    VPN Tracker 365 Gains More Control and Higher Security: Remote Connection Wipe
    Read more...

    VPN Tracker, the market leading VPN client for Macs, offers more security for remote network data connections when working on the go: Now it's possible to remotely delete VPN connections (Remote Connection Wipe) with VPN Tracker 365. Administrators gain total control over who may or may not use VPN connections.

    Remote Connection Wipe
    If an employee leaves the company, or a MacBook goes missing, administrators can prevent unauthorized VPN access by remotely deleting connections from these Macs. This prevents access to corporate VPN connections. VPN Tracker ensures highest security standards by also cleaning up every technical information about your VPN infrastructure.

    More control for more security
    Administrators can manage their users under my.vpntracker.com and define groups with access to specific VPN connections. This makes it easy to give a contractor or consultant temporary access to certain VPN connections. VPN Tracker 365 Remote Connection Wipe is similar to the remote wipe feature offered by Mobile Device Management solutions (MDM) for mobile devices, such as TARMAC (www.tower-one.net).

    VPN Tracker 365 - VPN Security for Macs Made in Germany
    VPN Tracker 365 is the #1 VPN solution and de facto standard for Mac OS X since more than 15 years. VPN Tracker is 100% Made in Germany with professional support. It runs independent from manufacturers providing highest security (military grade) for business critical data connections.
    VPN Tracker 365 is optimized for OS X El Capitan and includes all VPN Tracker versions from Mac OS X 10.6.

    World premiere: tizi Turbloader 5x MEGA is here! The most powerful USB charger for your car
    equinux presents the tizi Turbloader 5x MEGA, currently the most powerful USB charger for your car’s 12V cigarette lighter socket. Charge up to 5 iPads simultaneously!
    Read more...
    In most cars, smartphones still charge as slowly as they did ten years ago. With the tizi Turbolader 5x MEGA (www.tizi.tv/turbolader), equinux demonstrates how much power it’s possible to extract from a regular cigarette lighter socket. The high performance Turbolader achieves a whopping 60 watts! Each individual USB port delivers up to 2.4A of power, a total of maximum 12V. This Meister of car chargers from the Turbolader family, charges smartphones and tablets 3x faster than the leading USB ports found in most newer cars today.

    Testing the limits of performance and power: “We wanted to know”.

    The power provided by the tizi Turbolader is enough to charge up to 5 iPads simultaneously, just as fast as if they were plugged into the wall socket at home. “Why a car USB charger for 5 devices? Simple. We wanted to know if it would work”,  explains the equinux CEO Till Schadde. “The tizi Turbolader 5x MEGA is a feasibility study. Our Development Team wanted to take it to the technical limit. This Turbolader is a clear mark of a higher end product as part of the tizi Turbolader family”.

    For every car, without hesitation
    equinux boasts the best of German Engineering with the  tizi Turbolader 5x MEGA. Thanks to Auto Max Power™ technology, connected USB devices are automatically recognized, and the optimal power is delivered dynamically throughout the entire charging cycle.
    Safety still applies! The solid aluminum head, in Monza red, offers sufficient cooling to avoid over-heating. Along with the impressive levels of performance, the tizi Turbolader 5x MEGA is designed to avoid over-charging, keeping your devices happily charged at 100% for as long as they are connected.

    Price and availability
    The tizi Turbolader 5x MEGA is now available at the introductory price of 49.99 EUR ($49.00) online at www.tizi.tv/turbolader and on Amazon. Other products from the tizi Turbolader family are available starting at 19.99 Euros ($19.99).

    How complicated encryption is ruining your business
    Read more...
    Do your team members encrypt critical business files before sharing them collaboratively? Anyone who works in a remote office knows how difficult it can be to share secure data. Most encryption tools lack user acceptance in daily workflow or have technical limitations. Mac users working in a VPN environment now have a more acceptable and convenient way to share data with their team: SecureDrop is a new and easy way that uses your existing security infrastructure to enable zero-config file sharing. This feature is now included in VPN Tracker 365 (www.vpntracker.com), the market leading VPN client for OS X.

    Employee and system errors are the top risks for data security
    According to a current e-Security study, 53% of all data security risks were caused by user errors. A further 29% of the threats were ascribed to system errors. To many businesses, the tools and workflows are too complicated to guarantee secure file sharing: Encryption tools usually require a public and private key, which first has to be generated and distributed within the team. Critical business data is put at risk when users have to jump through hoops in order to protect it. Convenient and secure tools are in demand in order to minimize security risks.

    Automatic encryption (Military Grade) with VPN credentials and algorithms
    With SecureDrop, VPN Tracker 365 offers Mac users the following: Data is easily encrypted via drag-and-drop and can be securely distributed to team members. To encrypt the data, VPN Tracker uses the existing VPN connection and creates a shareable link. Team members using the same VPN connection simply click on the provided link to access the data. The authorization automatically follows via VPN Tracker. The encryption algorithms from the shared VPN connection provide the necessary high level security (Military Grade AES 256 Encryption).

    Flexible sharing in all channels of communication
    SecureDrop links can be shared via any method of communication. Whether a team uses Chat, Mail, Slack, or Skype, the link can be shared anywhere. This convenience leads to a greater acceptability and a higher level of security for your vital data.

    Secure data has an expiration date
    In order to minimize long term security risks, all SecureDrop encrypted data has an expiration date. VPN Tracker displays exactly how long any given file is available and as soon as it expires, the data automatically disappears - securely! The expiration period varies between 30 and 90 days.

    Professional security with VPN Tracker 365
    In addition to SecureDrop, VPN Tracker 365 also offers many other useful security features, particularly when working in remote teams. VPN Tracker is the #1 VPN client for OS X and is the effective industry the standard in secure VPN connections for Macs for more than 15 years. Developed by professionals in Germany, a VPN Tracker 365 plan covers all personal Macs and includes all VPN Tracker versions, supporting the latest version of OS X, El Capitan all the way back to Mac OS X 10.6.

    Price and availability
    You're already using an older version of VPN Tracker? Then you're entitled to 12 months of VPN Tracker 365 starting at only $49.99. The regular VPN Tracker 365 Plan starts at 79.99 EUR.

    Mail Designer Pro: Create responsive newsletters with style on your Mac
    Mail Designer Pro: Create responsive newsletters with style on your Mac
    Read more...
    Today almost every second email is opened on a mobile device. equinux presents Mail Designer Pro, productivity software for Mac users that allows you to create responsive mail designs with style. Mail Designer Pro fits seamlessly into newsletter design workflows: First you create a newsletter for desktop clients. Mail Designer Pro automatically creates a mobile-ready version that can be edited and optimized – zero HTML coding skills required. Moreover Mail Designer Pro also integrates collaborative features for teams working on newsletter designs.

    "While developing Mail Designer Pro, we analyzed the typical newsletter creation workflow and updated that process for responsive email design and collaborative creation in teams.", says equinux CEO Till Schadde. "Mail Designer Pro includes many attractive Design Ideas to introduce the creative possibilities that responsive designs open up. Just download the demo for responsive inspiration."

    Improve customer communication with responsive mail designs

    Current studies show that 42% of all emails are now read on mobile devices – and that percentage is increasing. Until today, companies had to dedicate additional resources and part of their budget to manually adjust and adapt HTML campaigns for mobile devices. Mail Designer Pro is a responsive solution without that additional overhead.

    The importance of responsive designs is underlined by studies, that demonstrate users are far more likely to make a purchase from an email read on their mobile device.  A mobile-optimized, responsive newsletter will increase click-through and conversion rates.

    Create newsletters as a team

    Mail Designer Pro was developed for freelancers, agencies and companies. Team members working on a design can lend a document to each other, allowing teams to collaborate on it together. Teamwork is also improved thanks to a commenting feature and an automatic change-log.

    Sending newsletters

    Mail Designer Pro supports sending test mails via your own email account. For larger campaigns, Mail Designer offers several delivery options: Designs can be uploaded directly to Campaign Monitor and MailChimp, and users of other online mail services can use the HTML export option to prepare their design for delivery.

    System Requirements

    Mail Designer Pro requires Mac OS X 10.6 or later and will fully support the upcoming release, OS X Mavericks with a free update.

    Pricing and Availability

    Mail Designer Pro is available immediately for just USD99.99 via www.equinux.com/maildesigner. For teams in agencies and creative departments, equinux has attractive multi-license offers. The classic version of Mail Designer, which can open and edit Apple Mail Stationery templates, is now available for just USD34.99. equinux is also introducing two bundle offers: Mail Designer Suite, which includes both Mail Designer and Mail Designer Pro (USD119.99), and Mail Designer Suite Ultimate (USD 199.99), which adds the stationery template collections 'Stationery Business Edition' and 'Team&Business Communication'. With the free demo version, all editing and design features can be tested (excluding save, export and mailing options).

    equinux présente le premier et le plus petit magnétoscope numérique (DVR) pour iPad&iPhone
    Read more...
    Munich, Allemagne - 20 juin 2012 : equinux annonce aujourd'hui un nouveau membre de sa famille de produits tizi : tizi+ est le premier et en même temps le plus petit récepteur TV pour iPad et iPhone capable d'enregistrer la télévision numérique (TNT) avec une commande par horloge. Et cela indépendamment de l'iPad et de l'iPhone. tizi+ offre l'ensemble des fonctions de tizi, le récepteur TV mobile populaire d'equinux, avec en plus la possibilité de programmer des enregistrements TV et d'enregistrer de manière entièrement automatique sur une carte microSD. "La communauté tizi souhaitait principalement une chose : des enregistrements programmables avec tizi. Nous réalisons ce souhait avec tizi+", déclare Till Schadde, président d'equinux. "tizi+ enrichit l'expérience médiatique sur l'iPad et l'iPhone en offrant un véritable plus en matière de mode de vie numérique : regarder la télévision où on veut et quand on veut." Programmer des enregistrements et enregistrer sans perte de qualité tizi+ permet de programmer les enregistrements de manière aussi simple qu'on s'y attend avec l'application tizi : il suffit de consulter le guide électronique des programmes (EPG) et de sélectionner l'émission souhaitée comme enregistrement avec le doigt. C'est tout. Pour réaliser l'enregistrement, on insère une carte microSD, raccorde tizi+ au réseau électrique par USB et c'est parti. tizi+ démarre tous les enregistrements programmés de manière entièrement automatique, sans liaison avec l'iPad ou l'iPhone, et les enregistre sur la carte microSD dans la qualité d'origine au format MPEG. Pour lire les enregistrements sur un iPad ou iPhone, soit tizi+ se connecte avec un réseau Wifi existant soit il utilise le hotspot intégré pour la transmission - tout comme pour la télévision en direct. tizi+ fonctionne avec l'iPhone (à partir de 3GS), l'iPad (tous modèles) et l'iPod touch (3ème et 4ème gén.). Pour ceux qui souhaitent commander tizi+ confortablement à distance sur l'iPad, il est possible de charger gratuitement l'application supplémentaire tizi Remote sur l'iPhone. Prix et disponibilité tizi+ est disponible dès maintenant chez Amazon au prix recommandé de 179,99 euros (TVA comprise). Le kit tizi+ comprend une carte mémoire microSD tizi+ storage de 16 Go et un bloc d'alimentation USB original tizi power (SchuKo). L'application tizi et l'application tizi Remote pour la commande à distance peuvent être téléchargées gratuitement sur www.tizi.tv et dans l'App Store. A propos de tizi tizi amène la télévision mobile sur l'iPad et l'iPhone. La famille de produits tizi comprend les appareils tizi+, tizi et tizi go : le produit phare est le nouveau tizi+, un récepteur TV mobile (DVB-T) et enregistreur vidéo. tizi+ enregistre sur des cartes mémoire interchangeables, indépendamment de l'iPad et de l'iPhone, avec commande par horloge, et économise donc la mémoire interne des appareils Apple. Son petit frère, tizi, transforme l'iPad et l'iPhone en une télévision mobile. Le signal TV est transféré par tizi+ et tizi via Wifi, l'intégration étant possible aussi bien dans le Wifi domestique que par mode hotspot lors des déplacements. tizi go est le récepteur TV extrêmement mobile et compact à enficher sur l'iPad (3ème et 2ème gén.) et l'iPhone 4S. Il présente une antenne marquante en forme de boucle et se caractérise par son utilisation simple comme un jeu d'enfant. Contrairement à tizi+ et tizi qui transmettent la télévision sans câble et adaptateur, tizi go est connecté au Dock Connector. Pour la télévision en direct, les appareils tizi n'ont pas besoin de volume de données en ligne ; les services en ligne supplémentaires comme la part d'audience en direct requièrent une connexion Internet. A propos d'equinux equinux conçoit et développe des solutions de première classe pour Mac, iPad et iPhone. Nos solutions s'adressent aussi bien aux utilisateurs particuliers que professionnels. Notre gamme de produits couvre les domaines du mail, des médias et de l'art de vivre. La famille de produits tizi est particulièrement remarquable pour les solutions de divertissement mobile pour iPad et iPhone. Dans la gamme de produits, on compte en outre l'application TV Movie. Nos produits ont été récompensés par plusieurs Apple Design Awards et ont été testés et estimés excellents par des médias spécialisés et grand public importants. Le siège principal d'equinux se trouve à Munich, en Allemagne, et il y a une succursale aux Etats-Unis.

