Open Door Slashes Price on ShareWay IP Personal Edition

Internet security solutions provider Open Door Networks Inc. announced Monday it has cut the price in half of ShareWay IP Personal Edition, its TCP/IP file sharing product to connecting Macs running OS X 10.4 Tiger to AppleShare-compatible servers.

ShareWay IP is the only way that systems running Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger can access Personal File Sharing on Mac OS 7, 8 and 9 machines, the company said, since Tiger cannot use the legacy AppleTalk protocol to connect to Personal File Sharing or other AppleShare-compatible servers.

Open Dooris ShareWay IP products, which run on Mac OS 7.5.5 through 9.2.2, let Apple Filing Protocol servers like Personal File Sharing share their files over TCP/IP as well as AppleTalk, thereby making those files available to Tiger systems.

Open Door sells an upgrade to the Mac OS 9 version of ShareWay IP with important added security features, as well as ShareWay IP Personal Edition for machines back to Mac OS 7.5.5 (including 68K machines) which do not otherwise support AFP over TCP/IP.

ShareWay IP now retails for US$39 and can be purchased from the companyis Web site.
