Networking companies Shiva and Enterprise Solutions Development Labs (EDSL) have teamed up to introduce a shared dial-out product for Windows NT Workstation on Lans, using Shiva remote access servers.
The Net2Com software will allow users to access online services like America Online, the Internet and bulletin boards through a central server using PPP connections, without modems or phone lines.
Net2Com will also support fax-outs with WinFax Pro 4.0 and Eclipse Fax and has security options including password support and access to the Shiva Lan Rover user lists. That lets administrators decide which users will have access to the dial-out services.
The products are priced in the US at $99 for a five-user pack, with additional workstations costing $15. No UK prices are yet available. The software is downloadable from http://www.esdl.com.
