this software installs an AFP server on a windows machine that allows mac os 9 + os x clients to send + receive to/from
to share files at great speeds.

The share can be permanently mapped on a Mac, similar to how one mounts a usb drive, which provides an icon on your desktop to click to access the share directy in the Finder, rather then having to open an application of some sort.

Requirements


System requirements: (for the server computer)
·   Windows NT 3.51, 4.0, 2000, 20003, XP as Server or Workstation or Windows 95/98; Alpha or Pentium Processor / Pentium II or compatible with 60 MHz. or more; 32 MB RAM or more; at least 5 MB free drive space.
·   The Windows TCP/IP protocol must be installed and a TCP/IP address must have been assigned. Windows TCP/IP protocol can be installed using the "Network" applet in the Windows control panel. See Windows manual for more information.
·   The Windows AppleTalk protocol (SFM / Services for Macintosh) should be installed in order to use the AppleTalk protocol with MacServerIP.
·   A harddisk partition formatted with the NTFS file system is recommended. It is advantageous to share volumes residing on NTSF drives. For more information see: Converting a partition to NTSF and Add / Change Volume.

System requirements for the Macintosh client computers:
·   PowerPC or 68k with AppleShare client software installed.
·   AppleShare client software 3.7 or higher with TCP/IP should also be installed in order to use the faster file transfer over TCP/IP. The AppleShare client software can be downloaded for free from the Apple world wide web server: http://www.apple.com or ftp://ftp.apple.com or ftp://ftp.info.apple.com/Apple.Support.Area/Apple_SW_Updates/US/Macintosh/Networking-Communications/AppleShare_Client

General information about the usage of MacServerIP:
·   MacServerIP can co-exist with Windows NT's MacFile service. You can use both services at the same time. But you must name the shared AFP servers differently. You are able to evaluate the MacServerIP package without interfering with an existing and parallel running Windows NT MacFile server installation.
·   MacServerIP can re-use (copy) Macintosh the file creator information from files stored on a volume, which is or has been shared by the Windows NT's MacFile service.
·   MacServerIP uses the same scheme to store Macintosh file resource forks as Windows NT's MacFile service does. Forks created by MacFile can be used by MacServerIP and vice versa.

Key Features:



On 100Base-T and 1000Base-T networks, it's 300%-500% faster than a conventional file server, like Services For Macintosh (SFM) of Windows NT
Seamless and safe upgrade of existing Windows NT/2000 SFM installations within minutes (no need to restart server; customers can always switch back to SFM). Can even be used in parallel with SFM. No need to re-link any documents on client side or to re-install files

Macintosh clients can access volumes shared by MacServerIP, over-routed TCP/IP networks, like the Internet and dialup PPP connections

Important Features Not Offered by Other AFP/IP Servers:



The MacServerIP product represents a significant advance in AppleShare-type (AFP) file servers for the Windows NT/2000/XP/2003 platform, offering a number of features not found in other products, including support for AFP-over-IP:
Excellent support of CD-ROMs and removable media, supports CD-ROM changes (SFM does not)
Can share HFS CD-ROMs, media with e.g. MacOpener
Sharing of non-NTFS volumes
Remote administration
Optimized for Windows NT/2000 cluster servers; MacServerIP is currently the only AFP/IP server, which allows to use only the Virtual IP number of the cluster software; this feature is required for a cluster fail-over solution
Real support for multiple network cards; MacServerIP is currently the only AFP/IP server, which allows all users to connect to it by using the Macintosh Chooser, regardless how many NICs are installed in the server
Efficient use of memory, so many clients can make simultaneous file transfers with a consistent speed
Can share volumes with millions of files

Performance:



The aggregate throughputs of five G3 Macintosh clients with 100Base-T network cards to a Dual Xeon Server with a RAID system can reach 50 MB/sec. (Server is connected over 1000Base-T to the Hub; measured with Helios LanTest 2.0.1)

Demo Versions:



A fully functional trial version for Intel can be downloaded at download_MacServerIP.htm

Review:



Computer Reseller News review: "... Multiple files and folders were transferred consistently at rates two to three times faster than that of the standard NT Macintosh services. ...MacServerIP product performed as advertised -- and can be a great improvement for multiplatform enterprises. The CRN Test Center at PC Expo recommends MacServerIP."

