"It is a thin embedded device that runs Linux as its
operating system and X as its graphical environment. UT stands for
Universal Terminal, and after trying the MaxTerm on a customer
site, I believe it has earned that distinction."
"The MaxTerm UT's software makes it a truly remarkable device. I
am not talking about just Linux (that's a gimme) -- it has an
ICA/RDP client (for connecting to Citrix or Microsoft's Windows
2000 Terminal Server), a 3270 client (for connecting to
Mainframes), a terminal client that supports WY60 (for lots of
text-based accounting apps), VT100 (the good old standby), Netscape
(including Java), and much more. This device can connect to just
about anything, and even supports PPP. Of course, you can get all
this software for free, from vendors or via the Internet, but the
MaxTerm has all the software you're likely to need pre-installed.
If there is a piece of software it does not have, you can run it
via X or ICA."
"Installing the MaxTerm UT on a client site is a breeze; you
just unpack it and plug it in. You do have to configure your
connections and tell the terminal whether you prefer a static
configuration, BOOTP, or DHCP, but no software installation is
necessary. As you know, installation can take a great deal of time,
especially if you have numerous devices to install."
