Internet Components

File Transfers

Upload and download files using FTP, SFTP and HTTP, along with secure file transfers using TLS 1.2 or later and SSH 2.0. You can also search for files, delete and rename files, move folders and perform other management tasks on the server.


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.

Web Services

Send secure requests to any web service which implements a REST API in just a few lines of code with built-in support for XML and JSON payloads. Secure connections use TLS 1.2 or later with support for HTTP/2.

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.

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 TLS 1.2 or later.

Data Encryption

General purpose data protection using strong AES 256-bit encryption. You can easily encrypt files, blocks of data in memory and strings with a single method call. Combine with our data compression features to secure your private data.

Cloud Storage

Manage your application data using our private cloud storage service which enables you to securely upload and download data securely. No public third-party services are required, and there are no additional fees.

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 TLS 1.2 or later. Includes support for 64-bit article IDs.


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.
