Question:

Can ExtremeZ-IP replace Cyan Software’s MacServerIP which has not been upgraded to support Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard and Windows 2008 Server?

Answer:

With Cyan’s lack of upgrades and technical support for MacServerIP, Group Logic recognizes the need of customers for a supported, compatible AFP server solution on the Windows platform.

ExtremeZ-IP 5.3 replaces nearly all of the functions of MacServerIP for connecting from a Macintosh to a Windows computer for file sharing and printing including AppleTalk protocol.

As you review the options and alternatives for a solution to replace MacServerIP, you should consider ExtremeZ-IP. The product is an ideal replacement, equivalent to MacServerIP since it effectively replaces nearly every feature of Mac ServerIP including file sharing over AFP, printing over TCP/IP and Appletalk, and includes the AppleTalk protocol for Windows Server 2008, Windows 2003 Server, Windows Vista and Windows XP. ExtremeZ-IP offers many additional features and innovations added by Apple and Group Logic as the Apple Filing Protocol has evolved from the original AppleShare to the modern AFP v3.2 functionality of Mac OS X Leopard.
