Thursby Software Systems has released updates for its Mac networking products ADmitMac and DAVE. ADmitMac is a tool that provides a solution for connecting Macs to Windows networks that allegedly provides improved networking stability over that of Apple's standard Leopard offering along with complete Active Directory support. The new release includes enhanced deployment tool and completely rewritten Dfs module, which is smaller and faster than the previous version. The deployment tool allows ADmitMac to be installed on multiple systems within the network from a single workstation. The newly enhanced Dfs module supports Microsoft's Distributed File System that allows shared folders to reside on multiple servers for load balancing and data redundancy.
Meanwhile, DAVE v7.1, also released today, includes the newly enhanced Dfs module and the ability to configure volumes that mount at login. Both ADmitMac v4.1 and DAVE v7.1 are compatible with Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) and 10.5 (Leopard).
These updates are available free of charge for customers with active support agreements or those who purchased ADmitMac v4.0 or DAVE v7.0. Customers with ADmitMac v3.x or DAVE v6.x can purchase an upgrade.
