Stallion Technologies was acquired by device networking manufacturer 'Lantronix' last month. With this acquisition, Lantronix purchased Stallion's multiport serial card and terminal server product families, in addition to the intellectual property associated with these products.
As a result, a new company called ePipe has been spun off from Stallion which focusses purely on enhancing broadband Internet and VPN connections. Click on these links for the relevant press releases -
ePipe products operating with VPN Access firmware will no longer be able
to provide terminal server specific functionality that was available as a
feature option within DCS. As of the next firmware release, ePipe will
discontinue the Remote Serial Port (RSP) and RFC2217 functionality within the DCS feature option for ePipe VPN Access Firmware. In addition the DCS feature will no longer provide support for "telnet listeners".
This means that host services such as Truport for UNIX, RFC 2217 compliant COM port redirectors for Windows, svr_tty and svr_print host software for UNIX will no longer be compatible with ePipe products using new VPN Access firmware.
Customers that are using the RSP/RFC2217/Telnet Listener functionality have two options:
Customers using ePipe products that support Multilink IP (ML-IP) firmware will not be affected.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused. Please contact ePipe
support with any questions.
