Radient Software Announces the Release of Secure CommNet 2.0 and CommNet 2.0

July 25, 2001 -- Radient Software, Inc. announces the release of Secure CommNet 2.0, a new 32-bit Windows application that supports dial-up, Telnet and Secure Shell (SSH2) connections over the Internet. This latest version offers encrypted logins, communication and file transfers to remote computers. Major new features in Secure CommNet also include TCP/IP port forwarding (also known as connection tunneling), FTP support during Telnet and SSH2 connections, VT220 terminal emulation support and expanded scripting commands. Concurrently, Radient Software announces the release of CommNet 2.0, which offers all of the functionality of Secure CommNet 2.0 but without the SSH2 support.

Powered by sshlib from Bitvise Ltd., Secure CommNet supports SSH2, a protocol that enables encrypted connections to remote computers, including password transmissions and file transfers. With SSH2, users are protected from IP spoofing, IP source routing, DNS spoofing, and capture of passwords and other data. Secure CommNet supports the following encryption algorithms: AES256, Twofish, Blowfish, Triple-DES, Arcfour and Cast-128. For message authentication, Secure CommNet supports HMAC-SHA1 and HMAC-MD5 algorithms.

"Great product for Telnet! Once I downloaded this program, I was in love with it. The shortcut buttons on top to Wordpad and Notepad make taking notes easier than ever. I've already had over 20 friends of mine download it, and all love it.” -- Serra Capilla (CNET review)  

Great Product. Highly Recommended. I have looked at many vanilla Telnet clients but still haven't found anything that compares to CommNet32. It's the only one I ever recommend to clients, friends, and associates. Windows is not exactly the best environment to try to telnet from, but if you must telnet from Windows, then this is the utility to use to do it. Very stable and does the job very nicely in a neat small package. Includes accurate emulators for almost all terminal types and some nice little extras like automated scripts.” -- Steve Williams (CNET review)
