FileWave 1.7 adds directory services, LDAP support

updated 08:20 am EDT, Tue September 21, 2004

FileWave 1.7 released

FileWave today announced an update to its flagship software suite, . The new version allows businesses of all sizes to distribute Mac OS X software easily and rapidly across networks. Version X 1.7 adds directory services integration using the LDAP protocol for better support of open standards and industry tools. The software management tool includes three modules: FileWave XServer, XAdmin, and XClient. FileWave XServer centrally stores all data relevant to end users, while FileWave XClient is installed on end-user systems. It is free of-charge to qualified academic customers that sign up for a two-year support contract.

"With our new support for LDAP based directory services, system administrators now have the ability to integrate FileWave with their LDAP based directory servers," said Ben Forsyth at FileWave. "In those cases where a customer doesn't use an LDAP based directory server, clients can be imported from a standard text file. This new, and often requested, directory services integration, allows for the speedy creation of clients on the FileWavetm XServer. This release really signals the first step in our efforts to provide greater support of open standards and industry tools."
