Network systems stalwart WRQ Inc has announced an NT version of its Win95 Reflection NFS software to hook Windows-based desktops to Unix networks. The Reflection NFS Connection for NT 6.1 comes with an NFS administrator to configure and manage NFS connections, an adaptive NFS optimization scheme to automatically adjust to fluctuations in the networks, a Ping routine for determining if Unix hosts are active and an event logger. The Seattle-based company concedes that it is not always first off the blocks in bringing leading-edge technology to the market but says that it is more concerned with delivering a product that will last the long haul. The NT version will hit market in May at a 60-day introductory price of $200. It goes for $220 after that, and will be added to the company’s $400 Reflection Suite for TCP bundle in due course. The company has also released its latest Reflection for IBM software, which includes added options for integrating SNA with TCP/IP environments. WRQ claim Reflection for IBM is the only host access product that supports Novell Directory Services. Reflection NFS Connection for NT 6.1 features new Window 95 and Windows NT SNA connections. It supports the new releases of Novell Inc’s NetWare for SAA and Microsoft Corp’s SNA Server. Version 6.1 will ship at the end of March. Single copy prices go for $300. WRQ’s 1996 revenues of $130.2m were up from $111.6m the previous year. The privately held company now employs some 660 people worldwide, and its customers include the likes of Federal Express Corp, Northern Trust Co, and Healthsource Inc.
