Internet Components

File Transfers

Upload and download files using FTP, SFTP (SSH) and HTTP, along with secure file transfers using SSL and TLS. You can also search for files, delete and rename files, move folders and perform other management tasks on the server.

E-Mail

Send and retrieve e-mail messages using the SMTP, POP3 and IMAP4 mail protocols. Compose and process multipart MIME e-mails with HTML formatting and multiple file attachments with only a few lines of code.

Terminal Emulation

Connect to servers using the Telnet or Secure Shell (SSH) protocol to capture screen output or create an interactive terminal session. Emulation is provided for standard ANSI and DEC VT terminals.

Remote Commands

Execute commands on a server and capture the output using the Secure Shell (SSH) protocol or the legacy Remote Shell (RSH) protocols. Perform remote administrative tasks and monitor system performance and availability.

Newsfeeds

Download newsfeed content from sites using the Rich Site Summary (RSS) format. This component can be used to monitor feeds to check for content changes and collect aggregate data from a variety of different websites.

Text Messages

Send text messages to mobile devices using SMS (Short Message Service) gateways without requiring a third-party service. Notify your users when there are important updates or a critical event occurs.

Usenet News

List newsgroups, download files and images, and post news articles using the Network News Transfer Protocol (NNTP). Supports authentication and secure connections using SSL/TLS.

Custom Servers

Design your own custom server protocol or embed a standard FTP or HTTP server in your software to provide data access and remote management features. Secure connections are supported using SSL and TLS.
