'Team Internet' to provide access to 60 users simultaneously
By Maria Seminerio

  Apexx Technology Inc. next month plans to ship its Team Internet LAN access product for simultaneously connecting up to 60 users to the Internet for World Wide Web browsing, E-mail and other online services.

Team Internet, an integrated hardware and software suite, connects to LANs via an analog or ISDN phone line plugged into to the product's built-in Ethernet port, enabling its browser-based administration utility to run from any computer on the LAN, Apexx officials said.

The product, which provides users with simultaneous Internet access over a single dial-up or dedicated connection to an Internet service provider, is optimized for LAN environments including NetWare, Windows NT, Windows 95, Windows for Workgroups, the Macintosh OS and Unix, company officials said.

Team Internet uses Apexx's Network Address Translation Internet gateway technology to enable multiple connections over a single, dynamically changing IP address and to provide firewall protection by hiding internal IP addresses. It also performs user authentication and packet inspection and filtering functions, eliminating the need to deploy a separate firewall, company officials said.

The product also includes an SMTP- and Post Office Protocol 3-compliant Internet mail server featuring mail alias and mail forwarding features.

Pricing is $1,495 for a base Ethernet version and $1,995 for an ISDN version. The products include 90 days of free technical support and are covered by a year-long warranty.

Apexx, based in Boise, Id., can be reached at www.apexxtech.com/.
