Westborough, Massachusetts-based Banyan Systems Inc has enhanced three Internet access systems for its StreetTalk directory, and launched two software distribution products. Banyan’s TCP/IP Application Suite 3.0, licensed from San Jose-based Ipswitch Inc, has several new features, including CyberSuite, a new ‘single icon’ graphical user interface and WS_FTP Professional, a File Transfer Protocol client for Windows for transferring files on the Internet. A new 5250 emulator for AS/400 communications will also be included, as well as Whats’p, a diagnostic utility to help simplify the management of TCP/IP networks. RLN for StreetTalk, licensed from Attachmate Corp, provides access to enterprise networks and the Internet. In Version 2.0, StreetTalk replaces the RLN directory structure, facilitating single log-in and simplifying remote user management. CaLANdar Web View, licensed from Microsystems Software Inc, enables desktops with an HTML 3.0 browser to have access to enterprise-wide group scheduling from anywhere, using the Internet. Users can view schedules, respond to meeting requests and search guest lists. The TCP/IP Applications Suite 3.0 will be available in September, with a 50-user pack costing $5,000. RLN for StreetT alk, Version 2.0 will be available in September, with an eight-user pack costing $3,200. CaLANdar Web View is immediately available, for $600 for a single user.

Centralized distribution

Meanwhile the company has announced NetWizard and StreetLegal, designed to control the expenses of software distribution and administration. Both technologies are integrated with StreetTalk. NetWizard, licensed from Attachmate, provides centralized and automated software distribution, automatic asset management hardware and software inventory, software usage metering and remote workstation configuration and maintenance. The StreetLegal software metering package, integrated with StreetTalk, is designed to network administrators to monitor and control software license use and to track this usage through their Street-Talk directory. The Monitoring process produces reports that detail software usage on a per user basis, while the Control process adds the ability to manage a bank of software licenses. NetWizard, available now, costs $690 for a 10-user version. StreetLegal for StreetTalk is free for monitoring Banyan software, but customers that would like to use the thing with licenses from other software vendors pay a per-user license fee to Banyan, starting at $150 for 10 users.
