Concurrent Computer Corp Ltd can now offer full support for MS-DOS micros in its distributed Series 3200 networks with two new products, PENnet PC and Reliance Office. Reliance Office enables third party and user-developed programs to integrate with the Reliance Plus relational database. The Lex word processor from Ace Microsystems is available as an option as is the NEM/32 electronic mail system and C-Telex. Concurrent users can now access local and remote Series 3200 systems and networks from MS-DOS micros, initially across an Ethernet, with PENnet PC networking software. This is one step on from PENnet Plus which provides access to mainframes via IBM gateways and conforms to the Open Systems Interconnect standard. Concurrent says it also has a Unix System V version of PENnet for use with its superminis; a version for use with machines running the OS32 proprietary real-time operating system and one for those connected via X25. The new networking software was developed at the minimaker’s UK base in Slough, Berkshire, has has already been installed at various beta testing sites, including Allied Irish Finance which uses it to connect Series 3200 machines, Personal Computers and an IBM mainframe over SNA. A site licence costs just under UKP3,000 enabling any number of MS-DOS micros to be connected.
