Chameleon UNIXLink 97

Here are the four hottest additions: We added so many compelling new features to Chameleon NFS/X that we had to change its name. Its successor, Chameleon UNIXLink 97, is more powerful, more economical, easier to use, easier to administer and support. In fact, it's the most advanced, most cost-effective solution going.

Gain easy web-browser access to UNIX applications

Chameleon UNIXLink 97 is first to give you the latest X server technology: "Broadway" or web-enabled X. Broadway lets you access and run UNIX applications from within the friendly confines of your favorite web browser. For the first time, PC users can access X and UNIX applications without learning X and UNIX connection commands. Simply access a web page, click on a link, and you're connected. That's a feature guaranteed to flatten the X and UNIX learning curve - along with your support and training costs.

Get leaner, faster X

This release also helps you conserve your bandwidth and speed the flow of X data. It provides Low Bandwidth X (LBX), the new X standard for use in low bandwidth environments. It compresses your X-application data, giving you more X performance out of your existing network connection.

Why wait?

Web-enabled X. The fastest NFS on Earth. X data compression. Network installation and administration. The future of PC-to-UNIX connectivity just arrived.

The Web and X. Together at last.

PC X Server

Announcing the first union of Windows, Web, and UNIX. Chameleon UNIXLink 97 delivers an optimized, web-enabled PC X server for all Windows platforms. It gives Windows 3.x, Windows 95, and Windows NT users unparalleled flexibility and performance on their PC-to-UNIX desktops. Plus the ability to do some things they've never been able to do before.

Web-enabled X reduces need for support and training

Using the latest release of X Windows (X11R6.3 or "Broadway"), Chameleon UNIXLink 97's PC X Server (XoftWare) provides seamless integration with your favorite web browser. Users need only start their browsers, click an HTML link to an X application, and then watch their X clients appear. Everything's automated so there's no need for users to learn X and UNIX connection commands. Which means there's no need for IS to teach them. If you can use a browser, you can use our X!

Conserve bandwidth and speed data flow with Low-Bandwidth-X

To open the bandwidth bottlenecks sometimes caused by X applications, Chameleon UNIXLink 97 delivers Low-Bandwidth-X (LBX) technology. LBX provides three layers of data compression and caching. This feature speeds the flow of X data over low-bandwidth lines. It also reduces the overall network bandwidth consumption of the X protocol. So productivity goes up; frustration goes down. LBX can even be used in conjunction with the Web Browser plug-in, enabling access to remote X applications anywhere on the Internet.

Install and administer the easy, economical way: over the network

Chameleon UNIXLink 97's PC X server (XoftWare) also supports full network deployment and administration. Create a connection to a UNIX application just once then publish it on a file server. It can be shared by all users or a group of your choice. Use your favorite web browser to remotely administer any PC on the network. Or use our unique Administration Control Panel to retrieve configuration information from any place on your network. Installation and administration have never been easier.

Get the best X on Earth

The first web-enabled X, enhanced performance, network deployment and administration, and X bandwidth control. It all adds up to the best X on Earth.
