ShareTool adds features
Yazsoft has announced ShareTool 1.2.2, an upgrade to its Bonjour-based remote access application. ShareTool allows users to access Macs from remote locations, with support for all Bonjour-based services, such as iTunes music sharing, screen sharing and more. New in v1.2.2 is a major reworking of the user-interface, with emphasis on simplicity of use, updated ShareTool protocols and a built-in Help menu. Also new is remote printing ability and Sparkle support. Version 1.2.2 also offers remote login detection. The new version is available now for $20 (two-user license is $30, a five-user license is $75), and requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or higher.
ShareTool offers auto-configuration for UPnP or NAT-PMP routers, and runs encrypted over TCP/IP. It also supports dynamic domain names and works over VPN connections. The software can share Apple File services and iPhoto services in addition to iTunes sharing. ShareTool can be run in demo mode for 15-minute intervals for trial purposes.
