Since ABACUS 4 runs on the Linux operating system it is fully TCP/IP
The world standard for data communication (used in The Internet) affords
quick and reliable communications between any number of computers in one
or more networks.
SLIP, CSLIP, PPP serial speeds up to 115KBaud
For remotely sited installations where dial-up telephone, or radio communications
is required any of these protocols may be used between locations.
Since the communicating protocol is TCP/IP ABACUS 4 systems may
be directly connect to The Internet and engineering (even operator) functions
may be performed from anywhere in the world! (Subject of course to the
normal UNIX security regimes)
The display system is based on a client/server model, so the display may be
seen on any suitabley configured network connected operator station. License
free client software (based on
TCL/Tk ) for Linux, UNIX, Windows and
Mac is available.
