Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9942915A2] Method for selectively connecting computer stations (1326, 1340, 1356) in a plurality of communication devices, including the steps of receiving a connection request from a computer station to connect to a requested one of said plurality of communication devices, disconnecting the selected computer station from all of the communication devices, detecting if the selected computer station is configured according to the requested communication device, and connecting the selected computer station to the requested communication device, when the selected computer station is configured according to the requested communication device. A device for protecting secured areas in a computer system includes a communication interface (1342) for connecting to a network, a secured device interface for connecting to a secured area, a managing controller (1302) connected to the communication interface and between the secured device interface and the computer system, and a suspend and resume system.

[origin: WO9942915A2] Method for selectively connecting computer stations to a plurality of communication devices, including the steps of receiving a connection request from a computer station to connect to a requested one of said plurality of communication devices, disconnecting the selected computer station from all of the communication devices, detecting if the selected computer station is configured according to the requested communication device, and connecting the selected computer station to the requested communication device, when the selected computer station is configured according to the requested communication device. A device for protecting secured areas in a computer system includes a communication interface for connecting to a network, a secured device interface for connecting to a secured area, a managing controller connected to the communication interface and between the secured device interface and the computer system, and a suspend and resume system. The managing controller detects when communication between the computer system and the network is in progress, connects the computer system with the secured device interface when communication is not in progress, and disconnects the computer system from the secured device interface when communication is in progress. The suspend and resume system transfers the computer system from a state where communication is in progress to a state where communication is not in progress and vice versa.
