Group Logic offers AppleTalk protocol for Windows XP

AppleTalk for WinXP

Group Logic today announced the release of an OEM-only version of its product line for Windows XP Professional that includes the AppleTalk network protocol. "This solution fills the gap left by Microsoft's discontinuation of Windows 2000 Professional OS and its subsequent removal of AppleTalk from the replacement Windows XP Professional OS. Prior to the release of Group Logic's product solution, ISVs had been forced to migrate to the more expensive and hardware intensive Windows 2003 Server to obtain this key networking protocol."

"Microsoft's elimination of the AppleTalk has created significant cost and functionality problems for many ISVs and their customers," notes T. Reid Lewis, President of Group Logic. "Our OEM-only version of ExtremeZ-IP with AppleTalk for Windows XP resolves these problems. Furthermore, ExtremeZ-IP provides a rich programmer interface and strong developer tools to help ISVs more easily integrate their cross platform products," says Lewis. "ExtremeZ-IP enables ISVs to deliver their offerings on Windows XP saving them hundreds of dollars over Windows 2003 Server."



Group Logic's OEM solution delivers the AppleTalk protocol and other cross-platform features. The solution fully integrates both Mac OS X and Mac OS 9 with Windows XP Professional and Windows 2003/2000/NT Server versions as well as Windows 2003 Storage Server. ExtremeZ-IP provides authentication against Active Directory or other compatible directory servers and greater permissions control with the flexibility of using either the Macintosh or Windows permissions model. Other features include queue management, logging, PostScript Printer Driver (PPD) file management, clustering and support for numerous Windows print services.
