Can Acronis Files Connect (formerly ExtremeZ-IP) replace PC MacLan which has been discontinued by Computer Associates (CA) and Miramar?
With the discontinuation of PC MacLan, Acronis recognizes the need of customers for a supported, compatible AFP server solution on the Windows platform.
Acronis Files Connect 5.3 replaces all of the functions of PC Mac Lan for connecting from a Macintosh to a Windows computer for file sharing and printing including AppleTalk protocol.
As you review the options and alternatives for a solution to replace PC MacLan, you should consider Acronis Files Connect. The product is an ideal replacement, equivalent to PC MacLan since it effectively replaces nearly every feature of PC MacLan including file sharing over AFP, printing over TCP/IP and Appletalk, and includes the AppleTalk protocol for Windows Server 2008, Windows 2003 Server, Windows Vista and Windows XP. Acronis Files Connect offers many additional features and innovations added by Apple and Acronis as the Apple Filing Protocol has evolved from the original AppleShare to the modern AFP v3.2 functionality of Mac OS X Leopard.
