Minor corrections and improvements
GlinkProxy is a server application designed to provide persistent host connections for Glink clients running on Windows and Android platforms where the connection from the client device is unreliable. This may be because the device enters sleep mode or goes out of Wi-Fi range. If the client connection to the proxy server is lost for some reason, the server will retain the connection to the host. This allows the client to reconnect to the server again and continue seamlessly from the point at which the connection was lost.
Glink for Android is available on the Google Play Store and in G&R's online webshop as four different apps:
