[2:30 PM] PC MACLAN Updated With Major New Features

Miramar Systems, Inc. has announced a complete Windows NT to Mac networking package, PC MACLAN. As Mac OS based machines creep their way back into mainstream use, any application simplifying cross-platform connectivity is welcome. According to Miramar Systems:

Miramar Systems, Inc. announced today its first complete networking solution for Windows NT-to-Mac connectivity. PC MACLAN for Windows NT v4.1 now comes bundled with PC Migrator, A.K.A. and DataViz's MacOpener enabling users to connect, rename and migrate files between PCs and Macs on a network or removable media. The utility bundle includes the following applications:

PC Migrator : Miramar's fast file renaming and moving utility. PC Migrator adds DOS file extensions to and replaces unrecognizable characters in Mac file names while migrating them over a network from a Mac to a Windows PC.

A.K.A. : Miramar's Mac-based file renaming utility adds DOS file extensions and replaces illegal characters to Mac file names while they reside on the Mac in order to improve cross-platform productivity in a mixed network environment.

DataViz's MacOpener : DataViz's MacOpener enables Windows PCs to open, read and write to Mac-formatted media such as floppies, Zips, Jaz, and other removable media.

PC MACLAN for Windows NT v4.1 now runs as an NT service providing an enhanced level of security as the user no longer must be logged on for users to access shared resources. The upgrade also offers greater integration between NT's User Manager and PC MACLAN's Users and Groups. In addition, the application supports Macintosh resource fork compatibility on NTFS volumes and complete compatibility for NT Services for Mac (SfM).

PC MACLAN is available for US$199, with additional each additional license costing US$99. You can find more information at the Miramar Systems web site.
