Version 1.17 of the MOXA CN2600 Real TTY driver for Linux CN2600 terminal servers has been announced by CrispTech , and will provide the CN2600 series terminal servers with a redundant COM function in the Linux host.
A redundant COM mode gives system integrators the chance to create vigorous dual-LAN architectures for mission-critical industrial applications.
Just like the NT Real COM mode in Windows Real COM/Linux Real TTY/fixed TTY drivers, Redundant COM enables one multi-homed host to create two simultaneous connections to the CN2600. If the original network path from the host to the CN2600 becomes disconnected, then administrators can use the other network interface on the same host as a backup communications path to the CN2600, without any down time thanks to the redundancy.
Real TTY drivers and Moxa Windows Real COM drivers for terminal servers strengthen redundant system design by transmitting the same set of data simultaneously through two connections to the CN2600 so that the multi-homed host is able to archive the redundant operation. Moxa is the only vendor in the world to provide this exclusive, patent-pending redundancy technology on terminal servers.