    VPN Tracker eases the transition for Cisco Mac users
    VPN Tracker 6.4 with convenient import for Cisco connections and a new device profile for all EasyVPN capable Cisco gateways
    Read more...
    Mac users who are looking for a long-term alternative to their current Cisco IPsec VPN Client can now enjoy a smooth transition. equinux has released an update for VPN Tracker, the market leading IPsec VPN client for Mac OS X. VPN Tracker 6.4 can automatically import Cisco VPN Client connections (.pcf). This allows for a smooth transition from Cisco's IPsec VPN Client, which will be discontinued by Cisco at the end of July 2012. 

    The new import function makes it easy for Cisco VPN client users to switch over to VPN Tracker without any extra help. All three VPN Tracker editions (Professional, Player, and Personal) support importing .pcf connection files that use group passwort authentication.

    Easy setup and administration with Cisco EasyVPN

    VPN Tracker supports the simplified configuration and administration of VPN connections through Cisco EasyVPN. VPN Tracker 6.4 also includes a generic device profile for Cisco devices that support EasyVPN. The device profile permits end users to set up up their VPN Tracker connections without detailed knowledge about the Cisco VPN gateway they are connecting to. VPN Tracker also contains specific configuration profiles for Cisco ASA series, Cisco Concentrator series, and Cisco PIX.

    Mac users relying on IPsec VPN connections to their Cisco devices will find a comfortable and reliable solution in VPN Tracker. With its Secure Desktop, VPN Tracker is the control center for all VPN-based applications: File servers, databases, intranet access, remote desktop applications, and more. And VPN Tracker runs smoothly on 64 bit OS X Lion.

    More than 300 supported VPN gateways

    VPN Tracker uses the IPsec standard and therefore supports almost all IPsec-based security appliances from leading manufacturers such as SonicWALL, Juniper, Netgear, WatchGuard, and ZyXEL. VPN Tracker comes with device profiles and device-specific configuration guides for more than 300 different VPN gateways.

    Pricing and availability

    VPN Tracker 6.4 is available immediately. VPN Tracker 6 customers are able to update free of charge. VPN Tracker 6 licenses are available starting from 79 Euro. equinux also offers volume discounts for larger installations. Individual quotes can be calculated at www.vpntracker.com.

    Prepare your Music Library for iTunes Match with SongGenie and CoverScout
    Identify unknown songs, clean up song information and add missing album art
    Read more...
    Mac users can now get their music libraries ready for iTunes Match with CoverScout and SongGenie. equinux has updated SongGenie and CoverScout to take full advantage of music in the Cloud. With SongGenie, users can identify and fill in missing or incomplete song details, and with CoverScout find album artwork for all those uncovered albums.

    iTunes Match: Push song information and covers to all your devices

    With SongGenie users can identify unknown song titles and easily correct missing or incorrect song details. SongGenie can also help out with lyrics: the integrated search finds lyrics and adds them to tracks with just the click of a button.

    In order to find titles and other song details, SongGenie uses acoustic fingerprinting, similar to the method iTunes Match uses. This allows SongGenie to locate titles, artists, albums, genres and a variety of other details. After SongGenie has taken care of any missing information, iTunes Match will take care of pushing that information out to iOS devices via the cloud.

    Add missing album covers

    Since iTunes usually doesn't have covers for every album in a collection, CoverScout can lend a hand. CoverScout searches through several online sources and find and applies high quality artwork. CoverScout also offers a comprehensive set of tools to quickly edit each cover to perfection.

    The big advantage of SongGenie and CoverScout is that they work together in concert with iTunes Match: As soon as these two apps have added song details and cover art, the tracks will be automatically updated on devices with iTunes Match. It doesn't matter if music is already stored in the Cloud or not, song information and album covers can be updated, refined or completed at any time.

    Pricing and Availability

    With these latest software updates, equinux has tuned SongGenie and CoverScout to flawlessly function with iTunes Match. Both apps are available now for Euro 23.99/ USD 29.99 in the equinux Online Store and are also available as a bundle for only Euro 39.99/ USD 49.99.

    tizi go turns your iPad 2 into a mobile TV
    Mobile TV for the iPad: equinux releases tizi go, the compact TV receiver which connects to the iPad 2
    Read more...
    Just in time for the holiday season, equinux welcomes a new addition to the tizi family. tizi go, the new TV receiver exclusively for the iPad 2, differs from its big brother as it can be plugged directly into the iPad 2. tizi go is compact, really light, has an integrated cable antenna, and is super easy to set up. tizi go is made especially for the iPad 2 and has been officially recognized for its fantastic compatibility by Apple with the " Made for iPad" certification.  tizi go is powered by the tizi.tv 2 app, which is available free of charge. 

    A cool antenna with superb performance

    tizi go's slim, lightweight build (less than 20 grams), along with its integrated antenna, makes tizi go an attractive travel partner for every iPad user.  But it's not only about looks, tizi go's inner values are attractive as well! Underneath its beautiful white, glossy cover, lies a state of the art TV chip.

    tizi go comes equipped with a totally original, integrated, flexible cable antenna. It's built-in to tizi go, so there's no way to break it or lose it. The antenna is just as flexible as the cable from a pair of headphones. It works great, looks good, and is kind of fun to play with too. The tizi.tv app starts as soon as tizi go is hooked up to the iPad 2 dock connecter. It couldn't be any easier!

    tizi.tv 2.0: Never miss another show

    You can watch TV while browsing through TV listings, pause live TV (Timeshift) and continue watching it later, rewind to the exact second of any scene (Visual Timeline),  and jump back in time to record TV shows (Déjà Vu). This is intelligent TV: with tizi go, you have control of everything.

    There is no need to miss your favorite shows. The integrated electronic program magazine (EPG), offers a watch-list, and a reminder function which help keep you in the loop. With the swipe of a finger, you can browse through the upcoming TV listings, pinch the EPG with two fingers to see the available details (depending on channel), and put your favorite shows on your watch-list.

    A smart user interface: turn it any way you like

    tizi go and all of its features can be used on your iPad in portrait or landscape. That way you always get the full picture of what's on and what's coming up. You have a clear view with easy access to EPG, recording, as well as many other features. Watch TV on your iPad and browse the upcoming listings at the same time - now that's mobile TV heaven!

    Up to nine hours of tizi enjoyment

    Once you plug in tizi go, it's internal Li-Polymer battery powers your receiver. Once you start watching TV, your iPad battery will power tizi go for up to nine hours (with 30% brightness in airplane mode), giving you enough time to watch all your favorite shows. You can charge your tizi go with the included micro USB cable. 

    There's a tizi for everyone

    tizi go was designed exclusively for the iPad 2, but its big brother, tizi, was born to bring mobile TV to iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch users. As opposed to tizi go, tizi comes without cables and adapters: you can place the tizi mobile hotspot wherever the reception is best, such as by the window. tizi go sets itself apart from its big brother with its "plug and play" ease-of-use.

    Price and Availability

    tizi go is available exclusively on Amazon.de for 99,99 Euro (incl. VAT). You get, tizi go, the mobile TV receiver, with its integrated, flexible antenna, as well as a micro USB charging cable and Quick Start Guide. The tizi.tv 2 app can be downloaded free of charge from  www.tizi.tv  or on the Apple App Store.

    Secure connectivity on the go
    Read more...
    Employers are increasingly following the trend towards mobility by enabling their workforce to telecommute, working on the go and in home offices. The increasing sales of the latest MacBook Air and MacBook Pro computers reflect this. Working remotely does offer a great deal of flexibility; however, this flexibility also requires more security. The risks associated with accessing remote networks are far too often overlooked. equinux sheds light on these security risks and shows how to avoid them with VPN Tracker 6.

    Port forwarding: The gateway for attackers
    Users need access to company data from home offices and when traveling. To permit access, administrators often simply open and forward ports on the firewall, leaving the door wide open for unauthorized users. Often, the services exposed through port forwarding are not secure. And even if authentication and data transfer are encrypted, attackers can still exploit bugs and improper configurations. Security updates must immediately be installed for all exposed services and the operating systems they run on. Unpublished security vulnerabilities and delayed security update releases further increase the risk. And on top of that, there's the configuration effort: For every new service that needs to be available outside of the firewall, a new port forward has to be set up. And if two or more services use the same port, they need to be mapped to different, non-standard ports, leading to configuration problems for users

    The secure alternative: IPsec VPN
    As an industry standard, IPsec VPN is the most secure way to connect to internal networks over the Internet. Why? With IPsec VPN, there is one easily monitored point of entry to the internal networks. No internal services are exposed to the outside, preventing most security risks in the first place. Once connected to the VPN, resources on the internal networks are fully accessible, almost as if the computer were physically connected. You may already own a router or firewall that could serve as your new IPsec VPN gateway. More specific information can be found in your router's data sheet or manual. If the features listed include "IPsec VPN Tunnel" or "IPsec VPN Users" (e.g. "10 IPsec VPN Tunnels"), it is likely that an IPsec VPN can be set up on the device. If you do not yet own a router that is capable of providing VPN services, check out the list of popular devices on our interoperability website [LINK].

    Absolute protection for your data: VPN Tracker 6
    VPN Tracker 6, the market leading VPN client for Mac OS X, is designed to secure connections between Macs and remote networks. We have tested VPN Tracker with over 300 VPN gateway devices. To make setup even easier, we have written detailed configuration guides for many popular devices (http://www.vpntracker.com/interop). The latest algorithms and simplified certificate management protect important company information. Improved rekeying and Dead Peer Detection (DPD) ensure stable connections. And thanks to 64-bit compatibility and support for IPv6 addressing, VPN Tracker 6 is ready for the future today. If you have any questions about your VPN connection, the equinux Support Team is here to help (Verlinkung: http://www.vpntracker.com/support).

    Enjoy more mobility with tizi - the first mobile TV hotspot (DTT) for iPad and iPhone
    equinux releases tizi.tv 1.3 - a free update of its tizi App with a new tizi firmware and lots of improvement for more mobility
    Read more...
    Munich, Germany - 17th May 2011: equinux offers more mobility for digital TV with an update for tizi, the first mobile TV hotspot (DTT) for iPad and iPhone. Local TV stations can be found up to four times as fast as before through geo-matching. Additionally, you can store multiple TV channel lists eliminating the need for re-tuning. In car mode tizi automatically turns on as soon as the USB cable is plugged into a power source. tizi.tv 1.3 includes numerous improvements that users have been asking for and the new tizi firmware 3.0.

    Finding stations more quickly means more mobility

    Smart Location: tizi.tv 1.3 searches intelligently for (DTT) TV and radio stations. With the help of your GPS-position, tizi first searches based on know stations in your local area. On average, tizi is able to find regional TV programs four-times more quickly. To offer even more mobility, you can store multiple channel lists directly on your tizi that can be accessed by various devices: anyone who uses tizi on-the-go only needs to tune their stations once per location and can use them whenever they visit without the need to re-tune their tizi regardless if it is an iPad, iPhone or iPod touch being used.

    tizi.tv 1.3 has been optimized for the powerful architecture iPad 2: tizi uses the resources of the A5-processor to take care of intensive tasks like de-interlacing. In addition to improved image quality and preferences, iPad 2 users can take advantage of the new VGA/HDMI-Adapter to connect their devices to projectors, monitors or TV sets and turn any screen they come across into a digital television (DTT).

    Numerous improvements

    tizi.tv includes many of improvements that tizi users have been asking for: tizi can now auto-stop recording as soon as a TV show is over - users can of course add a minute or two buffer zone to make sure they don't miss a thing. A new sleep function will automatically turn tizi off at the end of the current TV show or after a specified amount of time. Additionally you will find that the tizi.tv user interface has been further refined: Volume is now available as an on-screen control, Superzoom in portrait mode will automatically change, and stronger password protection has been added via support for WPA-2 encryption.

    Price and availability

    The tizi.tv update is available now in the App Store at no charge. tizi users can also download the Mac software The Tube with the tizi driver at no charge from the tizi.tv website. The new tizi.tv App includes the latest firmware update 3.0 for the tizi device. The installation will start simply over the tizi.tv App from an iPad, iPhone or iPod touch. tizi is available for €149.95 / £149.95 through Apple Resellers and at tizi.tv. There you will find a list of tizi resellers located near you.

    TARMAC 1.5 with App Catalog
    Provide internal apps to your employees' iPhones or iPads
    Read more...
    Provide internal apps throughout your company — we're extending TARMAC 1.5 and have added an App Catalog to our iPhone- and iPad deployment solution. Enterprises and institutions can now provide their internal apps amongst their users – wirelessly over-the-air. Apps can be sorted into group-specific App Catalogs, that are available via the central TARMAC web interface.

