Bringing Windows and UNIX Systems Together

FacetCorp’s Windows to UNIX integration software, FacetWIN Version 3, includes a new Internet modem server and PC backup utility. Both features can be configured through the PC Agent, a new graphical interface for the user. The Internet modem server allows PC users to share a bank of UNIX modems in order to access the World Wide Web, and to use with other Windows 95/98 applications. This offers increased productivity by providing immediate access from the PC, as well as reduced hardware and telephony costs by not requiring the purchase, installation and maintenance of a separate modem and phone line for each PC.

The PC Backup/Restore feature provides the UNIX system administrator and individual PC users with the capability of backing up PC files to a UNIX system disk or tape. It includes such functionality as full or incremental backup, data compression, backup of multiple PCs (in one operation) to multiple tapes and multiple tape drives, large file support (over 2GB) and automated/scheduled operation. The user can select PC files for backup through an easy-to-use, Explorer-type interface.

Also, the PC Agent component allows users to manage their modem access configuration and PC backup settings. It allows coherent messages to be sent to the user from the FacetWin file/print servers, as well as providing a means for the system administrator to send direct messages to the user.
