"Cybernet's NetMAX is going to give Microsoft's Windows NT and Novell's NetWare some stiff competition in the single-server market. NetMAX provides the stability, power, and flexibility of Linux in a tool that can create a GUI-based environment for multiple users armed with browsers, all in remarkably little time."

"NetMAX is built on Red Hat Linux, providing more-experienced users with a familiar platform. The product comes in two forms: a less-expensive version that provides individual services like file services or router/ firewall services, and a complete package for $395 that includes all these services as well as most standard Linux-based services. All of these features are managed from a Web browser, allowing you to configure a server that doesn't have a keyboard or monitor."

"The list of services in the complete version is extensive. It provides router support, including firewall, network-address-translation support, and dial- in management. File services include NFS and FTP support, while Samba allows Windows 95, Windows 98, and Windows NT users to access the server as if it were another Windows system. NetMAX even provides native AppleShare support for Macintosh users."
