[10:00 AM] Trio Of Network Utilities From Maxum Updated

Maxum Development has upgraded their array of server tools. NetCloak, PageSentry, and Rumpus have all received maintenance upgrades. According to Maxum Development:

Maxum Development, best known for it's award winning line of Internet server tools, announced updates to it's NetCloak, PageSentry, and Rumpus products. The latest versions, NetCloak 3.0.2, PageSentry 2.5.2, and Rumpus 1.3.3 are all available now at the company's Web site. All three updates fall somewhere between simple maintenance releases and major feature upgrades.

NetCloak 3.0.2 offers greater flexibility in handling incoming e-mail messages and improvements for international use, in addition to a number of bug fixes and minor corrections. PageSentry 2.5.2 also includes several bug fixes as well as audible warnings when servers fail. The latest incarnation of Rumpus, version 1.3.3, allows FTP server files to be moved between directories and resolves a rare problem that occurs when launching the application on certain systems. All three packages also include a revised validation scheme, making Internet distribution and upgrades easier for users.

NetCloak, the very first Internet server application released for the Mac OS and a past "Eddy Award" winner, adds dynamic capabilities to any Mac-based Web site. NetCloak Pro now includes all the features of Maxum's popular NetForms product, which makes Mac Web servers interactive, as well as dynamic.

PageSentry provides reliable, high-level monitoring of Web, FTP, DNS, E-mail, and other critical Internet servers. Using client application Internet protocols, PageSentry tests Internet services and sends warnings or takes automatic action to ensure crucial servers are always functioning perfectly.

Rumpus is the premier FTP server for the Mac OS. This dedicated FTP server offers three different security models, scalable performance, and high-end speed, combined with the ease-of-use users expect from the Mac.

One user license's are available for each of the three products. NetCloak and Rumpus are available for US$195, while PageSentry is available for US$149. The most recent updates are free to registered users. You can find more information at the Maxum Development web site.
