The company isn’t taking Web orders during the promo period. Web sales will begin when the final product becomes available. To pre-order, you’ll need to call 1-866-428-3282. System requirements are Mac OS X 10.1 or later, 128MB of available RAM, 7MB of free hard disk space. NetWare Client For Mac OS X-IP Edition is compatible with NetWare versions 5 and 6. NetWare provides universal services to secure and power all types of networks — wired to wireless, corporate and public, the Internet, Intranets and extranets — across all leading operating systems.
Built completely from the ground up, this Mac OS X native product allows your Mac to communicate on your Network in Pure IP with “unprecedented efficiency,” according to the folks at Prosoft. The NetWare Client For Mac OS X-IP Edition lets you authenticate and use NetWare natively using the IP protocol. It eliminates the need to propagate AppleTalk on your local area network. Client machines will only need one protocol to access the Internet, and local network services.
Features include native NCP file handling; NDS browsing for finding and authenticating NetWare servers; and support for NSS volumes provides for file sizes of up to 8TB.