AFP-over-IP Heads List of Major Features



MacServerIP offers a more complete range of important features than any other AFP server product for Windows NT/2000/XP/2003/Win 2008/Windows 7/Vista x32/x64. MacServerIP is currently the only AFP server product to support access via the Internet Protocol (IP), using the specifications developed by Apple Computer for its AppleShare IP products. MacServerIP allows Macintosh computers to access the server and transfer files using IP instead of the AppleTalk Datagram Delivery Protocol (DDP), offering significantly better performance than DDP and making it possible for users to access the server from anywhere in the world via the Internet, using the standard AppleShare client software provided in MacOS 8.1 and higher or System 7.6 and higher with AppleShare Client Software installed (AppleShare Client 3.7 or higher required for AFP-over-IP access).
In addition to the performance benefits of AFP-over-IP, MacServerIP offers greater flexibility in sharing volumes than Windows NT/2000 Server's Services for Macintosh. While Services for Macintosh requires Windows NT/2000 Server and can only share volumes that are formatted with Windows' NTFS, MacServerIP can run on either Windows NT/2000/XP/2003/Win 2008/Windows 7/Vista x32/x64 Server or Workstation/Professional, and can make non-NTFS volumes available to Macintosh clients. MacServerIP is also able to share CD-ROM drives and other removable media.
While offering better performance and more flexibility than Windows NT/2000's Services for Macintosh, MacServerIP is tightly integrated with Windows' security environment, allowing administrators to establish and maintain a single database of users, groups, and access privileges, unlike other third-party products, which require maintenance of a separate database of AFP users.

Better Preservation of Macintosh-Specific Information



A significant difference between MacServerIP and other third-party AFP servers for NT/2000/XP is the use of the same file format for Macintosh files as NT/2000's MacFile Service. This approach is provided for storing the resource fork of Macintosh files in a second invisible file stream within the main file object, along with Finder information such as type and creator codes, comments, and other Finder information. This ensures that when non-Macintosh users move, copy, or rename Macintosh files, none of this important information is lost, even if MacServerIP is not running at the time. Other third-party AFP servers for NT/2000/XP use a discrete second file for the resource fork and Finder information, with a database of links between the data fork file and the resource fork file. Because the NT/2000/XP operating system is not aware of the connection between these files, if a user other than a logged-in AFP client copies, moves, or renames the main file, the link to the resource fork information is broken.
Use of the same file format as NT/2000's MacFile Service also provides easy migration from NT/2000's Services for Macintosh to MacServerIP; existing MacFile server volumes can be shared immediately by MacServerIP, with no reconfiguration necessary. In fact, MacServerIP can run simultaneously with NT/2000's MacFile Service.

Remote Administration



MacServerIP is also designed to make network administrators' lives easier by providing a remote administration program that allows users to control and configure servers from another Windows NT/2000/XP/2003/Win 2008/Windows 7/Vista x32/x64 machine on the network, or even from a remote site via Windows NT/2000/2003/XP's/Win 2008/Windows 7/Vista x32/x64 Remote Access Services (RAS). This makes it possible to configure multiple servers from a single point.

Product versions



MacServerIP will be available in a range of versions to meet the needs of different types of users and sites:
inexpensive MacServerIP Workstation Edition. Up to 10 simultaneous client connections
MacServerIP Server Edition. Up to 10 simultaneous client connections
MacServerIP Server Edition. Up to 20 simultaneous client connections

Versions for Intel processor types and NT/2000/2003/XP Workstation/Professional, Standard/ Web Edition and Server available

System Requirements



MacServerIP requires a Pentium processor (or compatible), 32MB or more of RAM and Windows NT/2000/XP/Win 2008/Windows 7/Vista x32/x64 Server or Windows NT/2000/XP Workstation/Professional/Win 2008/Windows 7/Vista x32/x64 (versions 3.51, 4.0, 2000 or XP) or Windows 2003 Server (all editions). Windows' TCP/IP Protocol is required for AFP-over-IP. Windows' RAS (Remote Access Services) is required for remote administration.
