IP 9.1 has been enhanced to integrate the Device Access Scripting Language (DASL) framework to facilitate communication with devices with XML API and CLI interfaces.


DASL framework is not supported on Solaris. It is applicable only RHEL 5, and RHEL 6 platforms.

DASL is used for creating device-independent access methods. DASL framework integration allows IP to provide multiple-vendor support quickly and easily. It is designed to encapsulate all device-specific information in a highly modifiable manner, allowing the main products to remain device-independent. The access methods include:

  • Telnet

  • SSH

  • HTTP
