Jan 10, 2001, 15:20 (0 Talkback[s])

"Corridor Software, a provider of innovative Linux-based software for small businesses, today announced it will release its Connection Server software on February 28, 2001. The first beta versions are undergoing internal testing and will begin shipping to qualified testers and resellers around the country in the next two weeks."

"The Corridor Connection Server is the first of several components which will comprise the Corridor Small Business Server. The Connection Server provides features which allow small businesses to secure their sensitive data and network transmissions, to connect their local area network (LAN) to the Internet, and to allow secure remote access into their corporate LAN via a secure and intuitive Virtual Private Network (VPN) component. Using a flexible and powerful Java-based interface, users can manage their server, connection, and firewall settings in the familiar graphical Windows setting."

"Corridor is built on the Linux platform in order to harness the power and stability afforded by the open source software, currently the second largest server operating system in deployment. In addition, Linux boasts superior performance and lower cost of ownership than either Windows NT (Nasdaq:MSFT) or Sun Solaris (Nasdaq:SUNW). Corridor currently supports the Redhat (Nasdaq:RHAT) distribution of Linux, with plans to support other distributions in the future."
