Multi-threaded Robust Server that runs as a Standard Windows Service

A single Flynet server installation can support over 500 simultaneous clients (250 is recommended for high usage scenarios) at speeds which surpass the desktop equivalent solution. In addition, the multi-threaded core at the heart of the Flynet Viewer server platform ensures a minimum network footprint, unburdening heavily trafficked networks. Flynet Viewer server runs on Windows Server (2008, 2008 R2, 2012, 2012 R2 and on Azure).

The Flynet server code was never part of a desktop terminal emulator; from its origins it was designed to be a highly efficient multi-threaded server side core service. This means that Flynet Viewer can support more concurrent sessions on any given server configuration than any other browser delivered emulation solution.

All Flynet Viewer communications made between the application server and the client are primarily conducted using WebSockets and where this is not supported HTTPs is used.
