    October 2020: COMPROTware:Library 4.20.6 MS Win32-Dll/PC Linux-Shlib with Software Key

    With this COMPROTware:Library release we introduced a new licensing alternative: Now license granting for MS Win32-Dll/PC Linux-Shlib can also be made by a software key.

    This considerably simplifies the use of COMPROTware:Library on virtual machines.

    A separate license is necessary per protocol and per communication direction. Use is NOT limited by a hardware key or to a computer.

    This version can be used on any number of computers, even in a virtualized productive environment. API for .NET and API for Java are included.

    For more details on our protocol stacks see COMPROTware:Library.

    October 2020: Development infrastructure modernized

    We have worked intensively on our development infrastructure in the last few weeks.

    With our virtual machines we moved away from VMware ESXi and VMware Workstation and towards [ Proxmox VE ] (based on QEMU/KVM). We have the impression that this makes handling and installing updates more efficient. At the same time, Proxmox VE copes much better with USB for VM guests with Linux. We ave finally switched off our oldest VM server (Dell PowerEdge), some Intel NUCs and Apple Minis now form our virtualization cluster.

    As an additional file version management, we are now using [ GitLab ] locally in our network. This allows our developers to easily access the central master repository with our Sourec code. Because of the distribution of the individual source code files to the various protocol stacks, derived products and customer-specific projects, we will stick to our own file version management as the central repository.

    If you have any questions about our development infrastructure, please e-mail us: e-mail info@realthoughts.de

    December 2019: COMPROTware:Testtool 2.19.6 released

    In COMPROTware:Testtool 2.19.6 protocol communication can now be imported from another source: With support of ABB Power Grids in Mannheim, DE we implemented the import of ABB MicroSCADA/COM600 logging-files. Textfiles containing protocol logging, created with the communication monitoring/debugging interface of ABB MicroSCADA/COM600, can now be imported into CPTT. All protocols implementd in CPTT are supported.

    More changes:

    • Further improvements and fixes around Remote I/O implementation (RIO), in particular with the integration of ABB RTU500 series: Among others monitored ABB SPA-Bus communication is now correctly displayed.
    • COMPROTware:Testtool 2.19.3 is adapted to and successfully tested with MS Windows 10 version 1909 (November 2019 Update).

    June 2019: COMPROTware:Testtool 2.19.2 released

    Many customers use COMPROTware:Testtool to ensure the availability and stability of their grid. In the 2010s to achieve this, it is necessary to carry out day- or week-long protocol monitoring or simulations.

    We continued to work on this goal in the current release: When used for days or weeks a very large amounts of data is collected. In order to compensate this, we worked on our MLG file format and now compress the stored Frames. The file sizes were more than halved depending on the protocol, thus speeding up file reading.

    February 2019: COMPROTware:Testtool 2.19.1 released

    With COMPROTware:Testtool 2.19.1, we have successfully completed some open tasks:

    • Experimental: TLS-secured TCP/IP connections now for MODBUS TCP/IP too, both for client and server simulation. In this way, we support TLS-secured connections for all our TCP/IP-based protocols.
    • All protocol implementations now use the CPLB Design pattern "Frame Scanner NGT 2018": This provides greater robustness and problem tolerance over faulty characters on a serial line. Additionally, the new Frame Scanners are more resource-efficient, resulting in an enhanced user experience.
    • Many minor improvements ...
