[NPL] BeadleNet SOHO2000 and BIZ2000

For Immediate Release

BEADLENET INTRODUCES SOHO2000,
ALL-IN-ONE INTERNET-SHARING, FIREWALL & NETWORKING SOLUTION FOR THE SMALL
OFFICE/HOME OFFICE

Securely Share High-Speed Internet Access Via Cable, xDSL, Leased Line or ISDN.

LAGUNA HILLS, Calif.-, April 27, 1999 BeadleNet L.L.C., a premier
provider of secure Internet and networking solutions for the Small
Office/Home Office (SOHO) and Small/Medium Business (SMB) markets,
announces the SOHO2000 Series of affordable router/firewalls. The BeadleNet
SOHO2000 offers a complete, all-in-one solution for users wanting to
connect multiple computers together and to the Internet with total
security. The product features an integrated 4-port hub for users
networking needs; firewall technology, which provides security from
Internet hackers; and router functions for sharing Internet access.

With support for high-speed Internet access through Digital Subscriber
Lines (DSL)/cable modems, and leased line/ISDN modem/routers, the SOHO2000
enables all computers on the network to simultaneously access the Internet
at speeds up to 100 times faster than analog modems. Internet technology
is better utilized over faster connections, said Chuck Gamer, BeadleNet
president. Businesses and households can cut costs on such things as
travel and long distance phone calls by using video conferencing and
Internet telephony or streaming video and audio, while the faster
download/upload times help increase productivity since online wait times
are greatly reduced with the increased speed.

In a recent report published by the Yankee Group, a leading industry
research firm, the number of U.S. households subscribing to high-speed
Internet access will grow from fewer than one-half million today to 7
million by 2002; and as many as 1.44 million business customers will
subscribe to xDSL services by 2002. In parallel, research from Kinetic
Strategies Inc. predicts the number of cable modem subscribers to be
approximately 3.2 million by 2002.

This product will change the way home and small/medium businesses use the
Internet," said Gamer. No longer will cost discourage small-to-medium size
networks from utilizing the benefits of shared, secure, high-speed access.

High-speed Internet access provides users with a continuous 24-hour
connection. Though convenient and faster, this always on connection can
leave unsecured computers open to Internet hackers. The SOHO2000 utilizes
Stateful Packet Inspection technology, which filters all messages traveling
between the Internet and computers on the network. Incoming packets only
pass through to the private network if their state corresponds to a users
request. This prevents unexpected packets from ever reaching the private
side of the firewall.

Utilizing Internet Protocol (IP) routing for Internet sharing, the SOHO2000
supports Network Address Translation (NAT) and Dynamic Host Configuration
Protocol (DHCP) technologies. NAT allows a single IP address to be shared
by multiple computers, while DHCP enables IP addresses to be assigned to
computers on the network when needed, automatically configuring the
communication between them and the Internet Service Provider (ISP). Features

BeadleNets SOHO2000 offers four Ethernet RJ-45 ports for direct connection
of up to four computers to the unit. However, by using cross over cables,
each port can be uplinked to additional hubs or switches to support more
users on the network. The product supports Windows 95/98/NT/2000, Macintosh
and Unix-based systems, and web browsers Internet Explorer or Netscape
Navigator. The SOHO2000 is available in four versions with varying features
including:

Expanded User Licenses - SOHO20000 offers software support for up to 25
computers.

Configurable or Non-Configurable Firewall - Configurable firewall allows
for Web/FTP server hosting or remote access to individual computers on the
network.

Hacker Attack Denial of Service - SOHO2000 protects against Ping of
Death, LAND Attack and IP Spoofing.

Web Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) - Ensures added security for hosting a
Web/FTP server with its own assigned IP address.

Bandwidth Management - (Additional Option) Allows bandwidth to be adapted
to each computers needs.

Usage Accounting - (Additional Option) Allows usage tracking for
individuals or the whole network.

Hacker Attack Control Software - (Additional Option) A tracking
system which generates activity report logs.

Virtual Private Network (VPN) - (Additional Option) Provides a secure
private network between offices over the Internet.

With an easy, interactive, browser-based installation, the SOHO2000
automatically detects operating system and web browser for each computer,
then provides the user with a tailor-made installation guide. Utilizing
customer feedback, the SOHO2000 installation guides and help pages are
continuously updated on the BeadleSoft software support web site. Users are
automatically taken directly to any updated areas on the site during the
installation. The product also automatically detects any outdated software
housed internally and proposes free maintenance upgrades via the BeadleSoft
software user interface.

BeadleNet offers three versions of the SOHO2000 with various
BeadleSoft software user interface features available upon purchase or