    Here's how it works: Administrators can upload apps to the App Catalog along with an app icon. The users can then visit the App Catalog, which includes all the apps that the user is authorized to download. The user can choose an app and it will download directly to their iPad or iPhone.

    Administrators can define which user groups can download which apps. Only those apps will be shown to authorized users. This can be used for example to provide employees with an app to access internal sales figures or earnings predictions – all without the App Store.

    Take control – with the TARMAC App Catalog management interface. The administrator can use this new overview in TARMAC to upload, delete or update new apps. The App Catalog can even be customized with a logo to match your corporate identity. By ensuring that only authorized employees have access to the App Catalog, enterprise compliance- and security requirements can be met with TARMAC.

    But TARMAC 1.5 is flexible enough to offer even more usage scenarios: if you want to provide your app without worrying about provisioning profiles and user groups, TARMAC 1.5 can get your apps out to almost anyone. Educational institutions can provide students with a course directory and museums can offer exhibition guides right to users on their mobile iOS devices. This is particularly useful for media-rich applications with lots of videos or photos.

    That's not all. TARMAC 1.4 is also about security and maintaining security. If a user forgets their login data, the administrator can reset the passcode in TARMAC. If a device is left behind in a taxi or hotel room, the administrator can remotely lock the device or even completely wipe all data.

    TARMAC with Mobile Device Management
    equinux readies TARMAC for Mobile Device Management
    Read more...

    Munich, Germany / San Francisco, USA - 10th November 2010: TARMAC 1.3 has arrived. The latest version of our provisioning solution means the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch can now be integrated into your business networks even easier and more securely than before. IT managers can set up and manage devices iOS4 based remotely over-the-air - soon to be featuring Mobile Device Management.

    Our specialized solution for the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch is optimized to use the technical capabilities of Apple mobile devices. Mobile Device Management (MDM) is the next big step. Whether inventory management or active mobile device management, TARMAC supports all the Mobile Device Management features found in iOS4, allowing over-the-air set up and maintenance of iPads and iPhones. Once the devices are rolled out by the MDM server and are registered by TARMAC, your IT administrators can push updated user profiles, change settings or even wipe the device remotely. Mobile Device Management allows various device information to be retrieved over the air, such as current operator, iOS version, installed apps, or the current security settings.

    Die auf iPad, iPhone und iPod touch spezialisierte Lösung nutzt das technologische Spektrum der Apple-Geräte optimal. Und geht mit Mobile Device Management (MDM) konsequent den nächsten Schritt. Egal ob Inventory Management oder aktives Mobile Device Management – TARMAC unterstützt mit dem MDM alle Befehle, die iOS 4 auf dem iPad und iPhone over-the-air (OTA) erlaubt. Sind also die Geräte beim Rollout am MDM-Server von TARMAC angemeldet, aktualisieren IT-Manager Benutzerprofile, ändern Einstellungen oder ermöglichen den Zugriff auf Apps. Geräteinformationen wie aktueller Netzbetreiber, iOS-Version oder installierte Apps lassen sich genauso OTA abrufen wie die Sicherheitseinstellungen. Auch kann jedes Gerät aus der Ferne gelöscht werden.

    Above all TARMAC raises security levels with Mobile Device Management. Companies who change their security policies need only push the new settings over the air to all associated devices, without requiring user input. Should a mobile device be lost, your IT manager can lock the device remotely, reset the password and clear all data. User profiles can be configured to lock out apps such as iTunes or YouTube, as well as certain websites.

    Mobile Device Management is an important milestone on the TARMAC roadmap. Now there's yet another advantage to using a specialized iOS solution: TARMAC utilizes the technical capabilities of the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch without the technical compromises associated with supporting devices from other manufacturers.

    Pricing and availability

    TARMAC 1.3 is available immediately. MDM functionality will be made available by the end of 2010 via a free update and will require iOS4. TARMAC is already compatible for iOS4 on the iPad.

    TARMAC Business Server is available for a suggested retail price of $695 (or €495 plus VAT) through our authorized partners. iPhone and iPad licenses are available for $78 (or €60 plus VAT) per user per year (volume discounts available on request).

After 3.5 hours the Li-Ion battery can be recharged using a USB port on your laptop or even with your iPad's power adaptor. While running, tizi lets you know the current battery status using the front LED status light. Of course, red, orange and green. tizi doesn't do anything by halves when it comes to user friendliness. You get an overview of all available channels and, using the built-in programme guide, a shot at upcoming shows. Swiping lets you comfortably change channels - without any lengthy delay.

    The included tizi.tv App requires iOS 4 on the iPhone (3GS and 4), iPod touch (4. Gen., 3. Gen, 32 GB) and iOS 3.2 on the iPad. tizi supports portrait and landscape mode on the iPhone and iPad and offers full multitasking abilities under iOS 4. tizi is ready for the upcoming iOS 4 on iPad.

    SongGenie räumt die Musikbibliothek auf
    equinux veröffentlicht SongGenie zum Erkennen von Musikstücken und Reparieren der Songtitel
    Read more...
    Anonyme und falsche Musiktitel in der iTunes Bibliothek gehören ab sofort der Vergangenheit an. equinux hat heute SongGenie veröffentlicht, eine Software zum Analysieren, Erkennen und Benennen von Musikdateien. SongGenie erstellt von jedem Musikstück einen akustischen Fingerabdruck und ermittelt anhand spezifischer Charakteristika den Namen des Interpreten, des Musiktitels und des Albums.

    SongGenie erkennt automatisch, welche Musiktitel unvollständige oder fehlerhafte Titelinformationen enthalten. Dabei erkennt SongGenie Musiktitel, die weder Interpret, Album, noch den Namen des Musikstücks enthalten; Titel, die ohne Zusatzinformationen digitalisiert wurden und deshalb "Titel 01" heißen oder Zeichen enthalten, die auf fehlerhafte Namen hindeuten.

    Anhand eines akustischen Fingerabdrucks ermittelt SongGenie, um welches Musikstück es sich handelt und blendet die korrekten Informationen intuitiv in seiner Benutzeroberfläche ein. Dabei genügt ein Klick, um die vorgeschlagenen Informationen für den jeweiligen Musiktitel zu übernehmen.

    "SongGenie schöpft das Potenzial von iPhone, iPod und iTunes voll aus: Vor allem die Genius-Funktion in iTunes 8 profitiert von einer vollständigen Musikbibliothek", sagt equinux-CEO Till Schadde. "Noch nie war es intuitiver und einfacher, sein Musikarchiv zu pflegen, wie mit SongGenie und CoverScout."

    Preis und Verfügbarkeit

    SongGenie gibt es ab sofort für 24,95 Euro (USD 29.95) im equinux Online Store und demnächst im Apple Fachhandel. Zudem steht SongGenie im Bundle zusammen mit CoverScout 3 für 49,95 Euro (USD 54.90) im Online Store zur Verfügung. SongGenie ist auf Deutsch und Englisch lokalisiert.

    SongGenie cleans up your music library
    equinux releases SongGenie to detect music tracks and repair description texts
    Read more...
    Untitled and incorrect music titles in your iTunes library are now history. Today equinux released SongGenie, a software application designed to analyze, identify and complete music data. SongGenie constructs an acoustic fingerprint of each track and, based on specific characteristics, detects the appropriate artist name, song title and album title.

    SongGenie automatically identifies tracks containing incomplete or incorrect information. It even detects music titles for tracks with no artist, album or song title information; titles that were digitalized without extra information and are therefore called, for example, "Title 01" and additional characters that suggest incorrect names like an underline.  

    Using an acoustic fingerprint, SongGenie determines which track to work on and intuitively inserts the correct information in its user interface. With just a click, the appropriate description text is transferred to the track in question.

    "SongGenie taps the full potential of the iPhone, iPod and iTunes: The Genius function in iTunes 8 profits particularly well from a complete music library, " said equinux CEO Till Schadde. "It doesn't get easier to care for one's music archive than with SongGenie and CoverScout."

    The Tube 2.0 brings the TV community closer together
    equinux introduces TV solution, The Tube 2.0, with TV Chat and a list of new other features
    Read more...
    Today equinux introduced The Tube 2.0, the second generation of its popular TV software for the Mac, adding new community-oriented features. Using the new TubeTalk feature, TV viewers can chat with one another about the current program or even follow other users as they channel surf with BuddySurfing. In addition, The Tube 2.0 simplifies the overall recording process and adds a new list of features to The Tube.

    More conversation while watching TV – with TubeTalk

    With TubeTalk, equinux brings the TV community together. For every running television program, there is a visible chat room, in which all viewers can use to chat with one another. In the channel list, each viewer can see how many viewers are currently watching the running program for each channel, as well as when new messages are being sent. Each user can create their own profile, complete with user name, picture and status. The only thing needed to register is an equinux ID. To make it easier to find other users, you can search under all available profile information, allowing you to add your TV buddies to your TV buddy list.

    BuddySurfing - let your buddies channel surf for you

    Any true couch potato will be excited about BuddySurfing in The Tube 2.0. With just one click, you can automate your TV surfing, by setting The Tube to automatically switch the channel along with one of your buddies. So when your buddy changes to channel 1, 3 and then 6, The Tube will automatically change your channels to 1, 3 and then 6.

    Recording and Navigation made easy

    Even if you manually start a recording, The Tube 2.0 will automatically stop the recording, as soon as the program is over. And The Tube 2.0 simplifies the overall recording process. Once you have a program scheduled for a recording in the EPG, The Tube automatically grays out any other shows during that time slot, so there won't be any problems with overlapping. Even if the computer is in sleep mode when a recording is scheduled, The Tube will wake the computer up when the recording begins and switch it back to sleep once the recording has finished.

    Easily Find and Save Recordings

    To find saved recording faster and easier, simply search by name or date and search for keywords in the description texts, to help you easily narrow your search. Users can even search via Spotlight, now that all recordings are saved in the Movies folder. And those TV watchers, using Mac OS X 10.5 can take advantage of the Leopard QuickLook feature and find all necessary recording details at a glance.

    Prices and Availability

    Registered users can immediately download The Tube 2.0 for free from the equinux Website or by using the update function in The Tube.

Exported connections can also be locked and encrypted for additional security to prevent unauthorized editing of connections.

    Higher Security and faster connections with the new IPSec Engine

    The new interface is great for mobile users, but they'll also really appreciate the new IPSec engine: Thanks to the improvements made to this part of the application, VPN Tracker 5 can establish a secure IPSec tunnel in a third of the time than before. Multiple VPN connections can be started and stopped independently and VPN Tracker 5 also supports the latest security technologies, such as SmartCards, PKI Tokens and can securely store all passwords and Preshared Keys in the Mac OS X Keychain.

VPN Tracker Player is the prefect extension to VPN Tracker Professional in large scale installations, and provides system administrators with an easy way to manage and tweak the user's access to the VPN settings on mobile workstations.

    Today, equinux announces that its consumer line, consisting of CoverScout, iSale, MediaCentral, The Tube and TubeStick, is for Apple's next operating system Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard. equinux has also promised to release any necessary updates immediately following the release of Leopard, should Apple make any changes, affecting one of equinux' Leopard-ready products.

This has enabled equinux to set itself apart from the multitude of other software products. Their efforts have been awarded with multiple Apple Design Awards, most recently in 2006 for their online auction manager iSale, in the category "Best Mac OS X User Experience."

    "equinux stands for innovative products, that are both simple and intuitive. That's why it only makes sense that all of our consumer products are compatible with Mac OS X 10.5 from day one.

    Read more...
    Munich, Germany / San Mateo, USA - August 31st, 2007: equinux released The Tube 1.5 in time for IFA 2007. After a successful four-week public beta phase, the release version of the most modern TV software for the Mac with scheduled recordings and a free electronic TV Guide (EPG) is now available. The Tube 1.5 also expands Applescript support for timed recordings and makes some improvements to the TV-interface. Users can now also send other users of The Tube a 'TV Tip'. TV Tips can be sent from a currently running show, the EPG or the timed recordings schedule.

    New horizons for programmed TV recordings
    Thanks to extended Applescript support, The Tube 1.5 offers new horizons for programmed recordings: The integrated TV guide makes it that timed recordings are really simple: A simple click on the desired show is enough to schedule a recording. If The Tube isn't running at the time of the show, it will start automatically.

    The Tube 1.5 also supports manual start and end times, as well as a custom puffer before and after the scheduled show times. Now that these features can also be accessed via Applescript, equinux is offering 3rd party developers the opportunity to add even better support for The Tube to their own applications.

    Visual feedback assists in programming recordings

    Thanks to its visual feedback users see at a glance if multiple scheduled recordings overlap. The Tube indicates the conflict with a yellow warning sign in the scheduled recordings overview. The Tube will also automatically indicate which shows could potentially conflict with previously scheduled recordings whilst in EPG view. The integrated search field helps users to find interesting shows by not only searching through the names of shows, but also in EPG descriptions and genres. By clicking on its name, the user can choose to only view the TV guide for that specific channel.

