"Perle Systems, a leading provider of networking products for IP and e-business access, has announced the addition of a Linux dial-out modem pooling client for its line of 833 Access Servers. The new client allows Linux-based users to share modems with other Linux, Windows 95/98, NT and 2000 workstations on their network."

"With this software, Perle 833 Access Servers eliminate the need to attach individual modems on each Linux workstation in the office where dial-out facilities are needed. This reduces the number of PBX ports used for modem dial-out, saving PBX upgrade costs as office staffing increases."

"Perle's 833 Access Servers are a cost-effective solution for companies that need dial-in remote access, as well as shared modem access for dial-out applications such as Internet access or fax-dial-out, on LAN-based Linux workstations," said Sean O'Donovan, vice-president of Worldwide Marketing at Perle Systems Inc."
