Open Door Networks Releases ShareWay IP 2.0

Send Article to a Friend

Open Door Networks today shipped ShareWay IP 2.0, an upgrade to their useful networking utility for making Macs with Personal File Sharing or older AppleShare servers accessible via TCP/IP (see "Share and Share IP Alike" in TidBITS 436). The main new feature in ShareWay IP 2.0 is support for SLP (Server Location Protocol), a method of dynamically locating and accessing servers, much like using the AppleTalk Chooser. Essentially, ShareWay IP 2.0-based servers register themselves through SLP, and then users can use Open Door's bundled AFP Engage 2.0 to display a list of available servers. Other new features in 2.0 include a background-only mode of operation, real-time logging, and enhanced security features. Due to limitations in Apple's SLP plug-in, only the Personal and Standard editions of ShareWay IP have been upgraded to 2.0; a future version of the SLP plug-in should enable Open Door to release a version of the multi-server ShareWay IP Professional. Upgrades are free for purchases made after 03-Jan-99 and otherwise cost between $34 and $89 for single user licenses, depending on the version of ShareWay IP. Discounts are available for site license upgrades, and evaluation copies are available for download.
