We have an in-house terminal emulator used by our clients to communicate with a server. It runs on all of the main Windows platforms. However it is not compliant with new regulations, so we need either to replace it or use it over SSH rather than Telnet. The server side already supports SSH, so this is just an issue with the emulator. It was built with CBuilder 6, but as we are now standardised on Visual Studio, we have not, nor do we intend to, purchase a newer version of CBuilder.

Having read the supported versions page, it sppears that the SecureBlackBox VCL components will not work with CBuilder 6. Can anybody confirm this or otherwise please? Also am I right in thinking that we would be able to use the DLL version instead without issues?

I'm currently just doing a feasibility study, but clearly any decision will depend on what solutions are compatible with our existing emulator and development environment.

Already answered by e-mail, but here's information for everyone:

Evaluation of SecureBlackbox for C++Builder 6 is not available due to bugs in it's linker (it fails with Access Violation when trying to link one of our packages). However, you *can* use SecureBlackbox modules by adding the source code of SecureBlackbox units to your project as part of the source file set. The idea is that linkage to EXE or DLL files work, while linkage to BPL package doesn't. This is why we don't provide evaluation version. Some of customers do, however, use SecureBlackbox source code in their C++Builder 6 -based products.

Sincerely yours
Eugene Mayevski
