[Thinlinc-technical] Removal of serial port redirection

Hello, Pierre -

The last time I had anything hooked up to a serial port on any computer that was on the network was a Qume daisywheel printer sometime in the 1990's.  We only use networkable devices now, such as laser printers with ethernet ports, and one USB interface printer (Dymo Labelwriter) that is networked via an HP Jetdirect.

We do still have some serial port lab instrumentation, but that is connected directly into a laptop with the relevant software on the laptop and no need to have that instrumentation integrated into our network.

We do not have a need for serial port redirection.

Thanks for a terrific product.

Hello everyone,

We are discussing removing the serial port redirection feature from
ThinLinc in the near future. Our impression is that no one uses this,
and the effort spent maintaining it is better used elsewhere.

So this is an opportunity to get your voice heard if you actually are
using this feature. :)

In such a case, we would also like to know a bit more about how your are
using. E.g. what devices are you using it for?
