Netopia Timbuktu Pro 8.0
Netopia today released with significant improvements in security and ease-of-use. The software provides remote control and support over any LAN, WAN, Internet or directdial connection. Version 8 now boosts security by including data stream encryption and compression through a standards-based, integrated Secure Shell (SSH) client in addition to Timbuktu's own proprietary protocols. The Mac version features system authenticated asers, integration with Apple's Rendezvous zero-configuration networking protocol, and a Push Installer to deploy Timbuktu to remote computers. It is $95 or $180 (twin-pack). For customers who purchased one of the previous two full version releases of Timbuktu Pro, Netopia is offering a 50% discount on the new version.
