A feature was added to enable/disable the SSH server on the target device. The feature is found under the Tools drop-down menu.

This release corrects the following:

Following a controller reset, Map95 will re-read the firmware version from the target device to determine if the firmware changed and to reevaluate which version of PuTTY is required to support the device.

----------

Map95v2 v2.29 Release Notes 2/7/2023

1.0 INTRODUCTION

This release corrects the following:

The new version of PuTTY, included in the v2.27 release, requires the Visual C++ 2019 Runtime libraries be installed on the system. While these libraries are usually already available on the system, there is no guarantee they are installed. The Map95 installer was modified to include the Visual C++ 2019 Runtime installer. The Visual C++ 2019 Runtime libraries need only be installed once. After that, Windows system update will automatically update the libraries. A checkbox in the Map95 installer will allow the user to choose whether to Launch the Visual C++ 2019 Runtime installer. If the libraries are already installed, the installation will fail and display a message indicating a new version of the library is already present on the system.

Note: Map95 v2.28 was a test release.

----------

Map95v2 v2.27 Release Notes 1/24/2023

1.0 INTRODUCTION

This release adds the following feature:

The Map95 package now includes two version of PuTTY, v0.77 (released in 2022) and an unlabeled version from 2014. Map95 will selectively launch PuTTY, for SSL connections, based on the primary controller’s firmware version. This is to address SSL compatibility as Loop migrates the SSL implementation to WolfSSL. Telnet and serial connections will utilize PuTTY v0.77 in all instances.

O9500-PTN v2.7.1 and later will utilize PuTTY v0.77 for SSL connections.

The O9500R, O9400R, O9400R-CC16, O9400-PTN and O9550R will continue to utilize the old PuTTY version for SSL connections.

----------

Map95 v2.14 Release Notes 10/28/2019

1.0 INTRODUCTION

This release adds the following features:

This release adds mapping support for the 1FOMB card on the O9500R-PTN. The O9500R-PTN firmware does not currently support reading or modifying the 1FOMB configuration via SNMP. For this software release, Map95 will assume the 1FOMB card is configured for framed mode.

A configuration file may be specified as a command-line argument to Map95.exe. This will be used as the default configuration file. The purpose of this is to allow users to create shortcuts that load a specific configuration file. The user must specify the full path to the configuration file. If there are any space characters in the full path name, the entire path must be enclosed in double quotes.

----------

Map95 v2.13 Release Notes 8/29/2019

1.0 INTRODUCTION

This release corrects the following:

Map95 did not probe the HDE1 or HDT1 card to determine the number of installed ports. It assumed the cards had 32 ports. This only applied to the O9500 and O9500PTN.

Map95 did not probe the B155-622 card to determine the number of active ports. It assumed both ports were active, but depending on the mode, only one port may be active. This only applied to the O9500 and O9500PTN.

This release adds the following:

This release adds preliminary mapping support for the 8DBRA card to the O9500, O9500PTN, and O9550. However, at this time, the 8DBRA card is not fully supported by any of these platforms.

----------

Map95 v2.12 Release Notes 12/21/2018

1.0 INTRODUCTION

This release corrects the following:

Correct the "phantom arrow" problem. After clearing a map, Map95 may still indicate a few non-existent cross-connects. However, once the user drills down on the path, the arrows disappear. This was due to a memory initialization problem.

----------

Map95 v2.11 Release Notes 9/10/2018

1.0 INTRODUCTION

This release adds support for the O9400R-CC4.
The following Trib cards are supported:

E1/T1
E3/T3including T3-M13 mode.
B155/622

Other Trib cards may work, but have not been tested.

This release adds support for the E3/T3 card on the O9400R-CC16. This includes T3-M13 mode.

Potential issues:
Firmware upgrade for the controllers and cards have not been tested. Map95 bug fix:

This release corrects a bug when manipulating granularity on the O9400R-CC16.When a user configures a cross-connect, Map95 needs to prevent the user from modifying the granularity that effects the cross-connected path. However, Map95 was incorrectly blocking the user from modifying granularity on adjacent paths that are not cross-connected.

