Specifications, Features and History

IPCOMServer version one was released about three years ago with little features. Parameters could only be changed by specifying different command line parameters at run time. The user was also bound to using certain IP port numbers. ioX Solutions completely stopped supporting version one and has since released IPCOMServer version two. Version two was rewritten in C++ Builder. The software was taken by the author to TIGME.COM since ioX Solutions ceased operations. Version 3 is now available and it is no longer distributed as freeware.
