NetPresenz 4.1 Released and Discussed

Send Article to a Friend

NetPresenz 4.1 Released and Discussed -- Peter Lewis of Stairways Software has released version 4.1 of NetPresenz , a popular Web, FTP, and Gopher server. The main area of improvement centers on increased stability under heavy load conditions, but the Web server now includes enhanced CGI support, CGI authentication, and server-side includes for creating dynamic Web pages. You still can't beat NetPresenz's price at $10, and 4.1 is a free upgrade for users who registered after 01-Jan-96. Users who registered prior to that date can upgrade for $5.