    Share TV Tips with friends

    Users can now share their tips for current, upcoming and scheduled recordings with their friends: By right-clicking a show within the channel view, EPG or recording archive, The Tube lets users create a link to that show. When the recipient clicks the link, The Tube will open and display the TV tip directly.

    Support for custom EPGs in the XMLTV format

    The Tube 1.5 will display all available EPG data from the DVB-T data-stream in a convenient list view and can also display details about individual shows. Users who would like to find pictures or further information about a show can start a Google search from the context menu. The EPG data received via DVB-t can be supplemented or replaced by user-specified EPG data in XMLTV format.

    Make your Covers flow in iPhone - with CoverScout
    Get your iTunes ready for the new iPhone with CoverScout
    Read more...
    With the new iPhone, Apple is not just revolutionizing mobile Internet and mobile communication, but also the way you can browse through your music collection on your iPod: Using the wide display touch screen, you can search through your entire music collection with just one finger - just pick the album you want, flip the cover over and select the songs you want to hear.

    All users wanting to benefit from this intuitive user interface concept will have to manage their iTunes music library. Anytime you buy a new song from the iTunes music store, Apple delivers the album cover right along with it. However, according to Jupiter Research, only 20% of the music on an iPod actually comes from the iTunes music store. The majority of people import their music CDs into itunes, making it easier to store their music all in one place - the iPod. iPod users can fit anywhere from 240 songs with the iPod shuffle and up to 20,000 songs with the newest generation of iPods, holding up to 80 GB.

    The search in the iTunes music store is simplified

    While iTunes automatically looks up the track information for any CDs you insert, finding the right cover for your CD can be more difficult: Since the release of iTunes 7, you can choose the command "Get Album Artwork" and it will automatically search for missing covers - of course all covers automatically come from the iTunes music store and there is no way to see if the album covers chosen are the ones you want to have.

    As soon as the program starts, CoverScout gets all the songs from iTunes and presents them in a concise list. The overall design incorporates different colors and symbols that let you know - in just one glance - which album covers are missing, which ones are available and which ones have ID3 tags.

    CoverScout saves lots of time

    With just one click, CoverScout will search all Amazon websites as well as Google images for all missing cover albums. The results will be displayed in the Cover preview, allowing any images you choose to be applied to the songs. There's just no easier or faster way to complete your iTunes music library.

    Of course, you can always just manually search for each cover (one song at a time), but why do all the work yourself, when CoverScout can do it for you? CoverScout loads your entire album and sorts all music albums for you, making it easier to search for covers.

    Now, in the rare case you can't find the covers you're looking for on the Internet - there's no panic. You can just use your iSight camera or any other camera compatible with Quicktime to take a picture of the actual cover and later edit it in the CoverScout editor. No matter what it takes, we've got you covered.

    equinux introduces The Tube 1.1 with Timeshift and Déjà Vu
    The Tube 1.1 is able to time-shift TV programs, record them even after they have started watching and even copy them to Apple TV.
    Read more...
    From now on, The Tube-Users will never miss the the right time to start a recording. equinux has updated its TV software The Tube and integrated extended timeshift functionality, including Déjà Vu-Recording. Déjà Vu lets users rewind the currently running program and start a recording from an earlier point in the show. The improved exporting feature can transfer recordings to Apple TV, video iPods as well as iMovie.

    Déjà Vu - start recording later

    With the update to The Tube 1.1 users can not only pause and rewind their currently running TV shows, they can also start recording them a few minutes after they've started to watch them. This can be done by simply rewinding back to the point in time the Déjà Vu recording should start from and then clicking the record button.

    Timeshift with intelligent disk space management

    How far back users can rewind a TV show depends on when the channel was selected and how much disk space The Tube has been assigned. Once a channel has been picked, The Tube 1.1 automatically starts storing the show in the timeshift-cache. The current show can also be rewound back to the point when the channel was selected and recorded from that point on. By clicking the play/pause button, the current show can manually be paused and resumed using the timeshift functionality. An intelligent algorithm adjusts how much disk space The Tube is to utilize and adapts it dynamically, depending on how much space is left on the harddrive.

    Connecting to Apple TV, iPod and iMovie

    Not only can recorded shows be exported to a video iPod at different video qualities, The Tube can now also export recordings to Apple TV, using one of three different image quality settings. The new iMovie export feature enables the use of Apple's iLife application to edit recordings, e.g. to remove advertising breaks or to prepare recordings in order for them to be burnt to a DVD.

    TV-Guide at a glance

    In order to see what's on, right when the software is launched, The Tube stores the lastest EPG (electronic program guide) information and neatly displays the titles of currently running shows in the channel overview. This enables users to see all the currently running TV shows at a glance immediately after launching the software. Furthermore, The Tube 1.1. now also includes support for multiple audio channels. Audio channels can easily be switched with a simple click.

    The Tube 1.1 is a free upgrade for all registered users and can be downloaded and installed using the built-in update feature. The Tube software is included with every TubeStick - the affordable DVB-T (DTT) solution from equinux that seamlessly integrates with MediaCentral, the complete media center solution for Mac OS X.

    Availability

    equinux ships The Tube together with TubeStick, its competitive USB-stick for receiving digital terrestrial television (DVB-T). Which countries until yet use DVB-T you'll find on dvb.org. TubeStick is available at Apple Resellers or directly in equinux' Online Store in the following countries: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Luxemburg, Netherlands, Sweden, United Kingdom - and now also in Greece, Italy, Spain and Switzerland. From now on paypal is also accepted!

    Erweiterte Timeshift-Funktion mit Déjà Vu-Aufnahme
    Die equinux TV-Software The Tube bringt zusammen mit dem equinux TubeStick (DVB-T Stick) digitales Fernsehen auf den Mac. Nach dem Update auf The Tube 1.1 lassen sich Fernsehaufnahmen über die neu integrierte Timeshift-Funktion anhalten, zurückspulen und jetzt auch nachträglich aufzeichnen. Wer also das Fernsehvergnügen kurz unterbricht, verpasst trotzdem nichts. Man muss dazu lediglich auf den Zeitpunkt der gewünschten Aufnahme zurückspringen und die Déjà Vu-Aufnahme per Mausklick starten.

    Anbindung an AppleTV, iPod und iMovie
    The Tube 1.1 bietet die Möglichkeit, Aufnahmen für den Video-iPod und AppleTV in drei verschiedenen Auflösungen aufzubereiten. Der neue iMovie-Export erlaubt es zudem, Aufnahmen mit Apples iLife-Programm weiter zu bearbeiten, um etwa Werbeunterbrechungen zu entfernen und aufgezeichnete Sendungen zum Brennen auf DVD vorzubereiten.

    TV-Programm auf einen Blick
    Um schon beim Start der Software auf einen Blick zu sehen, was gerade läuft, merkt sich die Software die EPG (Elektronischer Programm Guide)-Daten der Fernsehsender und zeigt in der Senderliste den Titel der jeweils aktuellen TV-Sendung an. Dadurch haben Anwender schon beim Start der Software das laufende TV-Programm übersichtlich im Blick. Außerdem unterstützt The Tube 1.1 ab sofort Mehrkanalton. Lediglich ein Mausklick genügt, um die gewünschte Tonspur auszuwählen.

    Update auf The Tube 1.1 kostenlos
    Das Update auf The Tube 1.1 ist für alle registrierten Anwender kostenlos und lässt sich über die integrierte Update-Funktion downloaden und installieren. The Tube liegt jedem TubeStick bei, dem preisgünstigen DVB-T-Stick von equinux, der sich nahtlos in MediaCentral integriert, der kompletten Media Center Software für den Mac.

    Einladung zum großen equinux ProDay am Mittwoch, 25. April, 16:00 bis 19:30 Uhr
    Erleben Sie die neuesten Intel-Server von Apple live
    Read more...
    Server sind die Herzstücke im Unternehmen. Kraftvoll und zuverlässig arbeiten die Xserve-Systeme von Apple. Am ProDay werden Sie erleben was einen Xserve auszeichnet. Dazu zählen vor allem: außergewöhnliche, hohe Leistung, attraktiver Preis, zukunftsweisende Technologie (Intel Xeon Prozessoren), Redundanz (das zusätzliche Vorhandensein funktional gleicher oder vergleichbarer Ressourcen eines technischen Systems), wichtige Optionen für die Fernverwaltung (Lights-Out Management), individuelle Konfigurierbarkeit und das sichere Betriebssystem Mac OS X Server. Informieren Sie sich hier vorab über die technischen Details (Englisch). Der ProDay ist für Mac-Administratoren und Windows-Umsteiger interessant.

    Sicherheit geht vor. Sind Sie ausreichend abgesichert?
    Auch der stärkste Server wird im Störfall einmal schwach. Das kann teuer werden: Arbeitszeit fällt aus, Wartungskosten steigen, und der Umsatz schmälert sich. Teilausfälle im Serverbereich können zu Komplettausfällen im System führen, vor allem bei fehlender Absicherung. RAID-Systeme, redundante Netzteile, ein zweiter Server, VPN Tracker und APC Tracker bieten zum Beispiel einen guten Ausfallschutz von Anfang an. Am ProDay zeigen wir Ihnen, worauf es ankommt. Näheres zum Programmablauf:

    16:00 Uhr: Empfang
    Wir begrüßen Sie herzlich mit einem Willkommensdrink.

    16:30 Uhr: Zuverlässige Systemarchitektur
    Konfiguration von Xserve und Mac OS X Server

    17:00 Uhr: Hochverfügbarkeit mit Apple Servern
    Ausfallminimierung über Failover-Cluster

    17:45 Uhr: Security und Ausfallsicherheit im Netz
    Redundante Internetanbindung, hochverfügbare Firewalls & Co.

    18:45 Uhr: Fragen und Antworten
    Diskutieren Sie mit uns über Ihre Themen und Anforderungen

    Wann: Mittwoch, 25.04.2007, 16:00 bis 19:30 Uhr
    Wo: equinux AG, Kirschstraße 35, 80999 München

    Kernig: Der schnellste Mac aller Zeiten ist da. Mac Pro jetzt mit 8 Prozessorkernen.
    Mac Pro ab sofort mit zwei 3,0 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon Prozessoren im equinux Apple Shop erhältlich
    Read more...

    Wahnsinn! Der schnellste Edel-Mac von Apple legt noch einmal kräftig zu. Ab sofort kann man den brandneuen Mac Pro mit starken 2x 3,0 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon "Clovertown" Prozessoren bestellen – mit genialen 8 Prozessorkernen! Zum Vergleich: Ein Quad-Core Mac Pro mit 3,0 GHz arbeitet bis zu 2x schneller als zum Beispiel der Power Mac G5 Quad. Und weil der neue Mac Pro auch der konfigurationsfreundlichste Mac aller Zeiten ist, kann man alternativ auch einen Quad-Core Mac Pro mit mit zwei Dual-Core "Woodcrest" Prozessoren mit 2,0 GHz, 2,66 GHz oder 3,0 GHz konfigurieren.

    Erweiterte Höchstleistung
    Egal für welche Konfiguration Sie sich entscheiden, der neue Mac Pro überzeugt in Sachen Geschwindigkeit und Grafikleistung auf Workstation-Niveau, mit etlichen Erweiterungsoptionen und Konfigurationen (mit den Configure-to-Order-Optionen ca. 33 Millionen mögliche Konfigurationen). Das Gehäuse des Mac Pro wurde weiter optimiert und neu gestaltet. Es bietet Platz für vier Laufwerke mit bis zu 3 TB Festplattenspeicher und beinhaltet 8 DIMM-Steckplätze für bis zu 16 GB Arbeitsspeicher. Zusätzlich besteht die Möglichkeit bis zu zwei SuperDrive Laufwerke aufzunehmen. Natürlich dürfen vier PCI-Express-Steckplätze und mehr E/A-Anschlüsse nicht fehlen. Und das tun sie auch nicht.

    Das ist rein grafisch betrachtet nach wie vor sensationell
    Der neue Mac Pro stellt drei verschiedene Grafikkarten zur Disposition. Man sucht sich einfach die beste für die individuellen Anforderungen, Wünsche und Vorlieben aus. Das man an jede dieser Grafikkarten zwei Bildschirme anschließen kann, versteht sich von selbst. Mit den 30 Zoll Apple Cinema HD Displays wird das ein visueller Hochgenuss.

    Den neuen Mac Pro können Sie ab sofort im equinux Apple Shop bestellen. Bitte werfen Sie auch einen Blick auf unserere übersichtliche, tagesaktuelle Preisliste.

