Vicomsoft Releases Update To Internet Gateway
Vicomsoft has announced a new version of their popular software gateway app Internet Gateway. The new version brings the routing software to version 6 and includes new features and improved performance. According to Vicomsoft:

Version 6 incorporates a new high performance transparent caching server that significantly speeds up Internet browsing for network users. It also includes an exclusive Offline Library Mode that allows browsing of cached content even when not connected to the Internet.

The Vicomsoft integrated caching server automatically saves incoming web content on the server's disk, while simultaneously delivering it to requesting clients' browsers. The content is then delivered at high speed to network users on all subsequent requests. This direct cache-to-browser delivery avoids delays experienced by users resulting from Internet access bandwidth limitations, ISP performance restrictions, general Internet congestion and slow remote host response time. It further optimizes use of available Internet access bandwidth, accelerating the delivery of non-cached data as well. Sites with high speed Internet connections (cable modem, DSL, T1) and those with lower speed access (modem, ISDN) will both gain. Vicomsoft's unique combination of router and caching technologies transparently and automatically provides caching for all browsers on the LAN.

An administrator can choose to permanently retain cached Internet data such as graphics, movies or literature. A Catalog function enables all network users to view the contents while the Offline Library Mode allows redisplay of cached content to any user, even when the LAN is not connected to the Internet. This is particularly useful for educators who wish to collect specific information on a topic and focus the attention of their students on the collected data.

The Internet Gateway also incorporates 'CyberNOT' filtering which enables an administrator to prevent access to undesirable Internet locations. Many educators and parents use this to allow unsupervised student and child access to the Internet.

The internet Gateway is designed to be installed and set up in minutes, even by non-technical administrators.

Pricing for Internet Gateway starts at US$215 and a trial version is available from the company's web site.
