Vicomsoft has announced the release of new versions of their Internet Gateway and SurfDoubler software products. The company indicates they’ve worked with Apple engineers to update both programs to work with Mac OS 9.1, which was released earlier this month during Macworld Expo in San Francisco.
Internet Gateway is designed to provide users in small offices, enterprises and education the ability to set up and share a secure Internet connection through a single computer. SurfDoubler provides some similar functionality, but is instead scaled specifically to home users.
Both software products have been updated to version 6.8.1. Vicomsoft assures users the new update is now 100 percent compatible with Mac OS 9.1. For users of versions prior to 6.8, new features have been incorporated as well: such as support for Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) using point to point tunnelling protocol (PPTP). This enables users of Internet Gateway and SurfDoubler to create a secure virtual private network across the Internet. Other features specific to 6.8 and above include the ability to run the RapidCache server with hard drive partitions larger than 30GB.
The new 6.8.1 versions of SurfDoubler and Internet Gateway are available as a free upgrade to users of 6.7 or 6.8 — more information and download links are available from
