QuickPage Ported to MacOS X

12 August 2002 – Hanover, NH. Dartware LLC has ported the open-source
QuickPage package (also known as qpage) to run on MacOS X. QuickPage was
developed by Thomas Dwyer III, and has been ported to run on many Unix
systems. Complete information about qpage is available from its web site,

QuickPage offers two facilities that work together, and can run
concurrently on the same computer. These are:

* A Simple Network Paging Protocol (SNPP) server, that listens for SNPP
messages, and sends them through an analogue modem using the TAP protocol;

* A paging client that can send pages to a SNPP server.

Dartware made minor changes to the modem initialization code to allow the
package compile and run on OS X. In addition, Dartware created an
installation script to place the pre-compiled Darwin/OS X binaries in the
appropriate places, edit the configuration files, start the server, and
create a StartupItem.

Dartware makes this ported version available at no cost, under the same
license agreement as the original QuickPage package. The pre-compiled
version may be downloaded from our web site: http://www.dartware.com/qpage.
