Danick Systems Inc, a privately funded systems integrator, has launched a modem sharing package, Pitchfork, which it hopes to carve a niche in the 7m strong small business market. Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts-based Danick reckons that only 1% of US small businesses use the Internet because of the proportionately high cost of access, both in hardware and in Internet service provider accounts. Its Pitchfork server is a bundle of a 33.6Kbps modem, an Intel i486-based personal computer, Ethernet card, and Linux-based server software developed by Danick, which shares access to the modem across Ethernet networks running Artisoft Inc’s Lantastic, Novell Inc’s Netware, or Windows 3.x, 95 or NT.