    Mehr als brillant. Der neue iPod shuffle ist jetzt in fünf Farben erhältlich.
    Wir bekennen Farbe. Blau, Pink, Grün, Orange und Silber.
    Read more...
    Der iPod shuffle ist wahrscheinlich der weltweit mobilste digitale Musik-Player. Aber da ist mehr. Viel mehr. Der kleine (doch schwergewichtige) iPod shuffle zählt zu den absoluten Spitzenreitern unter den iPod-Käufern. Bisher nur im Aluminium-Design erhältlich gibt es den shuffle ab sofort auch in Blau, Pink, Grün und Orange. Der große Bruder iPod nano hat es vorgemacht. Der kleine shuffle hat sich die guten Eigenschaften abgeguckt. Dafür sind große Brüder ja schließlich auch da.

    Abwechslung muss schließlich sein
    Zählt man den integrierten Befestigungs-Clip mit, ist der shuffle nur 4,1 cm groß und wiegt fliegengewichtige 15 Gramm – ganz nach dem Motto: weniger ist eben doch mehr. Der schicke, flippige iPod verfügt über einen beliebten Zufallsgenerator (Shuffle-Funktion), damit die Songs, immer neu, in unterschiedlicher Reihenfolge abgespielt werden. Abwechslung muss schließlich sein. Außerdem trumpft das Gerät mit 1GB Flash-Speicher (Platz für bis zu 240 Songs) auf.  Der iPod shuffle wird über ein Dock mit dem Mac oder PC verbunden und tauscht sich perfekt mit iTunes 7 aus.

    Die fünf verschiedenen Farbvarianten, zu einem Preis von je 79,00 Euro (inkl. MwSt.), sind ab sofort im equinux Apple Shop erhältlich!

    equinux launches iSale 4 - brand new Version!
    At Macworld 2007, equinux introduces brand new iSale 4, with a host of enhancements made to the two-time Apple Design Award winner.
    Read more...
    iSale 4 incorporates almost two dozen new and enhanced features and is available immediately for download on the equinux website.

    New Picture Functions
    With manual picture scaling and cropping, iSale 4 introduces one of the most requested features. Swapping pictures between picture zones and picture dragging from web browsers round up iSale's next generation picture module.

    Image Hosting: Save money and use Flickr
    Hosting additional photos on eBay costs. Users can save money by hosting their images on .Mac, FTP or - new in version 4 - use their free Flickr account.

    Advanced Template Functionality
    The template chooser has been rewritten from the ground to offer greater flexibility and reliability. iSale 4 now includes over 130 professionally designed templates which can be filtered through a stylish and fast keyword system. Users can select and combine keywords, like Collectibles, Jewelry or Electronics, to find a reasonable selection of templates in a matter of seconds. Thanks to the integrated template update engine, new templates will load as soon as they become available.

    Boosted Boilerplate Module
    In iSale 3, users could define a standard signature for their auctions. iSale 4 lets them define default content for every single textbox in a template. Terms and conditions, individual shipping details, or just a friendly salutation - once the text is stored in the preferences, it will be reused for every new auction automatically.

    Printing
    iSale offers great print layouts to help you keep an overview of your sold items. List views are offered to simplify managing all auctions. They include important item details like article number and picture, title, eBay item number, listing fee, seller ID, status, pricing information and sales date of all or selected auctions. Shipping can be streamlined using iSale's address label layout. Advanced users can create their own print layouts using the detailed instructions in the manual.

    Improved eBay and Amazon.com plugin; Delicious Library Support
    Transfering item descriptions from Amazon or eBay has been improved and features previews with pictures. Moreover, users can also include items from their media collection stored in Delicious Library to save time on creating new listings.

    Multiple eBay Accounts
    Managing auctions for more than one eBay account at a time is a welcome addition for experienced eBay users. Switching between authorized accounts to submit new auctions is fast and simple. For updating the auction status, it is not even necessary to switch accounts – iSale updates running auctions from all accounts transparently.

    New Pinboard Themes
    The classic iSale pinboard loved by many users is now complemented with 7 additional themes. Fabric-style pinboard, Cubicle, Wood, Chalkboard, Fridge, and more – there's a theme for every user's mood.

    Ready for Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard)
    equinux has a keen focus on utilizing the latest technologies. iSale 4 is well prepared for the future – and ready anticipated release of Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard).

    Free Grace Period for iSale 3 users
    iSale users who bought iSale 3 on or after Dec. 1st, 2006 are elegible to upgrade to iSale 4 free of charge. Specific information will be sent out to those customers over the next few days.

    All users now buying and activating iSale 3 boxes in retail store, automatically receive an free update to the new version 4 once registered.

    Pricing for Upgrades
    Upgrades to iSale 4 from previous versions start at $19.95 and are available at the equinux Online Store.
    Get your iSale Upgrade  until January 31st, 2007 and take advantage of our $5.00/€5.00 introductory discount!

    Besuchen Sie den equinux ProDay zum Thema Server

    Vergessen Sie Ihren alten Windows Server.
    Jetzt kommt der neue Xserve von Apple.

    Xserves sind nicht nur unglaublich schnell und gut skalierbar. Dank der Verwendung von Industriestandards, offener Softwareentwicklung und durchdachter Systemarchitektur, ist das Mac OS X virenfrei – eine Traumvorstellung für alle Administratoren, die sich mit Windows Sicherheitsupdates rumschlagen müssen!  Mit Xserve sparen Sie auch viel Geld für Lizenzen, denn die gibt es - im Gegensatz zur Microsofts Produktpolitik, wo jede Lizenz extra bezahlt werden muss - für uneingeschränkt viele Clients.

    Auch Mac-User sollten wissen, wovon wir sprechen
    Sie haben schon einen Mac Server im Einsatz? Schnell steigen die Anforderung und eine Erweiterung der Kapazitäten ist angesagt. Natürlich informieren wir Sie auch über die neueste Intel-Prozessor-Technologie. Dank Quad-Core 64-Bit Intel Xeon Prozessoren hat sich die Geschwindigkeit  (im Vergleich zum Xserve G5) verfünffacht. – Und wie steht es um Ihr Betriebssystem? Benutzen Sie etwa immer noch die Version OS 9? Dann wird's höchste Zeit für Mac OS X!

    Wir teilen gerne. Zum Beispiel unser großes Server-Know-how.
    Als Solution Expert Server and Storage finden wir Ihre spezifische Lösung, egal ob es um die Erweiterung einer bestehenden oder die Implementier- ung einer komplett neuen Serveranlage geht. Wir beraten Sie umfassend und freuen uns auf Ihre Individualität – auch als Windows Client.


    Ihre persönliche Einladung: 29.11.2006

    Agenda

    16:00 Uhr: Empfang
    Zur Begrüßung empfangen wir Sie herzlich mit einem Willkommensdrink.

    Mac OS X Server, mit seinen vielfältigen Möglichkeiten.

    Read more...
    More than ever, CoverScout is the perfect iTunes companion. While users could always search Amazon, Google Images or the Web with CoverScout, they were stuck with really rare or homemade albums.

To round up this release, the developers added a "maintenance" status to the powerful status filter: Albums with unknown status, missing or incomplete covers are combined into a single view for convenient editing. Some known issues have been fixed, improving the application's overall stability.

    CoverScout 2.2 - the matchmaker
    CoverScout brings together what belongs together, it copies proprietary iTunes 7 covers into the corresponding music file.
    Read more...
    CoverScout 2.2 allows to easily copy artwork, originally applied by iTunes 7, into the music file as standard ID3 tag. Benefits of the new feature are obvious: greater portability, elevated flexibility as well as boundless independance of iTunes 7. Covers are attached to single songs and complete albums and therefore always shown - all the time and no matter in which application the song is played. The CoverScout interface has been adapated accordingly and now displays both, the current cover status and the cover type (Cover Flow vs. ID3) in the library browser.
    To round things up, equinux fixed some minor issues as well as improved the compilation feature. Compilations are now handled transparently as having no particular artist.

    This update is free of charge to all existing CoverScout 2.x customers. More information and the option to download a free trial version of CoverScout is available on the equinux website. Purchases can be made directly in the secure equinux online store or at one of equinux' authorized resellers.

    CoverScout - iTunes' best buddy
    CoverScout 2.1.1 ensures its compatibility with iTunes 7 and has been actualized as the ideal complement to iTunes' new Cover Flow feature.
    Read more...
    With the release of iTunes 7, the feature to add missing album art to a user's iTunes library was included. The iTunes Store carries thousands but not all of album covers and therefore often does not find the right ones. CoverScout has been enhanced to even facilitate the search for hard-to-find covers. With its advanced Amazon and Google Images search options and on-the-fly iTunes synchronisation, users everywhere will have their library completely covered with CoverScout.

    "Adding covers to your iTunes library and creating a visual stunning library has become more important with iTunes 7. But did you try to find all your cover art with iTunes 7? Our experiences show that a standard user only finds around 30-40% of their missing music covers with iTunes. So it's CoverScout's turn. The application is the ultimate iTunes companion to add ALL missing covers," states Till Schadde, CEO of equinux.

    For more information about the latest release and all of CoverScout's features, please visit the CoverScout website. This release is free to all licensed CoverScout 2.x users. The Coverscout 2.x trailversion can be downloaded from online and is also available for purchase at the equinux Online Store.

    CoverScout 2.1 now offers an advanced search function, an integrated size slider as well as new contextual menu items.
    Read more...
    The overall application functionality within CoverScout 2.1 has been optimized. Additionaly, the search function has been extended now allowing the user to search not only for artists but also entire albums. This enables the user to be even more flexible.

    To conclude the 2.1 update a couple of bugs have been exterminated. The issue causing covers to be displayed upside down in 10.3.9 and 10.4 has been eliminated. Additionally, the issue resulting in an apple script error when assigning art to multiple albums has also been extinguished.

    To enjoy CoverScout 2.1 and all new features iTunes 6.0.2 or higher has to be installed. CoverScout users will be asked for the update the next time they start the application. CoverScout is available for purchase in our secure online store.

    Read more...
    At MacWorld Expo in San Francisco, equinux today introduced On Air for Mac OS X. With On Air, Mac users can now take advantage of the up and coming IP-based camera technology. In an innovative, broadcast-room style interface, On Air allows you to connect to economically priced PC-only supported network cameras to view and record on your Mac.

    „Mac users are always the first to adopt new technologies, but until now, they could not benefit from a new wide range of low-cost network cameras because they were not Mac compatible", said Till Schadde, CEO of equinux. „With the introduction of On Air, not only are we introducing an innovative interface for managing multiple streaming data sources, but are also bringing an imminent technology to the Mac market. You can be sure that we'll be supporting more and more network cams in the future."

    Users can trace multiple cams at a time publishing the cam's screenshots to Apple .Mac accounts. On Air supports a number of third party IP camera manufacturers. It provides a built-in camera wizard for easy setup on Macs. The support of third party manufacturers is constantly increasing and can be checked online at www.equinux.com/onair

    On Air is available for immediate download at www.equinux.com/onair. A 30 day demo allows you to test the application for free.

    Licenses can be purchased from the equinux online store for $39.90 www.equinux.com/store

    Brand new iSale 3 unleashed at MacWorld San Francisco
    Award Winning iSale brings tons of new features to eBay auctioners
    Read more...
    iSale 3 once again redefines the way you sell items on eBay. It includes more than two dozen new major features.

    iSale 3 offers a sophisticated WYSIWYG template editor to beautify your auctions and attract more buyers. Whenever equinux releases new templates, you can download them directly to your application totally free of charge.

    A funky pinboard layout shows all your auctions in a Polaroid-style photoshow, with a price tag to indicate your highest bid. It is an intelligent and intuitive way to manage your auctions.

    With the integration of Google Map, iSale users can now geographically locate buyers in the US and view them on a map.

    „Using eBay today, one has to figure out the end date by looking at a calendar, substracting the length of the auction to find the right date to start. That's weird." says Till Schadde, CEO of equinux. „With our new Smart Date feature you can define Saturday, 10 pm, as your preferred end date and iSale will automatically do the rest for you."

    One of the many additional features is the Amazon and eBay import function. iSale searches eBay and Amazon for product descriptions including photos, that can then be imported into an auction. This is awfully time saving and makes your auctions accurate.

    iSale is well-known for its Mac OS X integration. Well equinux has done it again, using Spotlight technology in their new Mail integration feature. It searches all emails related to a specific auction and displays them directly in iSale.

    iSale 3 is being initially launched in English. French and German language versions will be available shortly.

    iSale users who bought iSale after Dec. 1 2005 are elegible to upgrade to iSale 3 free of charge. Specific information will be sent out to those customers within the next days.

    Upgrades to iSale 3 from previous versions start at USD 14.90 and are available in the equinux online store: www.equinux.com/store

    TomTom Threatens to File Suit Against equinux over TamTam – Mac Software for TomTom GO
    equinux halts the sale of TamTam and criticizes the Mac-hostile firm politics of TomTom.
    Read more...
    Munich, Germany - 21st December 2005: The Dutch navigation-system manufacturer TomTom has threatened to file suit against the software developer equinux should they fail to make the wanted changes in the sales and marketing of TamTam. equinux introduced "TamTam for Mac OS X" in 2004. With this introduction, equinux had made the (up to then) only all-in-one navigation unit from TomTom accessible to Mac users. With TamTam, Mac users were finally able to load maps, voices, firmware updates as well as perform backups for their TomTom GO.

