Feature Release

PowerTCP Sockets for .NET contains easy-to-use TCP and UDP components that can help you create Internet client applications with only a few lines of code and convenient Events. The Ping component enables server verification using ICMP, UDP, and TCP, while the Trace component conducts an asynchronous Trace Route for fast response. The DNS component is not dependent on OS services, allowing for the use of any DNS server. Advanced SegmentedStream technology allows for data to be received up to a specific delimiter or fixed-length, which is ideal for building custom TCP-based protocols.

Updates in V4.3

This release features an innovative, elegant new design, making TCP/IP-based communications easier to work with than ever before. You can implement state-of-the-art multi-threaded operations, create sophisticated high-performance server applications and include SSL for airtight security. Highlights include:

  • Improved Asynchronous Support, which uses fewer resources, is more flexible, and produces code that is easier to maintain
  • Improved Use of .NET Features including generics and IPv6
  • SSL support for secure communications from a single method call

About Dart Communications

Dart Communications was founded in 1994 for the specific purpose of creating quality components designed to support Internet communication development. Dart's development teams carefully design each component for ease-of-use and maximum range of effectiveness for both beginners and advanced developers alike. The results are tools that function in many development environments, such as .NET, Visual Basic, Visual C++, PowerBuilder, ASP, Delphi, C++ Builder and Office 97/XP. Companies such as Chase Manhattan Bank, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, America Online, Compaq Computer, American Express, and thousands of consultants and individual project teams rely on Dart's quality code, breadth of capability, and customer service. Designed in object-oriented methods, the tools easily make the change from ActiveX to .NET framework, allowing these users to transition the product as appropriate for their own environments.
