                         PRODUCT ANNOUNCEMENT

February 3, 1997 ... SCO is now accepting orders for Release 3.5.2 of 
the SCO Advanced File and Print Server. Product, upgrade and availability 
information follow:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

PRODUCT NAME:   SCO Advanced File and Print Server

DESCRIPTION: The SCO Advanced File and Print Server, combined with SCO 
 OpenServer Release 5, provides a highly-integrated environment for PCs 
 running DOS, OS/2, Windows 3.1, Windows for Workgroups 3.11, Windows 
 NT or Windows 95 operating systems to access files and printers on an 
 SCO OpenServer system, while also providing the application and database 
 server features of an SCO OpenServer system. The SCO Advanced File and 
 Print Server is completely integrated with SCO OpenServer Release 5 to 
 simplify creation and administration of network resources. Directories 
 and files on an SCO OpenServer system are accessed from a Windows PC as 
 another DOS drive. Printers on a UNIX System server can be accessed 
 directly from Windows applications as if they were connected directly 
 to PCs.

 The Advanced File and Print Server represents SCO's continued
 enhancement of Microsoft LAN Manager for SCO Systems to be fully
 compatible with SMB-based Microsoft networking technology.  Advanced
 File and Print Server is based on Microsoft Windows NT 3.5.1 source
 code, which SCO licensed as part of its agreement with AT&T.
 
 Administration of the SCO Advanced File and Print Server has been
 integrated with SCO OpenServer system's SCOadmin utility so that
 creation of LAN resources such as shared files and printers, and the
 creation of users, can be done from a single UNIX System administration.  
 The NT Server Tools used to manage Windows NT Servers from Windows 
 desktops are also provided.  The NT Server Tools allow users to manage 
 resources created on the SCO Advanced File and Print Server, or on 
 Windows NT Servers, from a Windows for Workgroups, Windows 95 or 
 Windows NT desktop.

NEW FEATURES IN THIS RELEASE:

 -Support for files and directories that contain mixed-case characters.  
  This is a tunable parameter, and comes as the default behavior.

 -File name mapping enables older DOS and Windows clients to see an 8.3
  representation of long file names.

 -This release fully interoperates with Windows NT 4.0.  This includes 
  the ability to access shared resources using a server's IP address or 
  internet name only, without knowing the server's real name.

 -Windows NT 4.0 Server Tools are included, for administration of SCO
  Advanced File and Print Server from the NT 4.0 client.

 -SCO Advanced File and Print Server has been localized to fully support 
  French and German languages, including localized server messages, 
  installation menus, net commands, man pages, release notes, and the 
  SCO Advanced File and Print Server Administrator's Handbook.

 -SCO TermLite terminal emulator is available to use as a share on the 
  server, or for installation on the individual client machine. TermLite 
  provides SCO ANSI and VT320 terminal emulation via connectivity over 
  TCP/IP (telnet), or VTP (NetBEUI) network protocols.  Clients supported 
  include Windows 3.x, Windows 95, and Windows NT.

 -This release supports the ISO 8859-1 8-bit character set, which includes 
  most Western European accented characters.

 -An in-place upgrade from Release 3.5.1 is fully supported. Existing SCO 
  Advanced File and Print Server shares, user accounts and licenses are 
  automatically retained.

 -Windows 95 and Windows NT clients can now browse SCO Advanced File
  and Print Server systems across routers and Point-to-Point (PPP)
  connections.

 -Full documentation is now included in the base product.  This includes 
  Release Notes, Administrator's Handbook, System Guide, and the Concepts 
  and Planning Guide.  The Release Notes and Administrator's Handbook 
  include versions in French and German. Additionally, a new chapter on 
  using SCO Advanced File and Print Server in a wide-area network has 
  been added to the SCO Advanced File and Print Server Administrator's 
  Handbook.

 -By default, SCO Advanced File and Print Server 3.5.2 provides
  connectivity for 1 user.  A license key is not required during
  installation to operate SCO Advanced File and Print Server in 1-user 
  evaluation mode.  A base 5-user license must be installed before 
  additional client licenses can be added.

 -Two new utilities allow server name and domain name reconfiguration
  without initialization of the user accounts database.

 -There are now net commands to manage trust relationships, access
  permissions, local groups, and auditing.  As before, these functions 
  can also be managed via the Windows tools.

 -A new server parameter, write_behind, enables SCO Advanced File and
  Print Server to notify a client when a filesystem is out of space.
