REAL/32 WIN Server
IMS are proud to announce the launch of REAL/32 WIN Server version 1.00. This
product is a major enhancement to REAL/32 network connectivity, allowing
Microsoft Windows 95/98/NT and other SMB compliant clients to share REAL/32
drives and printers. In order to utilise the functionality of REAL/32 WIN
Server, REAL/32 version 7.8 needs to be pre-installed onto the host machine.
REAL/32 WIN Server features and benefits:
|Uses industry standard networking protocol SMB (Server Message Block)|
Benefit – Typically there is no need to purchase extra client software as
Windows has the networking client built in.
|Reduced cost of ownership|
Benefit – The Client side only needs one network card to access
REAL/32 host and other Windows machines, the overall cost of the solution
is therefore reduced.
|IPX or TCP transport standards|
Benefit – By designing the WIN Server to use the IPX and TCP standards,
IMS makes routing through Wide Area Networks easy.
|Uses the REAL/32 ODI stack|

drivers, allowing customers greater choice, (including 100mb).

Customers can map network drives and devices as if they were local.
