Consulting and Custom Development
- TCP control can be used to implement standard upper-layer protocols (such as WHOIS and Time), as well as any custom protocols you want to develop.
- UDP control can likewise be used to implement standard upper-layer protocols (such as Network Time Protocol), as well as custom protocols that use datagram-level communications.
- Daemon control accepts incoming connections, then TCP controls can be created on new threads, implementing custom multi-threaded server applications.
- DNS control is implemented directly (does not use Winsock services), so you can do address look-ups, reverse address look-ups, and mail address look-ups (from MX records).
- Ping control checks if a host is reachable.
- Supports COM+ Component Services.
- Can be used in a multi-threaded environment.
- Includes a royalty-free license.
- Wrapper classes included for convenient integration into Visual C++.
- Use in COM-supported environments like Visual Basic (VB6), VC++, Microsoft Office VBA (Word, Excel, etc), Delphi, PowerBuilder and more.
