FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MIRAMAR DESIGNATES PERSONAL MACLAN CONNECT AS FREEWARE
The Original PC-to-Mac File and Printer Sharing Connectivity Solution
Available at No Cost to Windows 3.x Users
SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - March 24, 1999 - Miramar Systems announced
today that it's launching its award winning Personal MACLAN Connect
(for Windows 3.x) software as a worldwide Freeware package.
Personal MACLAN Connect for Windows 3.1 and Windows for Workgroups
3.11 is still the only PC-based cross-platform networking product to
provide bi-directional file and printer sharing between Macintosh and
Windows 3.x PCs. It offers users from both platforms a method for
sharing files, disk drives, PostScript printers, CD-ROM drives and
other resources on a mixed network.
"We decided to create a global freeware program for Personal MACLAN
Connect based on the success of our academic give-away," explained
Renee Cooper, Miramar Director of Marketing. " We had been offering
our 3.x solution free to schools for over a year. As a result, we
discovered there are still many non-academic 3.x users who need to
network with Macs and want to save money by sharing printers."
Personal MACLAN Connect is the cornerstone of Miramar's PC MACLAN
line of PC-to-Macintosh interoperability software. Its core
technology has since evolved into PC MACLAN with versions for Windows
95, 98 and NT.
Personal MACLAN Connect requires a 386 PC or higher running Windows
3.1 or Windows for Workgroups 3.11 and a PC Adapter Card for
Ethernet, LocalTalk or Token-Ring that is NDIS 3.0 or ODI compliant.
Personal MACLAN Connect may be downloaded directly from Miramar's
website at http://www.miramarsys.com/products/personalconnect.htm, or
from the Internet's leading Shareware/Freeware sites. An upgrade path
to PC MACLAN for Windows 95/98 is also available.
