A third party stack developer has lashed out at Microsoft for giving away a vanilla TCP/IP solutions and said the software giant lacked 32 features which made it unscalable for corporations.
Dave Hebert, network product manager at Seattle-based WRQ, which has just released NFS Connection for Windows NT, said large corporations needed more than the vanilla stack given away with Windows 95.
He said: ?Microsoft affected TCP/IP stack vendors when they shipped it for free. Our solution works better.?
According to Hebert, large users were concerned that software linked together heteregeneous systems in their organisations and Microsoft?s options did not do so.
He said that his and UK distributors Wick Hill customers, which include Barclays Bank and other large users, could not link their systems together using a vanilla system.
The NFS product, he said, allowed end users to maintain their investment in Unix based systems. He thought Unix still had a lot of life in it. He agreed that Windows NT clients were beginning to make their appearance across enterprises but IT managers needed to link such systems to large servers which remained Unix based.
