LAN Package Sends, Receives from Faxes and Modems

IDR UniCom, Inc. is now shipping Via PC LAN Software, an integrated Local Area Network package that sends and receives through both fax boards and modems from a single user interface, as well as telex transmissions.

Some LAN users who communicate internationally also have the need to telex messages overseas. Instead of wrestling with multiple network communications software packages they can now use one: Via PC LAN Software."

Via PC LAN Software includes all of the features of its stand-alone companion, Via PC Version 5.0. Additional LAN features include:

* Direct "network-shareable" support for real-time fax functionality with the Hayes JT FAX 9600 and Intel SatisFAXtion fax boards. Additionally, Via LAN supports the entire line of Macronix MaxFax boards as well as virtually any other fax board on a non-shareable basis.

* One-keystroke access to the most popular online services, including AT&T EasyLink, MCI Mail, CompuServe, Dow Jones News/Retrieval, Lexis/Nexis, Westlaw and others of your choice.

* "Foreground Alert," which automatically notifies users when a message has been received in background via modem. With the addition of this feature, network workstations can become their own electronic mailboxes because incoming messages are automatically routed to the individual's workstation directory. …
