FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Stalker Software Announces iMac Specials – PortShare Pro 5 User License and
20% off SCSIShare.
MILL VALLEY, CA – August 24th, 1998 – Stalker Software, Inc. has announced
a five user license for their PortShare Pro application geared especially
for the new iMac Users and a 20% discount off their SCSIShare program from
now until December 1st, 1998.
PortShare Pro allows serial devices such as modems, printers, label
writers, and plotters to be shared over an AppleTalk/EtherNet network.
PortShare Pro will allow applications like PPP or other dial out
applications to dial out from a shared modem. Passwords can be assigned and
modem pools can be created. PortShare Pro works in the background as a
server/client control panel.
Since the new iMac’s only have Universal Serial Bus ports, connecting any
serial device directly is not possible. PortShare Pro offers a solution. By
using Portshare Pro users will be able gain access simply by installing the
control panels on networked machines and creating the ports necessary to
print to the office printer or dial out using the modem, etc.
Popular in the education and SOHO markets, PortShare Pro has always had a
ten user license and an unlimited user license. The iMac has created a
demand for the new five user license. Stalker will market the five user
license as an electronic copy only. This will be available direct from
Stalker for $59.00 USD.
In addition to the new 5 user PortShare Pro license, Stalker if offering
20% off SCSIShare. SCSIShare allows a scanner to become “networkable”
freeing the need for a dedicated scan station. This allows the individual
in the office with the scanner to remain free from interruption from
someone needing to use his/her work station to scan. SCSIShare is $89.00
for a ten user license, but a 20% discount is available on any purchase
from now until December 1st, 1998.
SCSIShare works with most name brand scanners that supports the SCSI
interface. The product allows connections across multiple AppleTalk zones
at transfer rates up to 10MB/sec, depending on network media and traffic.
It runs in the background and provides password protection.
Demos of all Stalker’s products are available on their web site at