    TomTom brought forth numerous complaints, including that equinux must should give up and cease to use the "TamTam" name. equinux must also commit to no longer using the program icon of TamTam; TomTom feels that there is a danger of mistaking Tam Tam's feet logo with TomTom's hand logo. Lastly, equinux is no longer allowed to use the term "TomTom". The resulting effects of this complaint is essentially a sales-ban for TamTam.

    "Legally, we are not overly concerned about TomTom's threats. Nevertheless, we have decided to remove TamTam from the market, meaning we will no longer promote TomTom products," says Till Schadde, CEO of equinux.

    Effective immediately, equinux is halting the sale of TamTam.

    "TomTom is that typical hardware manufacturer that first ignores the Mac market, leaving others to pave the way and make their devices Mac compatible. Once the market has matured, they then take-over via arbitrary threats against those who provided the initial Mac-based solutions," says Till Schadde.

    equinux, located in United States and Germany, is a developer of Mac applications for professionals and consumers. Market-leading VPN Tracker is specifically designed for Mac users on-the-go, wanting a secure remote connection to their office network. iSale, the Apple Design Award winning and eBay certified user-friendly application allows users to easily sell products on eBay.

    FAQs

    Why has equinux stopped the sale of TamTam?
    TomTom has filed a complaint against equinux. Among other demands, equinux is required to remove and stop its use of the name TamTam, the feet icon and the use of the TomTom name.

    equinux sees no other possibilities and would like the Mac market to understand the grounds for not developing further TomTom solutions. Therefore, equinux has ceased to distribute and sell TamTam, effective immediately.

    I have TamTam for Mac OS X, should I stop using the program?
    Naturally if you have purchased a product you should feel free to continue to use it. However, equinux will stop promoting TomTom products.

    Will I still be able to obtain support for my previous TamTam Purchases?
    equinux will continue to provide quick and efficient support for TamTam. However, we will no longer be developing the TamTam application. Should you need support for TamTam, please contact us by email.

    Is equinux calling for a boycott of TomTom?
    No.

    Did TomTom help equinux in the creation of TamTam?
    No. equinux developed TamTam through reverse-engineering in 2004 providing a Mac solution for the TomTom Go all-in-one Navigation system. We paved the way for TomTom's entrance into the Mac market and made this product compatible for Mac users worldwide.

    What alternative Mac compatible navigation systems are currently available?
    Each day new attractive navigation systems are introduced. Sony recently announced the introduction of the nav-u series. This navigation system will be available in January; however, the Mac compatibility of nav-u is yet to be known.

    We will gradually be updating this list as devices become readily available. If you  are familiar with any Mac compatible navigation systems, please email us and we will be happy to add it to this FAQ entry.

    Navigationshersteller TomTom droht equinux mit Klage wegen Mac Client TamTam
    equinux stoppt Verkauf von TamTam mit sofortiger Wirkung und kritisiert die Mac-feindliche Firmenpolitik von TomTom
    Read more...
    München, 21.12.2005. Der niederländische Hersteller von Navigationssystemen, TomTom, droht dem Softwareanbieter equinux eine Klage an, sollte equinux den Mac-Client TamTam unverändert weiter vertreiben. equinux hatte 2004 die Software "TamTam für Mac OS X" vorgestellt, und die bis dahin nur Windows-kompatiblen All-in-one Navigationsgeräte von TomTom für Mac-Anwender nutzbar gemacht. Mit TamTam kann man auf TomTom Go Devices weitere Karten, Stimmen, Firmware Updates aufspielen sowie Backups herstellen.

    TomTom führt in der Klageandrohung zahlreiche Punkte auf, unter anderem soll equinux gezwungen werden, den Namen TamTam aufzugeben. Zudem soll equinux sich verpflichten, das Programm-Icon von TamTam wegen Verwechselungsgefahr mit TomToms Hand Logo nicht mehr zu verwenden und generell den Begriff "TomTom" nicht mehr zu verwenden. Die Drohungen kommen praktisch einem Verkaufsverbot gleich.

    "Rechtlich sehen wir zwar allen Punkten der Klageandrohung sehr gelassen entgegen. Wir haben uns aber trotzdem entschieden, TamTam sofort vom Markt zu nehmen, um im Mac-Markt nicht weiter für Produkte von TomTom zu werben", so Till Schadde, CEO von equinux.

    equinux hat daher den Vertrieb von TamTam mit sofortiger Wirkung eingestellt.

    "TomTom ist der typische Hardware-Anbieter, der zuerst den Mac-Markt ignoriert, es anderen überlässt, eigene Geräte Mac-tauglich zu machen, um dann schließlich mit Klagen den bereiteten Markt selbst übernehmen zu wollen", so Till Schadde.

    equinux, mit Firmensitzen in USA und Deutschland entwickelt Consumer und Professional Software für die Macintosh Plattform. Die marktführende Software VPN Tracker, ermöglicht Mac Nutzern von unterwegs auf Ihr Firmennetzwerk zu zugreifen. iSale, die von Apple mit den "Design Award" augezeichnete und von eBay zertifizierte Software ermöglicht seinen Nutzern ganz einfach bei eBay zu versteigern.

    FAQs

    Warum hat equinux den Vertrieb von TamTam gestoppt?
    TomTom hat equinux mit einer Reihe von Klageandrohungen überzogen. Unter anderem will man equinux den Namen TamTam, das Fuß Icon und die Nutzung des Namens TomTom verbieten. Das kommt praktisch einem Verkaufsverbot gleich.

    equinux sieht den möglichen Klagen zwar gelassen gegenüber, möchte im Mac Markt aber verständlicher Weise nicht weiter für TomTom Produkte werben und hat daher den sofortigen Verkaufsstop beschlossen.

    Ich besitze TamTam für Mac OS X. Darf ich das Programm nun nicht mehr nutzen?
    Natürlich darf TamTam von allen Nutzern, die das Produkte gekauft haben, weiter genutzt werden. equinux stoppt nur den Vertrieb des Produktes, da man nicht mehr weiter für TomTom im Mac Markt werben möchte.

    Ich besitze TamTam für Mac OS X. Bekomme ich weiterhin technische Unterstützung von equinux?
    equinux wird weiterhin den bekannt guten und schnellen Support von TamTam leisten. Allerdings werden wir TamTam nicht mehr weiterentwickeln. Bei Support Anfragen wenden Sie sich bitte per Mail an unser Team.

    Ruft equinux zum Boykott von TomTom Geräten auf?
    Nein.

    Hat TomTom equinux bei der Erstellung von TamTam für Mac OS X geholfen?
    Nein, equinux hat TamTam durch reines Reverse Engeneering entwickelt und so bereits in 2004 das TomTom GO All-in-one Navigationssystem Mac kompatibel gemacht. Wir haben TomTom so den Weg in den Mac Markt geebnet und das Produkt für Mac Anwender nutzbar gemacht.

    Welche alternativen Mac-kompatiblen Navigationssysteme gibt es?
    Jeden Tag erscheinen neue attraktive Navigationssysteme. Sony hat für Januar sehr interessante Geräte der nav-u Reihe angekündigt. Ob diese Mac kompatibel sind, bleibt abzuwarten.
    Wir werden diesen Beitrag nach und nach updaten. Sollten Sie Mac kompatible Navigationssysteme anderer Hersteller kennen, freuen wir uns über eine E-Mail.

    VPN Tracker et SonicWall: un duo d’enfer
    Les utilisateurs de Sonicwall-Mac peuvent se réjouir : la dernière version de VPN Tracker, logiciel leader sur le marché du VPN-Client pour Mac et développé par equinux, arrive sur le marché.
    Read more...
    L'entreprise equinux a annoncé aujourd'hui, depuis le hall de démonstration de l'Apple Expo de Paris, le lancement d'une nouvelle version de son Client VPN largement utilisé, le VPN Tracker.

    VPN Tracker 4.5 est le seul client VPN pour Mac OS X qui supporte le DHCP SonicWALL par l'IPsec, ce qui conforte sa position de solution VPN leader pour Mac OS X.

    Le VPN Tracker 4.5 supporte le DHCP par le IPsec, facilitant ainsi une connexion VPN avec les équipements VPN proposés par SonicWALL. « Client Provisioning », le mot est lancé. Cela vous permet de télécharger la configuration VPN depuis la passerelle SonicWALL, supprimant ainsi la nécessité de configurer manuellement les ordinateurs de chaque utilisateur.

    Le déploiement et la gestion de l'installation VPN seront simplifiés à l'extrême via cette technologie. Nul besoin de fichiers de configuration individuels. C'est la configuration centrale de votre passerelle VPN qui fournira cette donnée dorénavant.

    « Savoir que les utilisateurs Mac de VPN Tracker 5 peuvent accéder plus facilement à leur solution VPN basée sur SonicWALL nous réjouit », explique Ortwin Gentz, directeur technique d'equinux. « Notre collaboration avec SonicWall a été une expérience réussie dont les retombées seront bénéfiques pour toute la communauté SonicWALL-Mac ».

    Parallèlement au DHCP par l'IPsec pour les passerelles VPN SonicWALL, VPN Tracker accepte aussi le « Client Provisioning » via le « Mode Config » proposé par nombre d'équipementiers de passerelles VPN comme de Juniper et Cisco.

    Les deux méthodes sont utilisées pour distribuer les paramètres de configuration requis tels que l'adresse IP, l'information DNS, etc etc, à la passerelle VPN du client. Dans le cadre d'implantations à grande échelle, le « Client Provisioning » c'est un must.

    equinux offre la nouvelle version de VPN Tracker 4.5 aux utilisateurs possédant une licence utilisateur VPN Tracker 4.x. Cette nouvelle version est disponible sur le site Internet www.equinux.com/vpntracker/download

    Passer commande ou upgrader le VPN Tracker version 3.x en version 4 est possible depuis le magasin virtuel equinux www.equinux.com/store

    VPN Tracker and SonicWALL - The Perfect Pair
    The Latest release of VPN Tracker, the market-leading Mac VPN-client from equinux, will have SonicWall/Mac-users jumping with joy.
    Read more...
    Today the software developer equinux, live from show-floor of Apple expo 2005- Paris, has announced a major version update for their widely-used VPN Client, VPN Tracker. VPN Tracker 4.5 is the only VPN-Client for Mac OS X that supports SonicWall's DHCP over IPsec truly making it the world's premier VPN Solution for Mac OS X.

    DHCP over IPsec makes it easier to setup a VPN connection with SonicWALL's VPN-Appliances. "Client Provisioning" is the magical word; this enables a direct download of the VPN-configuration from the SonicWALL VPN-gateway thereby eliminating the need to manually configure each users' computer.

    The deployment and management of VPN-installation, through this technology, will be simplified to an extreme. No more individual configuration-files will be needed. This information will be supplied directly from the central configuration of your VPN-Gateway.

    "We are very excited that Mac-users with VPN Tracker 4.5 can now gain access more easily to their SonicWALL-based VPN Solution," said Ortwin Gentz, CTO of equinux. "Our collaboration with SonicWALL has been an excellent experience that is sure to be a great benefit for all SonicWALL/Mac-users."

    Alongside DHCP over IPsec for SonicWALL VPN-Gateways, VPN Tracker also supports Client Provisioning via "Mode-Config," used by a variety of VPN-gateway manufacturers like Cisco and Juniper.

    Both methods serve to automatically distribute the needed configuration-parameters, such as IP address, DNS-information, etc., from the VPN Gateway to the client. In large VPN implementations, "Client Provisioning" is a must.

    equinux is offering the VPN Tracker 4.5 update free to all registered VPN Tracker 4.x users. This update is available at www.equinux.com/vpntracker/download.

    Purchases and upgrades from VPN Tracker 3.x can be made at the equinux Online Store - www.equinux.com/store.

    Massive Update Offers Dozens of New Features and Improvements
    Read more...
    After an exclusive preview of the latest version of iSale at "eBay Live!" in San José, today equinux has released Version 2.0 of their eBay auction-manager. Due to their honor of receiving an Apple Design Award, equinux is offering this upgrade for free to all registered users of iSale. The next generation of iSale includes many new and improved features that will make auctioning on eBay faster, easier and more enjoyable than ever before.

