VSGX and Lightspeed Supported Beyond 2014

Some folks have been confused by CompuCom's announcement of the end of Wang VS hardware support at the end of 2014. Legacy VS hardware will no longer be supported. This will not affect current VSGX [New VS] users except those few who have remaining legacy devices attached to their VSGX. TVS issued a statement, "VSGX Ongoing Support", on their site at http://www.transvirt.com/VSGX-Support.pdf, making it clear that TVS will continue to…See More

Accessing The VS Via Lightspeed From iPad

With the increasing use of iPads and other pad computing devices in the corporate environment, I want to pass on a solution from a Lightspeed customer for accessing the VS from an iPad. This solution utilizes Windows RDP and a terminal server. I would think that it could also be used to connect with desktop computers running Windows "Pro" versions or above via Remote Desktop.After several false starts, with RDP apps that did not fully extend the keyboard, they were able to find a working…See More

"Hi Thomas. I tried PDFill PDF and Image Writer, but I had the same problem you've got with docuPrinter. PDFCreator is the only tool I found that is easy to configurate and that work without pop up. For configuration it was quit simple as I have…"

"Great idea Bernard. I use an inexpensive PDF printer called "docuPrinter" on my Windows PC. I tried a few years ago to use it as a Lightspeed printer but it did not work due to the dialog that needs to pop up to enter the file name. I will…"

Secure Lightspeed Connections The Free Way

How many of you have used lightspeed to connect to the VS remotely? Now, how many of you have lost your ability to connect remotely because of newer, more strict security guidelines? Does your office have a VPN? If not, you can use SSH, or secure Shell, to connect to your New VS securely. You can use a free, easy to use Windows secure Shell client called "puTTY" to make a secure connection to the new VS. With version 2.9.4 or above of Lightspeed you can tunnel your Lightspeed connection…

2256GUI Also Available

Although I intended to introduce 2256GUI in a future article on common freeware tools that can be used to extend the VS experience it, I thought I would put it out there for community members now should they have a need for it. 2256GUI uses the freeware utility AutoHotKey to provide a GUI toolbar for the 2256net program for Windows.

The toolbar provides buttons for all 32 pfKeys as well as the Help, Erase, GL and Cancel keys, a screen capture button and buttons to grow…

VS_SendMail Available For Download

There have been some casual inquiries regarding sending emails from the VS and how and whether it was possible. TJ asked me to look into it back in April when I suggested that "it should be pretty easy." I had a bare-bones proof-of-concept application running in a day. I then turned that from a wholly hard-coded example into a usable example, sans documentation. Then, it was shelved for a while.

I recently picked it back up and tweaked it a little. I also added a bit…
