MICROCOM BEGINS SHIPMENT OF LANDLORD(R) 2.0 DESKTOP MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE

 NEW YORK, June 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Microcom(R), Inc. (NASDAQ: MNPI), a remote PC connectivity company with headquarters in Norwood, Mass., announced today that it has begun shipping LANlord 2.0, the latest version of its integrated software system for centralized, realtime management of DOS and Windows(tm) client workstations on local area networks. LANlord 2.0 provides a variety of new features and enhancements, including:
 -- New support for Microsoft(R) LAN Manager, IBM(R) LAN Server and
 100 percent NetBIOS-compatible networks, in addition to Novell
 NetWare(R)
 -- New integrated remote control based on Microcom's Carbon Copy(tm)
 for Windows 2.0
 -- New support for multiple LANlord Servers for scalable large-
 scale, enterprise-wide management.
 LANlord is a client-server-based software system that enables companies to proactively manage remote PCs and LANs across multiple locations. It supports a wide range of management applications, which are integrated into a single product and can be accessed through LANlord's Windows graphical user interface.
 Any network Windows workstation can serve as the LANlord management console, and multiple management consoles can access the LANlord server simultaneously. LANlord's unique, easy-to-operate command structure allows users to define logical, as well as physical, management groups and request information or perform action on the group selected.


Other new features, applications and enhancements included in this latest version are:
 -- New alert-forwarding capabilities, via DDE, MAPI, VIM and
 electronic paging systems
 -- New software metering blocking options
 -- Support for new data export formats (Paradox(R), dBase(R))
 -- New standalone PC inventory program
 -- Integrated virus detection and repair capabilities
 -- Enhanced security features, including centralized assignment of
 user privacy rights
 -- Enhanced Windows traps, including reporting of General Protection
 Faults
 -- Remote viewing and editing of additional systems files (NET.CFG,
 PROTOCOL.INI)
 -- Enhanced monitoring of serial port configuration settings,
 including baud rate, number of stop bits, parity and number of
 bits per character
 -- Improved set-up and installation procedures


In addition, LANlord 2.0 will support:
 -- "Smart launch" and "quick launch" integration with Novell's NMS
 -- Use of an SNMP proxy agent for interoperability and
 communications with SNMP-capable management consoles, such as
 Hewlett-Packard's OpenView(tm)
 "One of LANlord's big advantages is the fact that its applications are integrated, not just pieced together," said Don Meyers, a systems analyst at Morgan Keegan, a brokerage firm in Memphis, and one of the product's beta users. "We like LANlord's ability to edit files remotely, which will be a major asset to our Help Desk technicians. The integration of Carbon Copy remote-control capabilities in 2.0 will also be a big help in troubleshooting and resolving user problems."
 "Users say desktop management tools are among the key ingredients of an effective network management system," said Navindra Jain, vice president and general manager of Novell's Network Management and Internetworking Products Division. "Microcom's LANlord, combined with Novell's NetWare Management System, lets network administrations manage desktop functions from within a unified, PC-based network management environment."
 A second beta user, Thomas Winbush, a technical support manager at Plaza Savings and Loan in Santa Ana, Calif., said, "Like many organizations, our network support staff is relatively small, while the number of network PCs and users is constantly expanding. In many cases, we can't rely on, or expect, users to tell us what's going on in their machines. In addition, since we're utilizing standard Windows applications across all our machines, we often need to verify remote configurations and modify user system files, as we add applications to the network. LANlord gives our technicians the ability to accomplish all of this remotely, in background, without disturbing users, or interrupting their work. While we're currently completing our evaluation of LANlord in two test sites, our goal ultimately is to use LANlord to manage every desktop attached to our wide area network."
 A 50-user license of LANlord Release 2.0 retails for $2,495. Additional licenses available include 100-user and 250-user versions. LANlord 2.0 is available through a national network of authorized distributors and resellers, and directly through Microcom (1-800-822-8224).
