"The Software Group Limited releases Linux drivers and administration utilities for its SGP hardware adapter to the public domain under the Free Software Foundation's General Public License, version 2."

"The software is freely available as source code. The drivers interface with existing GPL synchronous wide area communications packages, connecting Linux with serial synchronous communications links running at speeds up to 4 Megabits/second. With these drivers and The Software Group's SGP hardware, Linux applications can now connect directly with up to sixteen wide area network links running Internet-standard PPP (Point-to-Point) network, CCITT-standard X.25 or CCITT-standard LAPB protocols."
