vrf Serial port problems

Question asked by VRFuser on Jun 17, 2008
Bill,

We have the problem in reverse - GreenLeaf has been around for many years; the question is how much longer will they last. I've got a GreenLeaf CommLib reference book copyrighted in 1984.  A few months ago I asked for some technical help and had an answer in a matter of hours so I know the company's still responsive. Their WEB site indicates ongoing product development but I don't think CommX has changed in years. My experience indicates that CommX is capable and mature (I have yet to find a bug) but its expensive compared with others.

I've been using it for at least ten years.
