iTools for Linux

A suite of tools to dramatically simplify Apache configuration & maintenance

Santa Barbara, CA, June 6, 2000. Tenon Intersystems is introducing a suite
of internet tools for Linux. Building upon their award-winning Macintosh
networking software, Tenon is extending its networking expertise to Linux –
making Linux as easy to use for web service as a Macintosh. Tenon’s iTools
extends and enhances Linux ‘s networking performance, efficiency,
ease-of-use, and functionality with a family of tools essential to serious,
commercial content delivery and eCommerce.

iTools complements and extends the open source software that is included
with Linux, and makes it very easy for webmasters to set up and support
sophisticated network servers.

iTools is based on open source implementations of Apache, DNS, FTP, and
sendmail, created and maintained by software developers worldwide. Using
the Linux open source internet software as a point-of-departure, Tenon’s
iTools extends the underlying architecture with a point & click interface
and a rich set of new features. In addition to extensions and enhancements
to Apache, DNS and FTP, iTools includes a fully customizable, anywhere,
anytime WEBmail server, a robust two-tiered-certificate-savvy SSL
encryption engine to support eCommerce, a powerful caching engine with
state-of-the-art proxy support, a sophisticated search engine, and both
FastCGI and mod_perl support to provide high-performance Perl and CGI
execution. All of the tools are supported using a point & click,
browser-based administration tool, enabling system administrators and
webmasters to manage their web servers remotely using any internet browser.
iTools provides the power and flexibility of an advanced graphical user
interface, while still leaving the native configuration files accessible.

Tenon’s new iTools runs on Linux PPC 1999/2000, Terra Soft’s Yellow Dog
Linux Champion Server 1.1/1.2, and RedHat Linux 6.1 for Intel. A
preliminary version of iTools is included on Terra Soft’s YDL Champion
Server “Tasty Morsels” CD. iTools for Linux is available now at an
introductory price of $199. It is downloadable with a built-in 14-day
license, which can be easily extended by contacting Tenon
