 FOUR MAJOR TERMINAL EMULATION VENDORS SELECT
 NETMANAGE'S CHAMELEON TCP/IP, VEHICLE TO INTEROPERABILITY
 CUPERTINO, Calif., Sept. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Four leading suppliers of terminal emulation products for Digital Equipment Corp.'s VT series of terminals have recently announced their support for NetManage's Chameleon TCP/IP stack. By making the transition to TCP/IP on Windows, these companies will now be able to offer their customers the ability to interoperate over a wide variety of hardware and operating systems platforms.
 The companies who have made the commitment to interoperability through Chameleon are: KEA Systems Ltd. of Burnaby, B.C.; Marketfield Software Development Corp. of Oyster Bay, N.Y.; Pericom Inc. of Laurenceville, N.J.; and Persoft Inc. of Madison, Wisc. TCP/IP -- the Key to Interoperability
 "The announcements by these leading terminal emulation companies illustrate that TCP/IP is truly the way for all companies to achieve Windows interoperability," stated Dan Geisler, director of marketing for NetManage. "Chameleon's superior performance provides the users of terminal emulators with the best TCP/IP solution for Windows." What the Vendors are Saying... ...KEA Systems Ltd.
 KEA Systems Ltd., producer of the KEAterm series of text and graphics terminal emulation products for MS-Windows, is one of the companies that supports Chameleon. Said Eric Alexandre, KEA's vice president of marketing and sales, "We are committed to having our products work with the major TCP/IP packages on the market. Chameleon is particularly important because it is a true Windows TCP/IP package. In addition, Chameleon's support for NT is great for the future!" ...Marketfield Software Development Corp.
 "For Marketfield, the decision to develop support for TCP/IP with our WinTerm product was quite simple -- our customers were clamoring for it!" said John Schwartzberg, president. "It quickly became obvious that the advantages of TCP/IP are key to our customers' communication needs. We find NetManage's Chameleon intelligent, fast and easy to work with. Chameleon is a natural companion for WinTerm."
 WinTerm is an advanced terminal emulator and application integrator that supports a variety of asynchronous terminal types over LANs and communication ports. WinTerm provides highly flexible and robust facilities for interapplication data exchange using the clipboard and the DDE protocol, and faithful reproduction of all VT terminal capabilities. ...Pericom Inc.
 Pericom Inc., a supplier of advanced graphics and alpha-numeric terminal emulation software for MS-DOS, MS-Windows, and the Xwindows environments was also approached by its customers to support Chameleon.
 "We had several inquiries into our company supporting Chameleon. After testing and evaluating the product, we could see why," said Barry Brown, president of Pericom Inc. "It took a very minimal amount of effort on our part to support this new and exciting product."
 Pericom produces TeemTalk VT320 Windows and TeemTalk VT340 windows terminal emulation software. Included in these packages are also Hewlett-Packard, Data-General, and Prime terminal emulations. ...Persoft Inc.
 "In choosing to support NetManage's Chameleon, we are providing SmarTerm users with what we consider to be the best implementation of TCP/IP available under Windows," said Richard Marino, Persoft's director of product development. "The combined strength of our products gives users precise terminal emulation and superior TCP/IP support under Windows. Working with NetManage helps us provide Windows connectivity for customers in both the Token Ring and Ethernet environments."
 Persoft's SmarTerm 420 for Windows combines the graphic features of Windows with precise emulation of DEC VT text terminals. It includes comprehensive multiprotocol support and advanced site management features, giving PC users complete access to UNIX and VAX hosts. Chameleon -- the Most Comprehensive TCP/IP Package Available
 NetManage's Chameleon is the most comprehensive TCP/IP application package available for Windows. And it is the only TCP/IP package on the market based 100 percent on a Windows Dynamic Link Library (DLL) and not a TSR, saving users precious DOS memory space.
 In addition to being the only 100 percent DLL TCP/IP for Windows products, Chameleon also provides an extensive set of TCP/IP applications, including Telnet terminal emulation (VT100, VT220), FTP and TFTP file transfer, NetMail; icon-based SMTP mail, domain name server, and extensive diagnostic tools. All applications provide a point-and-click user interface and enable users to cut and paste between windows. Chameleon runs on both Windows 3.0 and 3.1 and is the first TCP/IP applications package running on Microsoft's WindowsNT. Windows Sockets API Compliant
 As an added benefit for developers, Chameleon is written to the Windows Sockets API standard recently announced by Microsoft, Sun Microsystems, NetManage and more than 20 other hardware and software suppliers.
 NetManage Inc. develops, markets and supports network communications tools for the Windows environment. NetManage Inc., 20823 Stevens Creek Blvd., Cupertino, CA 95014, U.S.A. Phone: 408-973-7171. Fax: 408-257-6405.
