BOSÂNOVA host-access software fully compatible with Microsoft XP SP2 Security Service Pack


Martin Pladgeman, president of BOSaNOVA, Inc., the North American Master Distributor of connectivity products from BOScom, Ltd., announced that all products featuring the award-winning BOSÂNOVA emulations are fully compatible with Microsoft's newest XP SP2 service pack.

"There has been some buzz in the industry that host-access emulation software might be rendered incompatible with Microsoft's Windows XP SP2, the post-beta, pre-release code now available for downloading. I want to reassure all BOScom customers that thanks to our ongoing development relationship with Microsoft, we have verified that our host-access software is fully compatible," explains Pladgeman. "Whether you download XP SP2 now, or wait for general availability later this summer, have no fear: our products work, as always."

The BOSÂNOVA host access software is included in the following BOScom products:

  • BOSÂNOVA XTC Thin Client
  • BOSÂNOVA TCP/IP, a TCP/IP-based software suite including SQL-based data transfer
  • BOSÂNOVA Client, an APPC-based software suite included SQL-based data transfer
  • BOSÂNOVA Plus, a software/hardware kit for Twinax connectivity, supplied with PCI cards.

BOScom's Jadvantage web-to-host software ( also passed the tests, but it requires some additional configuration on the PC.
