NETMANAGE POSTS ON THE INTERNET ITS 'WINDOWS SOCKET 1.1 API' TCP/IP STACK FOR GENERAL EVALUATION

 CUPERTINO, Calif., Jan. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- NetManage Inc. today posted its developer release of NEWT on the Internet. This TCP/IP communications stack is fully compliant with the Windows Sockets API Standard Version 1.1, previously called WinSock API.
 Users and developers can now download NetManage's Windows Socket TCP/IP stack and use any application developed to this new standard. Also prvided are two test applications that test the TCP and UDP client and server functionality. Use of the tools is subject to copyright and license limitation provided with the tools.
 Dan Geisler, vice president of NetMange said, "By delivering the release version of our protocol stack and Windows Socket API through immediate downloading from the Internet, we can accelerate the acceptance of the Windows Socket API. By posting it this week, developers will be able to perform testing before the official Windows Socket compatibility testing scheduled to take place in February."
 Windows Sockets API
 The new Windows Sockets API specification defines a standard interface between a Microsoft Windows application and a TCP/IP protocol stack. This specification was previously known by the code name WinSock API.
 The Windows Socket API is based on NetManage's original specifications that were submitted to the standard committee. The underlying technology, including message-driven asynchronous- communications, was first shipped by NetManage in September of 1990. NetManage provides a 100-percent Windows DLL (Dynamic Link Library) TCP/IP stack.
 Applications developed using NEWT-SDK Windows Sockets will be compatible with Windows Socket stacks from any other vendor. Starting today, developers need to buy only one development kit to write applications to Windows Sockets compliant stacks.
 The Windows Sockets API is in the file netmanage.zip which can be found in the directory/pub/winsock on netman-gate.netmanage.com. It can also be found in the file netmanage.zip in the director/pub/winsock on microdyne.com. Both file servers are on the Internet and can be accessed via anonymous FTP.
 In addition to the Windows Socket, NEWT-SDK facilitates development using the FTP, SMTP and SNMP DLLs.
 Upgrade Path Available
 Current users of NEWT TCP/IP software can upgrade to take full advantage of the powerful new features of NEWT by purchasing the NEWT Upgrade.
 NEWT and NEWT-SDK run on both Windows 3.0 and 3.1.
 Regular pricing of the NEWT-SDK is $500 at quantity 1. Price of NEWT is $60 at quantity of 100. Both products are now shipping.
 NetManage Inc. develops, markets and supports network communications tools for Windows environment.
