ShareTool 1.0 released
Bains Software has released the initial version of ShareTool, its remote access software. The program lets users tap into any of their Bonjour services via the Internet, including screen and file sharing, as well as iTunes Music Sharing. Routers supporting NAT-PMP or UPnP are automatically configured, and remote services appear in applications like Finder and iTunes without extra effort.
Network traffic is encrypted meanwhile, requiring the remote computer's username and password. ShareTool runs on Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later, and costs $20 for the full version; the program is shareware however, and can operate as a free trial version that only allows 15 minutes of access at a time.