Map95 does not correctly detect the 16 and 32 port versions of the E1/T1 card. This problem has been corrected for the O9400R-CC4 and O9400R-CC16, but not for the O9500.

Additional Feature:
Added a button to the "Select Device" dialog to launch a serial console. This is to allow easy access for initial configuration.

----------

Map95 v2.10 Release Notes 8/15/2018

1.0 INTRODUCTION

This release adds support for the O9400R, with CC16 controllers. It does not support the CC4 or PTN controllers.
The following Trib cards are supported:

Other Trib cards may support mapping, but have not been tested.

Potential issues:
- Firmware upgrade for the controllers and cards have not been tested.

Map95 problem fix:
- This release corrects a problem with the "select device" dialog. If the user manually entered the configuration file name instead of using the file browser, it would not open correct file.

Additional Features:
- A larger font display option was added. Under the "View" Menu there is a click box for "Large Font". When checked, the Map display will use a larger font size making the map easier to see on a modern high-resolution screen. If combined with SNCP View, the Map95 view will be 1325 x 803, so the user will need a wide-screen monitor with a resolution greater than this.

----------

1.0 INTRODUCTION

This release corrects the following:

When storing user-defined endpoints to the endpoint comment file, there was an error in the index field used to identify the controller card and also the in-band interface. This would cause the comments for these cards to get lost.

Endpoint comments would be lost if the user added/modified a comment, then performed a "Rescan Device" operation or "Select Device" operation.

This release adds the following modification:

Empty comments will be purged from the comment file. Previously, if a user added a comment, then later removed it, there would be an empty record left in the comment file. Now, the empty record will be removed.

1.0 INTRODUCTION

This release adds the following feature:

This release modifies Map95v2 support for the o9550. At some point around the O-9550 v1.09.02 firmware release, Loop changed the way in-band channel cross-connects are reported. Map95v2 was modified to work with the new mechanism.

----------

Map95 v2.02 Release Notes 11/16/2015

1.0 INTRODUCTION

Loop's firmware release, v3.04.01 (0082) for the O-9500, changed the underlying SNMP mechanism for reading the low-speed card cross-connect map. As a result, Map95 and Map95v2 were not compatible with the O-9500 running v3.04.01 or later. This release modifies Map95v2 to support the new mechanism.

This software release supports the following low-speed cards on the o9500:

Q-T1 (tested - also supports right-click configuration)
8RT-B (tested)
8-EM (tested - also supports right-click configuration)

Add the option of performing a "System Warm Reset", "System Cold Reset", "XCU Warm Reset", or "XCU Cold Reset" following XCU firmware upgrade.

----------

Map95 v2.0 Release Notes 9/17/2015

1.0 INTRODUCTION

This is the initial release of Map95 Version 2, which supports both the 9500 and the 9550. We are temporarily treating Map95v2 as a separate product from Map95 until we have more customer feedback. This is because Map95v2 works differently from Map95 and current 9500 customers may prefer to continue using Map95 Version 1. Both versions can be installed at the same time, and Map95v2 can use Map95 Version 1 configuration files.

The biggest difference between Map95v2 and Map95 is with regard to pre-reading the cross-connect map. Map95 pre-reads the entire map on program start. Map95v2 reads the map on-demand, as the customer navigates through the cards. The change is due to the large number of cross-connects that the 9550 supports. Pre-reading the 9550's cross-connect map can take a very long time, on the order of 10s of minutes, which would be frustrating when the user simply wants to view or make a small mapping change.

Map95v2 uses the same controller keys as Map95.

----------

Map95 v1.04 Release Notes 1/15/2014

1.0 INTRODUCTION

This release adds the following feature:

A copy of PuTTYtel is included in the install package and will co-install with Map95. PuTTYtel is both a terminal emulator and a telnet client. Map95 has been modified to launch PuTTYtel directly from the tools menu, giving the user a quick and easy way to open a console session with the O9500.

----------

Map95 v1.03 Release Notes 1/2/2014

1.0 INTRODUCTION

This release corrects the following:

Reading the number of ports on an LS-Optical card, resulted in the 1-Port card showing 4 ports.

----------

Map95 v1.02 Release Notes 9/27/2013

1.0 INTRODUCTION
