Katalix Systems Ltd announced a major update to its ProL2TP suite of software for Linux systems today.

The updated software, which provides server and client functionality for the L2TPv2 and L2TPv3 protocol, has been enhanced to take advantage of widely available cloud services.

More than three years in the making, the new version of ProL2TP handles more connections than ever, and is ready to deploy into off-the-shelf servers, virtual machines, or cloud instances.

James Chapman, founder of Katalix Systems Ltd, said:

"ProL2TP has been in the market for more than ten years now, and we've seen great results with networking OEM customers using our source code licenses. But for this 2.0 release we wanted to give Internet Service Providers a real alternative option for their L2TP deployments."

"We think our product's ability to run in VMs or in the cloud offers unrivalled flexibility in comparison to an expensive hardware solution"

Designed for Linux systems, ProL2TP provides support for L2TPv2, L2TPv3, PPP, and PPPoE connections, and has been tested extensively with implementations from network equipment vendors including Cisco and Juniper.

Engineers wanting to test the software can take advantage of a new set of demonstration tools hosted on the product website, which consist of preconfigured virtual machines showing ProL2TP in action.

Companies seeking to integrate ProL2TP into their own products can opt for custom build support, or for full source code licenses to extend or modify the software to their requirements.

ProL2TP 2.0 is available now from, with free trials available on registration.
