow.

User Status
The SLNet console shows all connected users and their status and latest activity.

Extended Logging and Playback
New SLNet logging has been added for everything a Telnet administrator would need. This includes a full playback capability where you can see every keyboard action and all internal SLNet processes.

Multi-layer configuration – user, terminal, system
SLNet offers a powerful way to manage customizations by passing up settings from system to terminal to users. This allows customizations to be done at a high level and automatically passed through to users.

Security
SLNet can lock down terminals so they can only reach specific applications and be prevented from getting to a command prompt.

Manage Multiple SLNet Servers from a single interface
The SLNet Configuration panel has a server selection. You can select any SLNet server on your network and change its configuration settings.
