NetWare Client IP Edition
Prosoft Engineering today released NetWare Client for Mac OS X IP Edition 2.0, an application designed to connect Mac systems to a Novell Network using the IP protocol. The software features an integrated login process, enabling the Mac to boot with a single login prompt and presenting the NetWare home directory on the desktop. Contextless logins allow users to login from anywhere on the internet by providing a username and password, and full context information is provided automatically. The NetWare Client 2.0 supports printing to a NetWare queue, allowing users to add jobs or delete jobs as desored. The client includes an entirely new browser as a standard application, rather than a menu bar item, and users may elect to launch the browser automatically on startup. The software runs natively on Intel-based Macs as a Universal Binary, and requires Mac OS X 10.4.2 or later. NetWare Client for Mac OS X IP Edition 2.0 is priced at $150 per seat.
