Procomm Plus 1.1 (shareware)

ProComm, from Datastorm technologies, was a powerful and very popular telecommunications program for DOS and Windows.

ProComm started out in 1985 as a shareware program, initially called TERMULATOR, written to fill the gap left by shareware PC-Talk when its author died.

Shareware ProComm featured a built in phone directory, file transfer protocols for uploading and downloading, and automatic redial. The commercial "ProComm Plus" includes a scripting language, more terminal types, additional file transfer protocols, context sensitive help, support for 8 COM ports, and a professionally written manual

Initially ProComm competed with Microsoft Access (telecommunications), Crosstalk, Relay Gold, and PFS Access. Later, it competed with QModem and Telemate.

Note that the ProComm product is essentially a different product line from "ProComm Plus" and does not parallel the same version numbering. ProComm Plus was released a few years after ProComm. ProComm was kept on as a shareware product, while ProComm Plus was their commercial product.