    Now those who are using eBay Stores can post auctions directly to their store. This opens new possibilities and enables these select eBay users to benefit from their own virtual store.
    In addition to .Mac image hosting, iSale also now supports FTP Servers. Using either of these image hosting options will alleviate the need for per-picture-charges allowing you more freedom and flexibility in the improvement and design of your auctions.
    One notable change in iSale is an improved "Category Browser." Rather than filtering through categories, users can now search and save often used categories to an integrated "Favorites" tab. Additionally, the file path is displayed beneath the browser window, granting the opportunity to directly jump to the eBay website to view other listings within that category. Don't worry about eBay changing category names and locations, iSale automatically updates this info every time you retrieve the status or submit an auction.

    iSale also now includes an eBay style preview. With a single-click of the eBay Preview button, iSale will display a preview of your auction exactly as it will appear on eBay. Consider this a "Print Preview" for eBay.
    This update is topped-off with improved navigation, an expanded Dashboard Widget, a new "Drag and Drop" auction exporting feature as well as the possibility to update the status of every finished auction with just one-click of the "Status" button. Last and surely not least, those using eBay USA will happy to see that "Calculated Shipping" has been added to iSale. iSale 2.x can be downloaded at equninux.com.

    VPN Tracker 4 with Mac OS X 10.4.1 Update now fully Tiger compatible
    Speed problems solved with Apple's update, Tiger overtakes the Panther.
    Read more...
    With Apple's today update to Mac OS X 10.4.1, VPN Tracker 4, the leading Mac OS X VPN client, is completely Tiger compatible. Due to a kernel issue in the first Tiger version (10.4.0), VPN connections were plagued by sluggishness and delay. Apple, in close cooperation with equinux, has now solved this problem.

    equinux presented VPN Tracker 4 at the Networld+Interop trade show in Las Vegas this May. The new version offers important features like Smart VPN (automatic VPN connection when needed), Mode-Config support (with support for Cisco's EasyVPN) and automatic NAT detection and runs smoothly with Tiger. The data transfer speed of the VPN connection has even been improved when compared to Mac OS X 10.3 („Panther").

    „This is a great development for Tiger users – now they don't have to choose between Tiger and a fast VPN", commented Ortwin Gentz, equinux CTO. „To solve the kernel issue, we worked in close cooperation with Apple achieving the best solution for our customers. All Tiger users can now profit from our efforts."

    VPN Tracker is available in two editions, Professional and Personal Edition.  The Professional Edition, especially designed for network pros, can be purchased for US$ 199.90.

    iSale 1.7 fits perfectly with Tiger
    New version supports innovative Mac OS X 10.4 features
    Read more...
    equinux has released today a new version of its leading eBay selling manager tool iSale for Mac OS X. The focus of this version has been placed on Apple's new operating system Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger).

    Version 1.7 supports Apple's fast, new, system-wide search function, Spotlight. Additionally, there is a dashboard widget which provides users key information about running auctions. One interesting new feature is the RSS feed in combination with a .Mac account. With this new cross-platform technology, individual auctions can be easily publicized for potential customers. For example, Safari users under Tiger can then see all auctions from one seller with the click of a button. iSale also supports automator, which allows you to accomplish often recurring actions automatically.

    Even for Panther users there are many new and useful functions in version 1.7: Auctions can be observed in iCal and an alarm message reminds users that their auction will soon be ending. With .Mac exchange users can put all their auctions on the iDisk of their .Mac account and restore when needed. This offers access to the auctions from anywhere. There is also a new email link to let everyone know about an auction.

    „iSale 1.7 is on par with the exciting new Mac OS X developments", commented Alexander Dorner, head of Software Development at equinux. „With Tiger, working on the computer is more fun and the same is true of the new version of iSale."

    This upgrade is available free of charge for existing iSale 1.x customers.

    Fortinet and equinux Announce Compatibility of FortiGate Systems and VPN Tracker for Mac OS X
    Enables Remote Macintosh Users to Securely Connect to Corporate Networks Protected by Fortinet
    Read more...
    Fortinet - the confirmed market leader in Unified Threat Management (UTM) and only provider of ASIC-accelerated, , network-based antivirus firewall systems for real-time network protection, and equinux, a renowned provider of software specifically designed for Mac OS X platform - today announced the compatibility of FortiGate™ Antivirus Firewalls and equinux VPN Tracker. Branch offices and remote users running the Mac operating system will now be able to connect to corporate networks protected by FortiGate systems over a secure virtual private network (VPN) connection. For VPN deployments in Microsoft Windows environments, Fortinet delivers its own FortiClient™ Host Security software.

    Distributed networks are commonplace nowadays, as businesses benefit from the increased productivity the connectivity between branch offices and remote users brings. However, the downside of this is the risk to the security of corporate information it entails, be it email or confidential files. A secure VPN connection is a necessity today to any company running a distributed network, particularly as cyber-criminals are constantly creating increasingly sophisticated methods to gain access to corporate information.

    "VPN Tracker is the market leading VPN Client for the Mac OS X platform and we are continuously enhancing its compatibility with leading VPN gateways, said Ortwin Gentz, CTO, equinux. "We are very happy to welcome Fortinet to our group of certified vendors. It's great to put Mac users in the position to profit from Fortinet's superior security technology."

    Fortinet's award winning ASIC-accelerated FortiGate systems deliver real-time complete content protection through the integration of a broad range of security functions - including antivirus, firewall, virtual private networking (VPN), intrusion detection and prevention, content filtering, traffic shaping, and anti-spam. All of Fortinet's FortiGate systems are ICSA-certified, easy to manage and provide cost-effective network-level and content-level protection at the network edge.

    "Viruses and other attacks on the Macintosh operating system are on the rise, eradicating the once-thought notion that Mac users are immune to hackers, spammers and phishers," said Adam Stein, Vice President of Corporate Marketing for Fortinet. "Fortinet is pleased to announce this collaboration with equinux and to be able to extend the benefits of our high-performance unified threat management systems to Mac users who work remotely or in branch offices around the world."

In just two quick steps, these new hardware components „iJuice“ and „Movie mini“ turn your Mac mini into the ultimate portable DVD player!

    „iJuice“ can be quickly and easily docked to the Mac mini and supplies it with up to 16 hours of power. After charging just 30 minutes with the Mac mini charger or with the Auto-charging adapter (available seperately), iJuice is charged up to 80% capacity.

    „Movie mini“ is a comfortable 7“ display with integrated stereo speakers and clickwheel which is seamlessly attached to a Mac mini dock and offers a built-in HDTV 7“ widescreen disply with 1280 x 720 pixel resolution. The touch sensitive clickwheel makes navigating a cinch, and the battery capacity is the envy of all leading portable DVD players on the market.

    „iJuice and Movie mini are the ideal combo for every Mac mini owner. iJuice ensures that the power doesn´t go out, and Movie mini makes watching DVDs on the go an experience,“ commented equinux chief designer Kay Dollfus. „We put a lot of emphasis on design and an interesting user experience, just like Apple users are used to.“

    With these components, equinux is targeting the fast growing so-called „DVD-nomad“ market. Users go with friends out for a drink, take their Mac mini with them and dock it to the affixed iJuice batteries. Then just attach the Movie mini display and connect by WLAN to a huge database with over 50,000 movies to choose from. Your evening is a guaranteed hit.

    „We are planning on opening together with an ambitious Chinese investment group a chain of ‚Movie-Bars‘ in San Francisco, New York, Vancouver, Tokyo, Moscow, London, Hamburg, Paris and Fargo. Guests can bring their Mac minis and watch movies with their friends while enjoying a fine range of cocktails and non-alcoholic beverages in a hip atmosphere,“ remarked Julia Markovic, product manager at equinux for both iJuice and movie mini.

    Read more...
    equinux USA, Inc., a renowned provider of software designed specifically for the Mac OS X platform, announced today compatibility between their market leading VPN client software, VPN Tracker, and NETASQ's IPS firewall series. Remote networking with a NETASQ firewall is easier than ever for Mac users who can now share files, databases and emails over a secure Internet connection.

    Setting up a virtual private network (VPN) connection is a cost efficient and simple way for companies to maximize security without compromising the requirements of remote access. Since 1998, NETASQ has developed IPS firewall and VPN security solutions, focusing on the network security needs of a wide range of departmental sites, service providers and remote users.

It allows businesses to benefit from the wide range of features and high performances offered by NETASQ's IPS-Firewalls", said Matthieu BONENFANT, Product Manager at NETASQ. "A simple NETASQ profile that has been predefined in VPN Tracker's user-friendly GUI allows creating a VPN tunnel between a Macintosh client and a NETASQ IPS-Firewall with just a few mouse-clicks. NETASQ is charmed by equinux approach of profile selection because it considerably reduces installation costs and eliminates configuration errors."

    With a user-friendly interface, built in how-to guides and compatibility with most third party solutions, VPN Tracker has firmly established itself as the worldwide leader in VPN client software for the Mac OS X platform. Utilizing IPsec protocol for data encryption, the software creates a secure VPN tunnel over the Internet to a NETASQ IPS firewall, allowing branch and home workers to securely access their company's Intranet.

    "equinux is dedicated to creating the highest quality software for the Mac OS X platform and collaboration with leading gateway manufacturers is crucial to our success," said Ortwin Gentz, CTO at equinux. "VPN Tracker is compatible with a wide range of devices, but we are especially proud to announce compatibility with NETASQ."

    equinux Unveils New VPN Tracker 3
    VPN Tracker 3 offers Extended Authentication (XAUTH) as a solution to large enterprises seeking to integrate VPN technology into their operations
    Read more...
    equinux today announced the newest release of their flagship software, VPN Tracker. VPN Tracker 3 features dramatic improvements in the user experience and allows for added security in the form of Extended Authentication (XAUTH).

    "Version 3 is the next step for us in offering a total VPN solution for the Mac platform. We have extremely enhanced VPN Tracker, not only in overall usability but also in technical capabilities with the integration of top requested features like XAUTH," said Till Schadde, CEO at equinux. "We are positive that all new and existing users will love it."

    VPN Tracker 3 differs from current VPN Tracker version 2.2 in a variety of ways. The changes are aimed at improving the enduser experience and the ability to utilize VPN Tracker in large VPN scenarios. Key changes include:

    Extended Authentication (XAUTH): VPN Tracker now supports XAUTH as an authentication mechanism. This allows multiple users to share the same pre-shared key, while still allowing for restricted access to the central network on an individual user basis. This presents an ideal solution for larger VPN scenarios and makes VPN Tracker even more compatible to different VPN gateways.

    Improved Tunnel Stability: New version offers increased connection stability to users with dynamic IP addresses and those utilizing their computers' sleep mode function.

    Redesigned User Interface: Among various improvements is a new tab based connection window, user friendly toolbar in the main window, and a detailed connection status description including customizable connection icons.

    Integrated How-to Guide: The user is now presented a list of all VPN devices which are known to be compatible, ordered by vendor. You can click on the device and you will have the option to pull up a How-to guide.

    Remote DNS: With this option you are able to use nameservers in the remote network. This allows access to remote servers by name instead of IP address. You also have the choice of using the nameserver for all DNS queries or for specific subnets only.

    Simplified Network Setup: The network masks can now be entered in standard dotted-decimal format (e.g. 255.255.255.0). You are still able to enter it in the CIDR-notation as well.



    VPN Tracker 3 is available in two different editions: The Professional Edition and the Personal Edition. While both editions feature the redesigned user interface and support XAUTH as an authentication mechanism,  they do differ in several aspects.

    The Professional Edition is the full featured product for network security. It supports various encryption algorithms for very high security environments. It boasts extra features like multiple connections, connection export and certificate enrollment. This is the recommended edition for network administrators setting up their company's VPN.

    The Personal Edition is the more simplified version and is a perfect solution for anyone needing to secure a single network connection, for example between a home and an office network, or remote computer. This single connection can be between two hosts or between a host and a network.


    Availability & Upgrades

    VPN Tracker 3 Professional and Personal Edition are available starting today and can be purchased through the equinux online store (www.equinux.com/store) or through a member of equinux's worldwide consultant network (www.equinux.com/us/buy/consultants/).

    Any equinux customers who purchased VPN Tracker 2.x after Aug. 3rd will automatically apply for a free upgrade. Others customers wishing to upgrade their VPN Tracker 2.x versions will also be given special upgrade pricing starting at $23.90 for a single license upgrade. Multiple license upgrades are even further reduced.

    Read more...
    With the support of certificate-based authentication, equinux assures a highly scalable encryption system for greater identity protection in large-scale deployments and provides a safe method of distributing public keys.

    „The innovative features of VPN Tracker 2.0 speak for themselves“ said Till Schadde, equinux’s CEO. „We’ve not only focussed on the implementation of certificate support, but also concentrated on providing a graphically easy-to-use interface, including characteristics such as drag and drop to import and export certificates.“

    Certificates can be centrally managed by means of digital generation, signing and issuing, giving network administrators flexibility, control and greater reliability for establishing user identities on the internet. Each element of the network is authenticated and the validation by a trusted third party guarantees that keys are being exchanged between two known parties.

    VPN Tracker’s digital cryptology provides full scale CA services, including RSA keys and X.509 certificates for device authentication. It can respond to certificate-signing requests in PEM and DER format whilst existing certificates can additionally be imported in PKCS#12 format. Version 2.0 is also compatible with internal or external Certification Authorities (CA’s).

