NEW! EtherPeekTM for Macintosh Release to Debut at Macworld!

AG Group, Inc. will be showcasing EtherPeek for Macintosh 4.0 at Macworld
Expo in San Francisco (booth #4220). This new, completely rewritten
release, due to ship late Q3 of 1999, adds many new enhancements to an
already robust feature set.

EtherPeek is an award-winning Ethernet network traffic and protocol
analyzer that sets the industry standard for ease-of-use, making the
complex tasks of troubleshooting and debugging mixed-platform,
multi-protocol networks easy. Key features of the software include
real-time and post-capture packet filtering, Plug-ins for expert packet
analysis, powerful decoding with support for all major protocol suites
(including IP, AppleTalk, Netware IPX/SPX, NetBEUI, NetBIOS, DECnet, SMB,
OSI TARP and more), ProtoSpecs(TM) technology for fine delineation of
packet type, simple “Make Filter” command for address, protocol and offset
filtering creation/modification, real-time utilization statistics for node,
protocol, and filtered packet monitoring, Summary Statistics window for
baselining and monitoring key traffic statistics at different intervals,
HTML traffic statistics output, enhanced protocol definitions, and more.

EtherPeek for Macintosh v.4.0 Feature Enhancements

* New! History Statistics Window History Statistics displays a line graph
showing performance statistics for your network for a specified sample time

* New! Packet Size Distribution Statistics Graphs

* New! Monitor Mode Node, Protocol and Conversation Statistics are
collected and displayed continuously in real-time.

* New! Enhanced Node Statistics View traffic to and from logical and
hardware addresses. Node Statistics now show logical addresses associated
with hardware addresses or name aliases.

* New! Enhanced HTML Output for Statistics The new enhanced feature allows
the exporting of statistics to HTML even if statistics windows are closed.
View real-time node and protocol traffic statistics gathered by EtherPeek
with your Web browser. HTML templates provided with EtherPeek allow easy
report customization to remotely access relevant network data from
virtually any location.

* New! Support for Advanced Filters New advanced filters allow the use of
OR, AND, and NOT in filter creation and implementation.

* New! Filter creation based on port designation

* New! Filter creation based on strings located anywhere in the packet

* New! Name Table Options Support for Port names (e.g., IP and AppleTalk
ports; Name Identification (such as router, server, client, etc.); and Name
Table groups that can be loaded and unloaded, providing a more organized
and customizable Name Table.

* New! Multiple Capture Windows/Buffers/Filters Support for multiple buffer
packet capture in different windows simultaneously, allowing you to capture
a conversation in one buffer and another conversation in a separate buffer,
or AppleTalk traffic into one buffer and IP traffic into another.

* New! Name Resolution Options “Silent Resolver” will listen for packets
containing name resolution information and use that information to help
build the Name Table. “Active Resolver” will actively resolve any
resolvable IP of AppleTalk name.

* New! Hierarchical view of packet decode information

* New! Split Frame Format for packet decodes View a decoded packet in two
panes (header/data and raw) — highlighting an item in the decoded packet
selects the raw hex values in another pane.

* Fully Y2K compliant
