Attachmate's RLN Application Server

Speed Dial Your Remote Applications

Even when your connection is low bandwidth, you can get high performance with Attachmate's RLN (Remote LAN Node) Application Server powered by WinFrame. The new NT-based version of the RLN remote access server uses Citrix Systems' WinFrame to turn any 486 or Pentium into a high-performance application server. It lets remote users run applications on 386 PCs without upgrading their computers.

The RLN server runs applications at LAN speed over dial-up connections. Attachmate claims its new RLN runs remote applications three times faster than standard dial-up solutions. Remote users can access the Internet through Web browsers running on the RLN application server. They can also access applications without installing them at the desktop by running them on the RLN server. The node server accommodates up to 60 concurrent users.

ARCserve 6 for NetWare

Friendlier Backup and Storage Service

ARCserve 6 for NetWare offers new user-friendly features. The storage management and backup software has a Windows 95-like interface, Status Wizards for easy backup and centralized administration capabilities, and disaster recovery protection. Version 6 is a completely integrated NetWare 4.1 application, and supports all Windows workstations including Win95 and NT, as well as DOS, OS/2, UNIX, Macintosh and online databases.

A running cue card application takes you step-by-step through backup and restoring tasks, and an Error Wizard automatically identifies errors. For data recovery, ARCserve 6 takes a snapshot of a server environment and synchronizes it to the backup media. It can then automatically rebuild the server from a single tape and disk with a minimal NetWare installation.

All administrative views are consolidated to a centralized location, so an administrator can manage multiple servers from a single screen.

Let Those Charts and Diagrams Flow

EasyFlow 3.0 takes advantage of 32-bit functionality for charting and diagramming, yet it doesn't leave Windows 3.1x users behind.

The new version is geared toward Win95 and NT users, however. As a 32-bit app, it runs faster on these OSes when loading charts and libraries, as well as in screen-redraw and line-routing operations. It also takes advantage of right-clicking and drag-and-drop support. EasyFlow 3.0 includes a Quick Setup printing option, giving you the ability to print in binder, wall or single-page format.

These enhancements let you perform even complicated tasks in much less time.

New shape libraries are also included. One contains all 50 states that snap together to form a U.S. map.
