ARA Options

Send Article to a Friend

The Apple Remote Access family now includes several products that make it possible for users to select precisely what they need. These include a personal all-in-one package that replaces the original ARA 1.0 package, multi-port server packages, multi-user client packages, and upgrades for owners of ARA 1.0.

The Remote Access Personal Server, retail $249, includes both client and server software, licensed for a single user to use at "both ends." This is similar to the ARA 1.0 package, which included both client and server functions in the package.

The Remote Access MultiPort Server package, retail $1,799, includes the server software and client software for four users, and a multiport serial NuBus card and cable. The Remote Access MultiPort Server 4-Port Expansion Kit, for $1,499, leaves out the server software, but provides the multiport serial card, four clients, and cable.

The Remote Access Client 10-pack retails for $599, and adds a ten-user license to your existing ARA server.

Owners of ARA 1.0 can upgrade to the ARA Personal Server for $79. Owners of ARA 1.0 who just need the new client software can upgrade for $29. Proof of purchase is required.

Trilobyte's ARACommander client software, which requires ARA, fully supports ARA 2.0's new features, and also adds quite a bit of its own functionality, in ease-of-use and security areas. It costs $35 for a single-user copy, but only $675 for a 100-user license (there are various stages in between as well). In my opinion this software is well worth the extra investment.

Shiva and Cayman both have hardware servers that don't require a Macintosh to act as the ARA server, and I believe both have upgraded or are about to upgrade their products to support ARA 2.0. Global Village is about to introduce a hardware server that has slots allowing installation of its PowerBook internal modems, which will take up much less space than the hardware servers that use external modems.
