Issue Details

Is DataSocket supported on Linux, Solaris, and Macintosh?


You can only use DataSocket as a client on Linux, Solaris, and Macintosh. This means that from a non-Windows machine you can publish to and read from a DataSocket Server, but the server itself must be running on a Windows machine. 

Additional Information

The DataSocket Server application is built on Windows-based ActiveX technology and so is only available for Windows environments.
