You have two (or more) programs that need to communicate over a LAN or WAN.
You want to be able to shut down your Applications across the network.
Your client has the Internet on the brain, but how do you use it?
You're not a network expert, but now you need to do things like network communications,
file transfers and that sort of thing...
connections are unreliable and painful to work with. You need a robust solution.
| Simply put, NetTalk allows
your programs to communicate with each other over LAN or WAN or internet in as
easy a way as possible.
Implemented as a set of objects that plug into
either ABC or Legacy applications, adding network communications to your programs
is trivial. You simply drop in one of the pre-written objects and watch the magic.
On a LAN there is no configuration necessary.
NetTalk is robust. That
means it was designed with those less-than-perfect connections in mind. It caters
for things like Dynamic IP addressing, dial-up connections, it even allows your
IP address to change halfway through a file download (like if the dial-up drops
and gets restarted). The NetTalk protocol supports packet checking for errors
and error recovery (without sending the whole thing again).
If you need
to communicate with non-Clarion applications then NetTalk also helps. It allows
you to create simple TCP/IP clients or servers. In other words it's trivial to
open, read and write, and close TCP/IP "Ports". Using this functionality
we're currently building objects for email, ftp and so on.
the RAS function set, which means you can control the connections on a dial-up
machine. Make use of connections that the user makes and/or schedule your own
It's hard to believe that with all this we're still not
yet satisfied. As of the time of writing this we still want to add on the fly
packet encryption and compression. Plus we still want to add a lot of support
for Internet protocols like SMTP, POP3, FTP and so on.

"I am very happy with this product!" Marco Antonio
"I bought NetTalk yesterday. From within 30 minutes my email
works excellent even in HTML form => you are gods => NetTalk is 99% best
thing ever happened to Clarion. Thank you." Zdravc Balantic
"I've got a production app that is NetTalk and so far no problems. I appreciate
the work being done on this product, and despite the steep learning curve for
a programming hack like myself, it is an incredible product, and one that will
inspire all kinds of new software by the imaginative developer / entrepreneur."
"BTW - the NetTalk product is VERY good and
I really like it a lot (as I do all of your products)." Charles Edmonds
"Thanks for the ftp code. Nice, very nice." George Bamber
"And double W.W.W.O.O.O.O.O.W.W.W!!! I decided to try NetTalk (www.capesoft.com)
to improve the e-mail freezes, not even thinking about the other issue(s). I've
had NetTalk in my toolbox for months, but had never even read the help. So I opened
the help, read a few minutes, and in less than a half-hour, I had the inter-session
browses updating (didn't even know NetTalk did that!) and a shutdown template
added, and it works like a champ!! Made me look like a hero, and the VB guys'
jaws drop to the floor!! I just want to thank Bruce for a fantastic product!!!
And anyone writing programs for network use, YOU NEED TO LOOK AT THIS." Rocky
"Very useful product. Love it!" Antonio
"Just a brief note of appreciation for your concerted
efforts in helping Hwa and I run this communications issue to ground." Everett
"Much thanks for another great product. I'm finding
uses for it in almost every project I've started in the last 4 months." John
"I am very happy with the support you guys are giving."
"PS. Excellent Support.... I'll be passing
the word around." Richard Beresford
"What, there are
people out there without NetTalk???" Lee Goolsby
Gold is Gold!!!" Glenn Hardin
"A truly great addition
to clarion!" Robert Linders
