The Distinct Family of Networking Products
ONC RPC for Windows, IntelliTerm and Network Monitor
Distinct Corporation has been developing and publishing quality software products for software developers including ISVs and network administrators since 1984. Its many products include:
ONC RPC for Windows and Java|
Distinct's family of ONC RPC/XDR Toolkits include ONC RPC for 32-bit Windows , ONC RPC for 64-bit Windows, ONC RPC for Windows .NET, and ONC RPC for Windows Mobile, as well as ONC RPC for Java.
The Distinct ONC RPC / XDR Toolkits come with both the RPC client and RPC server run time libraries allowing developers to create complete distributed application with a single toolkit (separate deployment licenses are available). Distinct’s RPC toolkits allow companies to leverage their past investments in legacy systems by providing the opportunity for their developers to easily port or write new front end applications for their existing distributed applications. The Distinct RPC Toolkits are based on the industry standards for ONC RPC/XDR ensuring interoperability across heterogeneous systems.
IntelliTerm for TN3270, TN3270E, TN5250 and VT420 emulation
IntelliTerm, is a super fast and easy-to-use Terminal Emulator for TN3270, TN5250 and VT420 on the market
Distinct IntelliTerm is a terminal emulator that allows you to access data on diverse corporate information servers such as IBM mainframes, IBM AS400, UNIX and VAX systems from a single application. It includes full featured terminal emulation for TN3270E, TN3270 for Type 3278 and 3279, with support for 3179G, 3192G, 3472G and 3279 S3G graphics, TN5250 and VT52 through VT420. Distinct IntelliTerm operates over the Telnet protocol running over TCP/IP, an area in which Distinct is a market leader. Distinct IntelliTerm integrates related utilities such as multi-connect FTP with SOCKS proxy support, print server support with LPD and 3287 printing support, substantially reducing your training and support costs.
The Developer edition of Distinct IntelliTerm comes with support for several APIs such as WinHLLAPI and OLE Automation, allowing developers to quickly produce easy-to-use front end interfaces to the already existing more complex legacy applications by using relatively simple techniques such as screen scraping of data fields from the mainframe or AS400 systems. In doing so, they are able to protect their company's investments in legacy systems, while creating user-friendly front end applications to improve usability and thus increase efficiency.
Distinct Network Monitor is a network packet analyzer that translates the communication packets into understandable English so that you do not have to be a communications expert to understand the traffic captured.
Network Monitor includes a very sophisticated network statistics and trending module, which provides live statistics and comes with a highly customizable report builder. You can create different reports to get very detailed information regarding the traffic that has traversed your network. These reports will quickly help you to pinpoint any traffic bottlenecks or problem systems on the network segment being monitored. For best traffic visibility you will need to do the traffic capturing on the mirror port of your switch or firewall. These ports are added by the various switch manufactures, such as Cisco and 3COM, specifically for you to be able to monitor the traffic that is traversing your network. With this capture you will be able to detect problems early, or before they even become visible or big problems. Most modern switches have a mirror port although different manufactures have different names for this port such as SPAN (Switched port analyzer) port on Cisco systems or RAP (Roving Analysis port) port on 3COM switches. What the mirror, SPAN or RAP ports do when configured, is receive a copy of all packets that went through one or more of the other switch ports, or the entire VLAN (depending on how the port was configured), so that a monitoring product such as Distinct Network Monitor is able to collect them for further analysis.
