Bedford, Massachusetts-based Shiva Corp is now shipping Shiva Dial-out for Windows95, incorporating its Shiva Dial-out Networking technology, and is claiming to be the first remote access vendor to provide full 32-bit dial-out capabilities for Windows95 users. Supporting Windows95 Remote Access and Shiva’s Windows95 Security Pack, for the authentication of dial-in connections from local network-based users, Dial-out Networking is said to enable local network users into another Point-to-Point Protocol-based remote network, including another local network, a remote intranet, or the Internet, while remaining attached to the original local network. It is designed to be used in conjunction with the company’s LanRover, LanRover Access Switch, and NetModem/E product lines and will ship as standard with these from later this quarter. It can also be downloaded from the company’s Web site at The company has also launched the Dial-in software development kit, which is designed to speed the process of developing remote access applications. The kit, which is based on the Microsoft-developed 32-bit Remote Access Services application programming interface, includes class libraries, Visual Basic Controls, Visual C++ classes, sample code, documentation, and technical support services. It is designed for the development of Windows 3.X, Windows for Workgroups, Windows95, and Windows NT-based applications. The kit is available from Shiva’s Web site for $1,000 per developer, with unlimited distribution rights for resulting applications.
