Group Logic integrates with both Mac OS X
and OS 9, and Windows 2003/2000 Server
versions"?as well as Windows 2003 Storage

Version 4.0's new features include
advanced caching, plus clustering capabilities
that allow users to distribute multiple
virtual Mac file servers across multiple
nodes, with immediate failover"?providing,
says Group Logic, improved uptime and
functionality. Also incorporated into the
new version is support of Kerberos, the network-
authentication protocol adopted as a
standard part of Windows 2000/2003 and
adopted by Apple in Mac OS X. The
ExtremeZ-IP 4.0 upgrade is a paid upgrade.

The company also has released an
upgraded, standalone version of its
ExtremeZ-IP Print Server, which customers
can use both in conjunction with and independently
of the company's ExtremeZ-IP

Server allows Mac and Windows clients to
print via TCP/IP to printers and other Post-
Script devices. The 4.0 standalone Print
Server product provides support for Apple
Remote Desktop, multiple print-queue
management, detailed logging of print
jobs, support for Rendezvous, and more. (Group Logic: www.grouplogic.com)
