Since they have meen bought out by cisco does this mean the software is no longer usable or can someone else take over developement or what?


Do I have to stop using the versions I do have?
Can I make a copy of the version I have available for download from my website?


Any info?

    Dear reader:

    I'll try to answer your question(s) to the best of my ability:

    >>Since they have meen bought out by cisco....

    I cannot say if Cisco bought Psionic; I know they took over psionic.com but that's the extent of my knowledge.


    >>does this mean the software is no longer usable ...

    I understood the Trisentry suite was distributed under the GNU license. By reading the license agreement I don't see anything that would indicate that you have to stop using it (or developing) in the event of ownership transfer - Best ask Cisco this question.

    In so far as your other two questions; again these are license related and would best be answered by Cisco.

    Hope that helps...

    Yours truly,
