Salt Lake City, Utah – Century Software today is proud to announce the release of TinyTERM ITX 2 for iPad, which provides secure wireless access to mission critical legacy business applications using high-quality terminal emulation. Enterprise software applications previously restricted to desktop use can now be securely accessed in mobile environments. Mobile terminal emulation allows saving money through sustained use of unchanged enterprise software applications, while taking advantage of the benefits of wireless and mobile technologies.
TinyTERM ITX 2 for iPad provides 21 exact DEC, Wyse and IBM terminal emulations for wireless access to UNIX, Linux and VMS systems. Comprehensive RSA/DSA key generation and management combined with SSH and telnet protocols allow very secure access over cellular or Wi-Fi networks.
Unlike terminal emulators using only the Apple on-screen keyboard, TinyTERM ITX 2 also features a fully customizable, on-screen PC-style keyboard with configurable function key and numeric 10-key layouts to facilitate rapid data entry and minimal retraining. For maximum usability, pinch and drag gestures allow quickly resizing and moving the application display with the keyboard shown. The keyboard can be set to partially transparent or quickly dismissed to use applications full-screen.
Application display can be precisely configured for each keyboard mode in both landscape and portrait orientations. When the keyboard is dismissed, the same information can be displayed full-screen with the font scaled to fit, or the number of lines and columns increased allowing more information to be displayed with the same font size.
Interoperability with other iPad applications is simple using copy/paste and support for application sessions running in the background. Preset configurations can be imported and exported via iTunes and email.
TinyTERM ITX 2 also works with all external Bluetooth and dock keyboards, with the arrow keys, function keys and all control keys supported. A configurable on-screen mini-keyboard can be shown to add keys not present in hardware.
* Compatible with iPad
* Requires iOS 4.3 or later
* 3.1 MB
