iRAPP 1.1 adds Mac server
Code Rebel has released a new version of iRAPP, a program which allows PC owners to run software from their Mac systems. When running, users can view Mac- or PC-only desktops, or combine the two for a "fused" look. Images and text can be swapped between operating systems, and any devices attached to a Mac can be accessed by PC users. The major addition to v1.1 is the Workgroup feature, which enables the use of a Mac as a Terminal Server, permitting several users to connect to a machine at once. With the new technology comes a new pricing scheme: a single-user license costs $80, but additional users cost $80 per PC. The PC client requires Windows 2000, XP or Vista, as well as a 1.8GHz Pentium 4; Macs must be running Mac OS X 10.4.8 or higher on an iMac, Mac mini, MacBook or Mac Pro.
