Networks company Bay Networks has introduced version 5.1 of its Remote Access Server suite and has included what it describes as ?hardware compression? with the package.
The software takes Microsoft?s point-to-point compression on both Windows 95 and Windows NT and allows people to transmit files across networks, said Bay.
And Bay has also built improved security features which include embedded remote authentication dial-in for users, and the ability to restrict users across a wide range of switches and routes, including addresses, hosts and ports.
According to Bay, the suite will be offered as a free upgrade from November 4th next for users of the Model 5399 Access Concentrator. The hardware compression cards cost extra if end users want more of them, the company said.
Hardware is faster than software at compressing files and the VNU Newswire understands that Stac, which creates microprocessors which can do the compression with a single chip solution, is one of the suppliers for the cards Bay is offering.
According to a press release from Bay Networks, the software rev will now support the so-called Multilink Multichassis Point-to-Point protocol, aimed directly at ISDN users.
The software also includes network management features which end users want, claimed Bay.
