As Apple prepares to transition its free iTools services to the pay-to-play .Mac services, another company with an iTools product that actually preceded Apple’s offerings wants to know its iTools are alive and well — Santa Barbara, Calif.-based Tenon Intersystems.
Tenon has updated its iTools to 6.5.6, and has updated the latest version for Mac OS X Server v10.2, “Jaguar.” It’s also updated various components of iTools with new versions.
Tenon’s iTools provide Mac OS X Server users with a Web-based graphical user interface to help maintain Apache, DNS and FTP services. The software also provides package installers with MySQL 3.23.52 and PHP 4.2.3, along with other open source and commercial packages for scripting, log rolling, database work, Java Server Pages and Active Server Pages. That’s not all, either — a Web-based e-mail client called WEBmail 5.1 is included, and there’s lots more too.
Tenon’s iTools costs US$299. Tenon also makes available iTools bundled with the mail server and list server for Mac OS X, Post.Office, pre-installed on Apple’s rack-mountable Xserve server boxes. For more details, visit Tenon’s Web site.
