IP ALPHA TESTING UPDATE

NIAKWA OFFICES CLOSED MONDAY, MAY 28, 2001

In observance of Memorial Day, a U.S. Holiday, Niakwa's offices will be closed Monday, May 28th. Our standard shipping schedule will resume on Tuesday, May 29th.  We would like to wish those of you in the United States a safe and healthy Memorial Day Holiday!


IP ALPHA TESTING UPDATE

Yes - our pending IP release is now in active Alpha Test. And it's looking good. The new NPL Release 5.1 is a significant update!  First and foremost, Release 5.1 introduces a new security mechanism for Windows NT / 2000 Servers. This new security mechanism, Protocol Independence, will throw off the chains of dependence on NetBIOS. More specifically, it will operate as an NT service, and will not rely on a particular protocol (except IP at the time of installation.)

Of course, major security changes of this type require major testing to insure near perfect performance. Couple that with the fact that the number of possible NT/2000 server and Windows workstation combinations total over 100, and that tells you why we're lagging behind in releasing this product for a full Beta. Not that we will be able to test every possible configuration, but we will test a good representation of them.

Stay posted for a formal Beta announcement soon.