    Editions, Pricing and Availability

    VPN Tracker version 2.0 is, as previously, available in both personal and professional editions.

      Munich / Boston / Las Vegas  -  April 29, 2003
    Certificate Support featured in new Version 2.0
    "VPN Tracker is now ready to make its mark in the enterprise market".
    Read more...
    Just in time for NetWorld+Interop in Las Vegas, equinux announces a pre-release version of VPN Tracker, its unique Mac OS X IPsec client. In addition to the standard "pre-shared secret" method of authentication, the implementation of digital RSA certificates in version 2.0 has notably enhanced the scalability of VPN Tracker.

    Pre-shared secrets are impractical and do not scale well when deploying large-scale VPN installations. The support of certificates, however, builds upon the innovative features of VPN Tracker's previous releases to deliver greater ease and flexibility in handling VPN setups. Digital certificates act as electronic credentials and undoubtedly offer the strongest form of user authentication.

    Certificates can be issued, digitally signed, validated and managed centrally with VPN Tracker Version 2.0, thereby reducing management overhead and administratrative costs. User specific certificates eliminate requirements for password sharing and guarantee that only intended recipients or network devices have access to transmitted data.

    "With the support of certificates, VPN Tracker is now ready to make its mark in the enterprise market", reported Till Schadde, equinux's CEO. "Version 2.0 addresses vital elements of security reinforcement and applies even tighter control for accessing corporate networks."

    The modular design of VPN Tracker's built in certificate manager enables the control of all foreign as well as acknowledged certificates and certificate authorities (CAs). The exchange of X.509 certificates during key negotiation is now supported by VPN Tracker in various formats: PEM, DER and PKCS#12 certificates can be generated, signed, imported and exported. For Linux compatibility, VPN Tracker version 2.0 also encorporates a built in converter to export certificates in the public/private key format used by FreeS/WAN.

    Pricing and Availability

    VPN Tracker for Mac OS X Now Also Supports DrayTek Vigor Routers
    New VPN Tracker version 1.6.1 released.
    Read more...
    equinux Inc. has today announced a new VPN Tracker version that supports the entire range of DrayTek’s VPN featured Vigor Routers. Fast and secure connections to their firm’s network are now a breeze for mobile workers and telecommuters.

    „The combination of VPN Tracker and Vigor Routers is the most cost-effective solution on the market to quickly and easily install a VPN for less than 500 Dollar – and can even be used over simple DSL lines with dynamic IP addresses“ said Frederik Seiffert, equinux’s Head of Development. „With the support of DynDNS, the use of a VPN requires neither an expensive nor static internet line.“

    High security is a guarantee of equinux’s solution: VPN Tracker uses the IPsec protocol with the acknowledged cryptography algorithms 3-DES, MD5, SHA1 and Diffie-Hellman to communicate with the Vigor Routers. The adoption of powerful security in no way compromises ease-of-use: VPN Tracker comes with built in presettings for the Vigor product range, as well as extensive guidance for the set-up of routers and workstations. Even inexperienced users of VPN’s can effortlessly install and operate a Virtual Private Network (VPN) over the internet.

    The new VPN Tracker Version 1.6.1 is available as a download at http://www.vpntracker.com. A free 30-day demo period permits a full featured trial prior to the purchase of a license.

    Instructions for installing VPN Tracker with Vigor Routers can also be downloaded free-of-charge from the equinux website.

    Mac-CeBIT-News: New Version 1.6 of VPN Tracker for Mac OS X Released
    New release promises seamless integration of large networks.
    Read more...
    Hannover / Munich / Boston, 13.03.2003: On time for this year’s CeBIT in Hannover, equinux has released a new version of the popular VPN program for Mac OS X. VPN Tracker 1.6 includes significant improvements, enhancing the performance of the program in the business environment. Users in large and middle-sized enterprises are now able to route to a multiple number of their company’s networks via a VPN connection. This feature is particularly interesting for IT consultants, who want to help customers with the remote administration of their VPN.

    In the new version the support of VPN aplliances from SonicWALL, NetScreen and WatchGuard has been further optimized. equinux provides free Step-by-Step instruction manuals for this purpose. “Over recent weeks, we have further improved the compatibility of VPN Tracker with third-party devices from other manufacturers. The results speak for themselves: VPN Tracker for Mac OS X is the only product on the market that works together with an abundance of VPN devices“, said Matthias Spang, Manager of VPN Tracker Interoperability at equinux.

    Moreover, Version 1.6 sports a completely revamped user authorization concept. As a result system administrators are now able to allow normal users to start and stop the VPN connection on their own, without administrative authentication.

    VPN Tracker for Mac OS X is available in two versions, dependent on the type of implementation. A free 30-day-demo licence for both versions can be downloaded from the website.

    You can obtain additional information on the versions, detailed user instructions and data sheets, at www.vpntracker.com

    SonicWALL and equinux bring secure connectivity to Apple Macintosh Platform
    VPN Tracker on SonicWALL Firewall Appliances Creates Secure VPN Connections for Mac OS X.
    Read more...
    SonicWALL, Inc. (NASDAQ: SNWL), a leader in comprehensive Internet security solutions, announces a relationship with equinux Inc. to extend secure Virtual Private Network (VPN) connectivity to the Apple Macintosh OS X 10.2 platform. The union of equinux VPN Tracker and SonicWALL creates a solution that enables Mac-users to securely connect to the corporate network using the flexibility of the Internet, without compromising their companies’ interests.

    In today’s highly mobile business environment, employees are no longer restricted to working at their offices or from desktop computers. Running the equinux VPN Tracker, mobile and remote workers on the Macintosh platform can establish a secure VPN connection to a SonicWALL-secured corporate network from nearly anywhere in the world. The stateful packet inspection firewall capabilities of the SonicWALL firewall protect against the security threats that the Internet can pose, either from viruses and attacks or from the interception of private data.

    “We recognize that small and medium-sized businesses have heterogeneous network environments and require secure connectivity, regardless of their computing platforms,” said Douglas Brockett, SonicWALL vice president of worldwide marketing. “We’re pleased to work with equinux to extend our reach to the Macintosh market, bringing secure connectivity to Mac OS X users worldwide.”

    “This relationship combines SonicWALL’s leadership in security solutions for businesses with equinux’s strength in versatile VPN software,” said Ortwin Gentz, equinux vice president of CTO. “The end result allows Mac OS X users to safely and easily connect to their companies’ network while at home or on the road.”

    Compliant with all SonicWALL stateful packet inspection firewall appliances, equinux VPN Tracker software runs on a Macintosh system as a VPN Client, allowing mobile or remote workers to safely connect to a corporate network protected by a SonicWALL Internet security appliance.

    VPN Tracker is available in Personal and Professional Editions. The VPN Tracker Personal Edition is the ideal solution for mobile users who want to secure a single network connection such as an office dial-up connection or a remote computer. The VPN Tracker Professional Edition is full-featured for network routing capabilities, and can be used to connect two or more networks through a secure Internet tunnel.

    Pricing and Availability
    The SonicWALL-compatible equinux VPN Tracker for Mac OS X is now available in English language versions via the equinux website and from authorized equinux resellers worldwide. VPN Tracker pricing for the Personal Edition starts from US$/EUR 79.90 and the Professional Edition starts from US$/EUR 199.90. For more information, visit www.sonicwall.com or www.equinux.com.

    VPN Tracker is available – quick and easy secure networking with Mac OS X 10.2
    A powerful tool for IPsec networking that helps you connect to VPN hardware and software with Mac OS 10.2.
    Read more...
    Secure networking is becoming ever more important – the new equinux VPN Tracker helps you to set up such networks under Mac OS 10.2.

    You can easily establish a secure connection between two Mac OS X based computers using VPN Tracker. Just enter your partner’s IP-address and click "start". After a few seconds the connection will be established and all traffic using the standard internet protocols (e.g. file transfers) will be encrypted. VPN Tracker not only replaces expensive hardware, it also helps you to connect a “road-warrior” via dial-up connection to the office LAN.

    VPN Tracker makes securing Airport networks a snap: Once installed on a gateway Mac, all VPN Tracker equipped Macs in the WLAN send their data encrypted to the Airport station.

    VPN Tracker is the Mac OS X solution for a wide range of VPN systems that are currently not supported by the Apple platform. It comes with preconfigured settings for third party VPN devices.

    Based on the industry standard IPsec, connecting to other VPN software such as Windows 2000 or FreeS/WAN (Linux), is simple.

    Why use special hardware in your network to setup VPN gateways?
    VPN Tracker saves a lot of of money by connecting two or more offices through a secure internet tunnel connection, instead of using an expensive hardware solution.. Particularly in combination with Mac OS X 10.2 Server, VPN is the most economic security tool on the market for VPN connections.

    equinux presents plug-and-play solution for Mac UPS management
    APC Tracker now supports APC Network Management Cards.
    Read more...
    The equinux APC Tracker in combination with the widely-used APC Network Management Cards (i.e. APC Web/SNMP Card) is the perfect solution for protecting Macintosh networks against power failures. On startup, the application connects to the Network Management Card, which sends a signal to the client in case of a power failure in order to properly shut down the computer.

    Today, as computer networks spread through companies, a central UPS which safeguards all computers connected to the network is a solution both straightforward and economic. In this case, an application which powers down the computers connected to the UPS ideally communicates with the UPS over the network rather than a serial or USB connection. APC Network Management Cards, which add a network connection to an APC UPS, in conjunction with APC Tracker, the client software for Mac OS, build up the new dream team for robust Mac based productions environments. APC Tracker makes the task of securing a network of computers against power failures easier than ever - or just as easy as Mac users expect things to be.

    In addition to the new APC Network Management Card support, APC Tracker can also communicate with the open-source APCUPSd software, which runs under Unix (including Linux) and Windows.

    APC Tracker 2 offers the following great features:

    • real Macintosh-like plug-and-play installation and configuration
    • status window with information about the UPS battery, load, temperature, voltage, battery date etc.
    • emails in case of power failures or errors
    • adjustable shutdown timer
    • runs under both Mac OS 8/9 and Mac OS X

The final version is expected to be out in early 2002.

    equinux releases Macintosh client for UPS
    APC Tracker regularly powers off a Macintosh client computer once power is interrupted.
    Read more...
    Many companies are using UPS hardware from APC in a network to protect their computers from power failures. While networkable shutdown software is available for Linux and Windows users only, MacOS users haven't had such a option up to now.

    The equinux APC Tracker closes this gap: The application listens for signals from a network APCUPSd server that is directly connected to the UPS. In case of a power failure the client is thus able to shut down the Macintosh properly.

TV Pro 100% Mediathek für iPad und iPhone ist der schnellste Weg zu den besten deutschen Mediathek-Inhalten.

    TV Pro 100% Mediathek kostenlos im AppStore laden.

    VPN Tracker 365 jetzt mit mehr Kontrolle und Sicherheit: Remote Connection Wipe
    VPN-Verbindungen aus der Ferne löschen
    Read more...

    VPN Tracker, die führende VPN Software für Macs, bringt die Sicherheit von Datenverbindungen auf ein höheres Level: Mit VPN Tracker 365 lassen sich ab sofort VPN Verbindungen aus der Ferne löschen (Remote Connection Wipe). Damit können Administratoren zentral steuern, wer im Team VPN Verbindungen nutzen kann und so strengere Compliance Rules implementieren.

    VPN Tracker 365: Remote Connection Wipe
    Wechselt ein Mitarbeiter das Unternehmen, oder geht ein MacBook verloren, können Administratoren jetzt VPN Verbindungen direkt vom Mac des Mitarbeiters löschen. Die VPN-Verbindungen sind auf diesem Arbeitsplatz dann nicht mehr verfügbar. Um weitere Sicherheitsrisiken zu minimieren, werden beim Remote Connection Wipe alle Informationen über die VPN-Infrastruktur gelöscht.

    Mehr Kontrolle für mehr Sicherheit
    Zum einfachen Management der Verbindungen unter my.vpntracker.com lassen sich Teams mit Zugriff auf bestimmte VPN-Verbindungen definieren. So kann beispielsweise der temporäre Zugriff auf Verbindungen für Consultants oder Arbeitsgruppen für Projekte sicher gesteuert werden. Die Verwaltung der VPN-Verbindungen funktioniert ähnlich wie über ein Mobile Device Management (MDM) bei Mobilgeräten, wie etwa TARMAC (www.tower-one.net).

    VPN Tracker 365 - VPN-Sicherheit für Macs made in Germany
    Seit mehr als 15 Jahren ist VPN Tracker 365 die #1 VPN Lösung für Mac OS X und gilt als De-facto Standard. VPN Tracker ist 100% Made in Germany mit professionellem Support. VPN Tracker funktioniert herstellerunabhängig und bietet höchste Sicherheit bei Datenverbindungen (Military Grade) auf dem Mac. In VPN Tracker 365 sind alle VPN Tracker Versionen ab Mac OS X 10.6 enthalten und ist für das aktuelle OS X El Capitan optimiert.
