Century Software today is proud to announce the release of TinyTERM Pro for iPad, a new high-end terminal emulation solution which provides printing, macro-based automation and keyboard mapping with access to legacy applications. TinyTERM Pro is designed for non-technical users or uses where pre-configured, fully automated application access is required. Secure application access can be automated for deployment into the field where users have no knowledge of the connection process.

TinyTERM Pro for iPad provides 22 exact DEC, Wyse, IBM and ADDS terminal emulations for secure access to UNIX, Linux, VMS, Pick, Unidata and other systems. Comprehensive RSA/DSA key generation and management combined with SSH and telnet protocols allow very secure access over cellular or Wi-Fi networks.

TinyTERM Pro enhances Century's TinyTERM ITX 2 terminal emulator capabilities by adding support for printing, ADDS Viewpoint emulation, onscreen keyboard remapping, macro recording and automation capabilities including auto-login, auto-connect, auto-reconnect, prevent disconnect and one-touch startup.

Printing support includes the ability to take screen contents and host transparent print streams and redirect them to AirPrint-compatible printers, or forward print data via email. Host transparent printing allows wireless printing to a local nearby printer without host reconfiguration as the iPad's location is changed. Options allow grouping of print or screen data into single or separate print jobs or emails.

The new ADDS Viewpoint VP/60 terminal emulation allows access to a large set of legacy systems previously without a mobile solution, including Pick, Unidata and Universe business and retail management systems.

Macro recording and playback allows the interaction between the user and the remote application to be recorded and later played back to automate the process. User name, password and other information can be stored seperately or prompted for so that configurations can be prebuilt without including sensitive information, and deployed to large user groups. An auto-connect option allows connecting immediately after the user starts TinyTERM Pro, and auto-login will execute any pre-defined macro.

Keyboard keys can be remapped using the onscreen user interface to an automated action, a macro, or a sequence of characters, allowing maxiumum flexibility for automating or customizing a process during host access.

TinyTERM Pro (v1.0) is $29.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Utilities category. Telephone and email technical support are provided free of charge.
