OPEN DOOR NETWORKS ANNOUNCES SUPPORT FOR WEBSTAR 2.0
SPECIAL PRICING, NEW HOMEDOOR VERSION
ASHLAND, OR. — November 20, 1996 — Open Door Networks, Inc. today
announced support for StarNine’s newly-introduced WebSTAR 2.0 server. In
addition to special pricing on its line of multi-domain products for
Macintosh Web servers, Open Door also announced that it will be shipping a
new version of its popular HomeDoor default home page server which takes
advantage of new features of WebSTAR 2.0.
Open Door Networks is the leading manufacturer of “multi-domain” products
for Macintosh Internet servers. These products enable a single Internet
server to provide independent services for multiple domains, greatly
leveraging the investment in that server and radically simplifying overall
administration and network management. Open Door today announced special
pricing for anyone purchasing a WebSTAR 2.0 upgrade: $80 off HomeDoor
(regularly $399), $70 off LogDoor (regularly $249) and $40 off MailDoor
(regularly $139). The special pricing is good through March 1, 1997.

Open Door Networks also announced that a future version of HomeDoor will
take advantage of new features of WebSTAR 2.0 to provide HomeDoor users
with additional flexibility in implementing multi-domain Web sites. The
current version of HomeDoor, which works with any Web server, provides
Macintosh Webmasters with the ability to host up to 256 independent home
pages and virtual domains on a single server. Open Door Networks announced
that it will ship, in the first quarter of 1997, a special plug-in version
of HomeDoor for WebSTAR 2.0 which includes new features such as the ability
to use a single IP address for all virtual domains and the elimination, in
many cases, of the difference between what a user types into their Web
browser and what is displayed in the brower’s “Location” field.

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
