SYMANTEC ANNOUNCES THE NORTON pcANYWHERE VERSION 4.5 CUPERTINO, Calif., Jan. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Symantec corp.
(NASDAQ: SYMC) today announced The Norton pcANYWHERE version 4.5 and The Norton pcANYWHERE/LAN version 4.5 with remote control for both Windows 3.0 and DOS. Norton pcANYWHERE offers fast, flexible PC-to-PC remote computing via serial or modem connections. Norton pcANYWHERE/LAN provides PC-to-PC remote computing across a network and to and from a network via serial or modem connections. Both products have been enhanced to control a host PC running Windows 3.0 in real, standard or 386 enhanced mode and include full mouse support for both DOS and Windows applications.
"The Norton pcANYWHERE version 4.5 brings superior technology to remote computing," said Gordon E. Eubanks Jr., chairman, president and CEO. "Greater reliability, faster speed and optimization of Windows 3.0 remote control make version 4.5 the leading remote computing software available." KEY FEATURES Support for Windows 3.0 Norton pcANYWHERE has been enhanced to provide remote control of Windows 3.0. Due to proprietary technology, Norton pcANYWERE optimizes and simplifies the remote operation of Windows 3.0. Version 4.5 enables users to control a host PC running Windows 3.0 in real, standard or 386 enhanced mode and includes full mouse support for both DOS and Windows applications. Reliability Reliability is especially important when the host PC is not directly visible nor easily accessible to the remote user. Because the quality of the phone line is critical, Norton pcANYWHERE is designed to recover from phone line errors and to sustain the integrity of connections even under noisy line conditions. Ease of Use A new Quick Connect feature has been added to Norton pcANYWHERE. Quick Connect simplifies the connection process by reducing the parameters necessary to set when connecting to the host PC. The number of steps have been reduced from 15 to as low as 2 using user defined parameters. Communications Flexibility Norton pcANYWHERE includes a complete set of general communications functions. Popular terminal emulations such as ANSI, DEC, IBM and Data General, as well as file transfer protocols such as ASCII, XMODEM, YMODEM and Kermit, provide users with greater flexibility. These communications functions make it easier to connect to public mail, bulletin board services and when accessing minis and mainframes. Leading Technology The new, completely comprehensive script language enables users to automate general communications and avoid the need for user intervention. High-speed file transfers can be implemented in the foreground or background. Remote users can transfer files without interfering with on-going host computer processing. In addition, over 90 drivers for specific modems now exist, taking complete advantage of specific modem capabilities. Norton pcANYWHERE/LAN also provides a gateway for non-dedicated communications servers. The LAN version is compatible with any asynchronous communications server that follows the NASI/NCSI interface such as Novell's NACS and Network Products ACS2. Speed Norton pcANYWHERE runs at speeds of up to 115,200 bits per second, making it the perfect match for high-speed modems and super-fast ISDN digital phone networks. Pricing and Availability Norton pcANYWHERE version 4.5 is offered as an integrated product of the Host PC and Remote PC software or as two separate stand-alone products. Purchased as one integrated product, Norton pcANYWHERE includes host and remote communication software necessary to establish remote computing capabilities. Purchased separately, Norton pcANYWHERE Host PC and Norton pcANYWHERE Remote PC allow additional systems to be added to the remote computing environment. Both pcANYWHERE products are available now through Symantec's network of distributors and resellers. The suggested retail price for Norton pcANYWHERE is $179.
