Genesis is a state-of-the-art TCP/IP stack for the Amiga computer. Combining
ease of use with advanced features, Genesis offers built in dialup Internet
connectivity and/or local area networking.
Genesis requires Magic User Interface (v3.8+) in order to operate.
Further information can be obtained from www.vapor.com or www.active-net.co.uk.
You can also register the software online via Vapor.
Feature list includes:
* Easy to setup. The software is fully configurable via a custom interface, no
need to edit text files. Offers simplicity, enabling a beginner to be able to
setup their stack within minutes, yet keeping the advanced features needed for
the professional user.
* Compatibility. Genesis is fully compatible with existing Amiga Internet
software. Based on the recognised and established AmiTCP Professional kernel
(v4.6), Genesis offers the highest possible compatibility with other net
products, no need for AmiTCP emulation.
* Built-in support. Genesis ships with modules for PPP, (C)SLIP and support
for other variations such as SANA-II etc. Supports Internet access by modem,
external ISDN TA, internal ISDN boards, ethernet (such as Ariadne or Hydra),
serial cards (Hypercom, IOBlix, GVP-IO etc) and other local networks (parnet,
null modem etc).
* Advanced PPP implementation: (MS)CHAP, PAP, Callback (WinNT compatible), VJ
compression, protocol field compression, MTU negotiation, magic number
negotiation, async map negotiation, MSDNS1/2 IP address negotiation, WINS1/2 IP
address negotiation, Compression Control Protocol (modules include - BSD
compress, deflate and MPPC). Also, PPP events control allows you to create
scripts to perform actions when PPP has been put on or offline.
* Dial control. Teach-me dialer, multiple phone numbers, configurable dial
* Comprehensive security. Secure kernel to prevent illegal attacks over the
Internet: SYN flooding, IP fragment attacks, IP address spoofing, land and fist
* Enhanced SANA-II. Powerful and improved SANA-II support allows the fastest
transfer rates across an ethernet network.
* Connection Wizard. Step by step Wizard interface to connect a user to the
Internet. Enter basic information, Wizard obtains the IP and DNS information
automatically and records your loginscript.
* Arexx interface and improved API - allows external software to check status
of interfaces, logged in user, active user and much more.
* Socks. Socks v4/5 client supplied as standard. Socks server avaialble, free
of charge, as a downloadable option.
* Multiple interface support. This allows you to connect and disconnect more
than one interface at one time. For instance, create two ethernet links between
an Amiga and Linux machine and another betweenyour Amiga and PC and then still
connect and disconnect from your Internet (dialup) connection, without the
other interfaces being affected. You can even launch Genesis on bootup so that
a local area network is put online automatically when you start your Amiga.
This is essential for a Siamese system, for example. You can then use Genesis
for modem dialup or route your dialup connection via the remote computer.
Multiple interface support is easy to setup and the interfaces are listed
within the main status window (shown here). Allows routing between interfaces.
* Multiple-user support. Full support and API for multiple-users. Create more
than one user and then log-on via the main status window (users can be password
protected to prevent unauthorised access). The multi-user API is currently
supported by a range of Amiga Internet software including Microdot-II, Contact
Manager and soon YAM (from r7), with more in the future.
* Multiple providers. Add multiple providers or provider configurations with
ease, then select these providers by point and click, from the main status
window. You might be testing two providers with a 30-day trial? Setup both
providers and flick between them.
* Access control. Parents have full time/access control over each user. The
system manager can setup time limitations (for example a user could be prevented
from connecting during the working hours 09:00-18:00). Genesis will
double-check the current time on connection, so that the user cannot
temporarily alter the system clock to fool software into thinking it is a
weekend, for instance.
* Advanced time/cost logger. Shows each user access (or overall access), time
and date and the cost of this access. Genesis shows statistical information to
help you monitor Internet costs and time usage.
