If you have a need to host a shared Internet connection from your Mac and want to use Mac OS X to do it, Vicomsoft has released a new build for its public beta of Internet Gateway for Mac OS X. The software suite enables Mac users to host a shared Internet connection for a local area network (LAN) from a single Macintosh.

The new beta version sports the following improvements over the beta 2 release:

  • Improved Auto Setup: More information about the Auto Setup process is presented to the user. Auto Setup no longer informs the user of a DHCP configuration when in fact none was made.
  • CyberUpdater: The application now allows the demo CyberNOT Internet filter to be downloaded and installed.
  • Local Administrator: A crashing issue has been resolved which was particularly apparent when the CyberNOT filter was downloaded.
  • RapidCache: Web Pages folder can now be deleted.
  • Installer: A complete install will now occur, even when the installed OS does not contain a full BSD installation.
  • Gateway: Now correctly activates at system startup time, if selected. If there is a failure starting the server a notification will be displayed. Various minor fixes.
  • Vicomsoft's Internet Gateway is also available in release form for older versions of Mac OS. The company noted that the Mac OS X release of Internet Gateway "incorporates all of the features of [the] current Internet Gateway, while taking full advantage of the high performance and improved user interface available to native applications under Mac OS X."
