OPEN DOOR NETWORKS SHIPS NEW LOGGING PRODUCTS
SUPPORTS ADVANCED REAL-TIME ANALYSIS ON BOTH WEB AND FILE SERVERS
ASHLAND, OR. -- July 13, 1998 -- Open Door Networks Inc., creator of the
first real-time log analysis products for Macintosh Web servers, announced
today that it had begun shipping AFP Logger 1.0 and LogDoor Real-time
Server Monitor 2.1. The powerful combination of AFP Logger and LogDoor
enhances Open Door's position as the number one vendor of products which
help Macintosh server administrators in understanding how their servers are
AFP Logger 1.0, announced in May, brings real-time logging to AppleShare IP
file servers. AFP Logger works with any AppleShare IP file server to
provide a detailed log of accesses to the server from both TCP/IP and
AppleTalk, and includes a real-time display of the server's operation.
Logging both user and file access detail, AFP Logger provides AppleShare
administrators with much-needed information on how their Apple Filing
Protocol (AFP) server is being used, which files are being accessed the
most, and potential security and other problems with the server.
"Open Door's AFP Logger enhances AppleShare's file serving capabilities by
providing administrators with detailed information on access activity on
their servers", said Bill McGlasson, AppleShare IP Marketing Manager. "AFP
Logger continues Open Door's tradition of creating innovative, easy to use
products for Macintosh servers."
AFP Logger works especially well when combined with the new LogDoor,
version 2.1. The LogDoor Real-time Server Monitor, a version of which is
bundled with AppleShare IP, pioneered the field of real-time monitoring
through advanced, multi-domain real-time analysis of accesses to Macintosh
Web servers. Version 2.1 has been enhanced to include real-time analysis of
accesses to AppleShare (AFP) file servers as well as Web servers. LogDoor
2.1 provides AFP log analysis on both a file/folder and a user basis, and
is critical to understanding the wealth of data produced by AFP Logger.
"LogDoor was one of the first tools to provide real-time Web server log
analysis on any platform," said Alan Oppenheimer, president of Open Door
Networks. "In combination with AFP Logger, we believe it is now the first
tool to provide real-time AFP log analysis as well."
AFP Logger supports AppleShare IP 5.0.2 or later, and requires System 7.6.1
or later. Certain features of AFP Logger require Apple's newly-announced
AppleShare IP 6.0. LogDoor 2.1 requires system 7.5.3 or later and, in
addition to AFP Logger, supports any Web server which outputs the
Macintosh-standard WebSTAR log format, such as the AppleShare IP Web server
and WebSTAR version 1.3.1 or later.
Evaluation versions of AFP Logger 1.0 and LogDoor 2.1, plus additional
details on the products, are available immediately through the Web at

The retail price for a single copy of AFP Logger is $299, with an
educational price of $199. Through September 1, the product is available at
the special introductory price of $199 ($149 educational). LogDoor 2.1
continues to be priced at $249 ($149 educational). Upgrades to LogDoor 2.1
