Is your iSCSI Initiator still being developed/maintained?

Postby Tim » Thu Jun 06, 2013 11:40 am

Only reason I ask is because in some cases the MS iSCSI Init is a bit buggy so I use your one instead.

For example: If I use Starwind to make a BlueRay optical drive available for remote use, the MS iSCSI software/driver will cause a BSOD x012E on the remote machine when trying to use the drive.
Your iSCSI Initiator works fine (as I would expect because you guys know your stuff).

Thanks

No. It's in legacy state and we have plans to drop it completely soon. You know the reason..........................

Ok, if your iSCSI initiator is unsupported legacy and the MS iSCSI is buggy enough to cause a BSOD, what other free iSCSI Initiator do you recommend?

Thanks

There are no other ones to go. You can still use StarWind just don't call for support if there are issues. Pretty much like with MS one.
