It turns out that the basis of IBM Corp’s forthcoming AIX Connections extension to its AIX Unix is TotalNET from Federal Way, Washington-based Syntax Inc. AIX Connections is designed to enable computers running AIX to act as servers on either Token Ring or Ethernets, providing file and print services for connecting many types of client workstation, such as OS/2, AIX Version 4.1, Windows for Workgroups, Windows95, Windows NT client, Mac OS and NetWare clients (CI No 2,770). According to Syntax, AIX Connections brings together IBM’s LAN Server operating system for OS/2 and AIX; AIX; and Syntax’s TotalNET Advanced Server network operating software for Unix. Syntax claims similar deals with SunSoft Inc, Tandem Computers Inc, Fujitsu Ltd, Sony Corp, Encore Computer Corp and Axil Workstations Inc.
