FarLinX X.25 Gateway X.25 to XOT and X.25 to TCP/IP Appliance L/HCG

E1 version added! FarLinX X.25 Gateway X.25 to XOT and X.25 to TCP/IP Appliance L/HCG http://t.co/NU2zRLwOuv pic.twitter.com/AvkLvLKFWL

The FL2611N uses an E1 link (RJ48) as opposed to older style serial cables that the rest of the FL26** family deploys. This makes it suitable for installations requiring E1 connectivity.
The FarLinX X25 Gateway product range is the third generation of X.25 Gateway products from FarSite, providing a very flexible powerful gateway for your X.25 migration needs at a very affordable cost. It incorporates all the popular features of the previous product ranges with an improved browser interface and new comprehensive set of online statistics, connection logging and status change alert functions to put you in control. The condition of the Gateway can be monitored from a browser with current line status, real time line and data statistics and real time active user activity available. There are also daily activity logs with a selectable level of detail, automatically archived on a daily basis. The SNMP support can provide alerts for a number of different conditions including critical events such as line down and line up. Dual Gateway support is available such that 2 Gateways can share a common IP address to provide automatic switch over support for a range of conditions including X.25 line down and Gateway failure. Any such failures and switchover events will generate SNMP alerts so the network operator can instantly know what’s happened.
The product can support protocols when the X.25 Host system treats the incoming X.25 data as a character stream. It can also convert the data when a header is used to describe the message payload within the TCP connections and remove this header on the X.25 virtual circuits. Data types supported include: RFC1006, Cisco RBP and special character delimiting. Dynamic routing is supported where the Client TCP application determines the X.25 address and call parameters used at the time the connection is established. XOT is supported so that the X.25 network can run over the top of an IP network. The Gateway can provide connectivity to several different Host systems at the same time with each can have different data conversion configurations. This Gateway can be used in conjunction with ISODE’s X.400 Server’s to provide X.400 messaging over X.25.

Device-side Pin Assignments for IU-100, IU-110, and IU-120

This information is applicable to the following Synchrotech part numbers.

These USB to serial devices feature DB9 connectors, frequently used in RS-232 applications. RS-422 and RS-485 tend to use different connectors, so speciality cables (e.g. DB9 to Mini Din 8) are often needed to accommodate certain serial peripherals. The above image and  table should be helpful in selecting or designing application specific cables to deploy with the IU-1** series USB to Serial device.

See the user manuals for the individual devices for further information including: DIP Switch settings, and internal jumper settings.

"To a large extent, the mainframe’s longevity is a result of two major architectural innovations first introduced with S/360. The first was the notion of a family of computers, from low to high performance, all based on the same instruction set which allowed customers to upgrade to larger systems as well as to future models without having to rewrite their applications. The second was OS/360, a common operating system that supported the various members of the S/360 family except for the smaller ones which ran a subset with more limited capabilities. Today’s z/Architecture  and z/OS are direct descendants of the original S/360 and OS/360." —Irving Wladawsky-Berger, Wall Street Journal

Linux AIO (All In One)

Linux AIO project was started 2014-07-16 by merging projects:

  • Ubuntu AIO
  • Linux Mint AIO DVD
  • Linux Mint “Debian” AIO DVD
  • Debian Live AIO DVD

That was a reasonable decision.

Our plan is to bring some of the major Linux distributions (Ubuntu and flavors, Linux Mint, Linux Mint “Debian”, Debian Live, Fedora, openSUSE) with different desktop environments on one ISO file that can be burnt on one DVD or USB flash drive. Every one of them can be used as Live system, with no need of installation on hard drive, or can be eventually installed on computer for full experience.

  • Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Ubuntu GNOME, Xubuntu and Lubuntu on one ISO (i386, amd64 and efi ISO)
  • Linux Mint Cinnamon, MATE, KDE and Xfce editions on one ISO (32bit, 64bit and efi ISO)
  • Linux Mint “Debian” Cinnamon and MATE editions on one ISO (32bit, 64bit and efi ISO)
  • Debian Live stable GNOME, KDE, Xfce and LXDE releases on one ISO (i386, amd64 and efi ISO)
  • Fedora Live Desktop, KDE, LXDE, Xfce, MATE Compiz spins releases on one ISO (i386, amd64 and efi ISO)
  • openSUSE releases on one ISO (i386, amd64 and efi ISO)

If the size of ISO images for 32-bit, 64-bit and EFI version exceed the capacity of a DVD and if the size of ISO images for 32-bit, 64-bit and EFI version is larger than 5GB and can’t be uploaded to Sourceforge we can make a Mix and Lite versions that can fit on a DVD and that can be uploaded.

For creating the ISO images for EFI releases we used Grub2 and for all other releases Syslinux.

For every ISO we made md5sum and torrent file.

ISOs are tested in VirtualBox.

Itself Linux AIO don’t brings something new, spectacular, nothing that has not been seen. The project is not perfect, there are some problems. On some of thems we can’t influence, while others we are trying to solve and overcome them. During this time, since the project started, we can boast a good user response, a large number of download ISO images, and innumerable articles on the many famous portals/sites/blogs that deal with Linux and Free software. Definitely, Linux AIO did not go unnoticed, what’s more, whatever happens in the future Linux AIO has already made its mark.

Linux AIO is an interesting project because its final outcome is different. Each project aims to be sustainable in the long run, to have a longer life, while for us it’s the opposite. Our wish is that the teams/communities behind GNU/Linux distribution point to the need for this type of distribution of GNU/Linux system, and to adopt this method of distribution. Which would lead to shutdown Linux AIO project.

Datavideo DAC-7 Analog to SDI Converter

Datavideo’s DAC-7 is a small, extremely portable but powerful mini converter that enables users to convert the output from any camera, including prosumer level cameras, to professional SD-SDI for easy connection to existing professional or broadcast equipment; for example SDI switchers such as Datavideo’s SE-900, SE-1000, or SE-3000 (in SD mode). The DAC-7 can accommodate two channels of audio input via RCA or balanced XLR and embed them both in the SDI signal, requiring only one SDI cable for both video and audio transmission. DAC-7 converts component, composite, and S-Video into SDI video (SD only). Simple to mount, the DAC-7 mounts between camera and tripod for ease of use. The analog to SDI converter is available in NTSC or PAL video standards (not a dual standard device).

The TechGirls are so great. They came to Tumblr HQ yesterday and our engineers answered their questions about Tumblr, about tech, about being a woman in tech, about the future of tech, oh, all kinds of stuff. “Totally the happiest panel ever,” according to alittlespace.
