September September 12, 2005: NetModem version 2.12 released

  • Under certain network conditions, NetModem could fail to communicate between the server and the client when either are run under Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1. This is resolved.

  • Optimized client trace function to avoid lag during a trace session.

  • The version 2.11 installer had an invalid version-upgrade setting. Because of this, users upgrading from 2.11 to 2.12 will need to uninstall 2.11 before installing 2.12. However the configuration settings will be retained in the process. Upgrading from any previous versions is not an issue.
