VIP OnNet32 provides enhanced TCP/IP network support that's better than Microsoft's basic built-in utilities for Windows 95.
If you've ever attempted to use Win95's basic networking features to maintain simultaneous LAN and dial-up Internet connections, you know it can be a chore. OnNet32's TCP/IP protocol stack can run in multiple instances, allowing a workstation to simultaneously retain separate IP addresses for a network adapter, modem and ISDN connection. The Dialer-Connection manager lets you set up profiles for asynchronous modems, ISDN cards, null-modem cables and CDPD devices. The enhanced TCP/IP protocol stack also supports many features not available with Win95's standard TCP/IP connection, including BootP Internet log-ons, SOCKS security, and the IPv6 and Mobile IP additions to the TCP/IP protocol standard.
For $450 for a single-user license, you're really buying this package's increased TCP/IP functionality and bundled server applications.
