KODAK’s INTERACTIVE SYSTEMS INTEGRATES NOVELL AND UNIX NETWORKS WITH PORTED NETWARE

By CBR Staff Writer

After a year-long development effort, Eastman Kodak Co’s Interactive Systems Corp has introduced its Interactive Ported NetWare product, which integrates Intel iAPX-86-based systems running Interactive Unix with Novell NetWare networks. The product is the first to offer both client and server capabilities, according to the Santa Clara, California company, meaning that all NetWare clients have access to Unix servers and applications, and Unix users can access native NetWare servers, via the Ported Client NetWare product. As part of the deal, Interactive has licensed Portable NetWare from Novell, and plans to sell Ported NetWare through its distribution channels. Interactive Unix was chosen by Novell as the reference port for Portable NetWare, which was first announced back in March 1989. Interactive’s product runs on top of Interactive Unix and works in conjunction with TCP/IP and Network File System to bridge the NetWare and Unix networks transparently. Pricing starts at $5,000 for Ported NetWare, with Ported Client NetWare costing $300, available this autumn. Additionally, the company introduced SMB/ix, an application to provide compatibility with personal computer local area networks using the Server Message Block network protocol: it costs $900.
