FarSync XOT Runtime

The FarSync XOT Runtime software provides an API to support applications that previously required an X.25 interface to instead use XOT (X.25 over TCP/IP) as the communications method for PCs and Servers running Linux.

Product Summary

FarSync XOT Runtime has been developed to provide high performance and very reliable XOT connectivity for Linux. FarSync XOT Runtime for Linux inter-operates with the FarLinX Mini Gateway’s XOT support and other third party XOT devices, which can allow a complete X.25 network to be replaced by TCP/IP including IPv6, eliminating hardware and costs just leaving a short X.25 connection to the host. This diagram illustrates this.
