COPSTalk 2.5 Connects Win95 and AppleShare IP

Send Article to a Friend

COPSTalk 2.5 Connects Win95 and AppleShare IP -- Apple's AppleShare IP 5 and ShareWay IP from Open Door Networks enable Mac users to access AppleShare volumes over the Internet. Until now, Windows 95 users couldn't access those AppleShare volumes over the Internet; with the release of the $159 COPSTalk 2.5 from COPS Inc., they can. COPSTalk is currently bundled with the AppleShare IP 5 Software Bundle CD, and upgrade discounts are available. You can also download a 10-day evaluation version. [ACE]
