OPEN DOOR NETWORKS SHIPS SHAREWAY IP 2.0
MACINTOSH FILE SHARING NOW AS EASY OVER IP AS OVER APPLETALK

ASHLAND, OR. -- February 9, 1999 -- Open Door Networks Inc. today
announced that is was shipping ShareWay IP 2.0, a major new release
of its groundbreaking Internet and intranet file sharing product.
ShareWay IP 2.0 makes sharing Macintosh files through Internet
protocols as easy as sharing the same files through AppleTalk, and is
the first Macintosh product to utilize the Internet-standard Service
Location Protocol (SLP). ShareWay IP 2.0 also includes additional
ease-of-use and security features requested by users.

"With Mac OS 8.5, Apple has made the Internet as easy to use as a
Macintosh," said Peter Lowe, director of worldwide product marketing,
Mac OS. "And now with ShareWay IP 2.0's support for Apple's Network
Service Location, Open Door Networks has made Internet-based personal
file sharing as easy to use as file sharing over AppleTalk networks."

"ShareWay IP has been critical to customers needing IP-based file
sharing for over a year," said Alan Oppenheimer, president of Open
Door Networks. "But until now they've had to give up some of
AppleTalk's ease of use to gain the power and reach of IP. ShareWay
IP 2.0 makes IP file sharing as easy as AppleTalk file sharing, while
at the same time advancing the cause of ease-of-use on the Internet
by pushing the envelope with SLP."

ShareWay IP 2.0 includes two new ease-of-use features previously only
available through AppleTalk file sharing: the ability, through SLP,
to dynamically locate and access servers (as with the AppleTalk
Chooser), and the ability to provide file service through a
transparent, OS-integrated mechanism. ShareWay IP also continues to
provide easy server access from Web pages through AFP URLs.

ShareWay IP 2.0 utilizes Apple's new Network Services Location (NSL)
technology, included with Mac OS 8.5, to dynamically register through
SLP, in much the same way that AppleTalk-based file sharing registers
with the Name Binding Protocol (NBP). Clients wishing to easily
browse and access ShareWay IP servers can utilize Open Door's new AFP
Engage! 2.0 product and NSL to display a list of available servers
and to initiate point-and-click access to those servers through the
standard AppleShare client. A copy of AFP Engage! 2.0 is included
with ShareWay IP 2.0.

ShareWay IP 2.0 also includes a new background-only mode of
operation. In background-only mode, ShareWay IP essentially becomes a
part of the Mac OS itself, transparently merging with the Mac's
built-in personal file sharing to provide seamless IP-based file
sharing. Users no longer have to worry about accidentally quitting
ShareWay IP, or wonder why it shows up in the application menu.
Finally, ShareWay IP 2.0 includes real-time logging features which
are essential to any comprehensive security strategy.

ShareWay IP is available in three editions: Personal, Standard and
Professional. Personal supports the Mac's built-in personal file
sharing; Standard supports any single AppleTalk Filing Protocol (AFP)
server, such as AppleShare 4.x, Windows NT or Novell NetWare;
Professional supports up to 256 AFP servers. Due to limitations with
Apple's SLP plug-in, only the Personal and Standard editions are
being upgraded to 2.0 at this time. A future version of the SLP
plug-in is expected to address these limitations, at which time a
ShareWay IP Professional 2.0 is anticipated.

Free evaluation versions of ShareWay IP 2.0 Personal and Standard
editions and AFP Engage! 2.0 are available from the ShareWay IP Web
site at http://www.opendoor.com/shareway/ . The Web site also
contains information about the Service Location Protocol, which is
key to ShareWay IP 2.0's ease of use. The prices for ShareWay IP
remain unchanged at $79 ($69 educational) for the Personal Edition
and $249 ($179 educational) for the Standard Edition. Volume and site
licenses are available. Upgrades from previous versions of ShareWay
IP Personal and Standard are also available, and are free to anyone
purchasing these products after January 3, 1999. All products can be
purchased directly off the Web site.

Open Door Networks, Inc., a pioneer in the field of Internet tools
for Macintosh computers, was founded in January, 1995 by Alan
Oppenheimer, an 11-year Apple veteran and co-creator of the AppleTalk
network system. Open Door's mission is to provide Macintosh users
with Internet solutions that are as easy-to-use and as powerful as
the Macintosh itself. Open Door Networks is located in Ashland,
Oregon.
