Features

The 1100 does just one thing - file sharing - but does it very well. All major network File and Transport protocols are supported, with the 1100 able to emulate Win NT4 and 2000, NetWare 3.12, AppleShare 6.0, and NFS 3.0 servers.

Most network client types are also supported including:

  • Microsoft Windows (Win95 up)
  • Novell NetWare
  • MacOS System 7.5.5 and up
  • Unix (Sun Solaris 7 and 8; SCO Openserver 5.0.5; AIX 4.3; HP-UX 11
  • Linux

If that isn't flexible enough for you, the 1100 also supports read-only access via HTTP (web browser), and full read/write access via FTP.

Tip TIP: Make sure your FTP client doesn't try to use the LIST -la command to list hidden files. The server doesn't seem to like it and will disconnect you.

The SnapOS also includes a Java Virtual machine that is used to run optional capabilities called SnapExtensions. There's really only one of these - Server-to-Server Synchronization (S2S) - which enables a Snap server to automatically synchronize with another on a scheduled basis. It's street priced at about $250 and you need a license for each Snap server involved in the file sync.

Enabling the Java Virtual machine, however, also lets you force the use of Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) for all web-browser-based transfers with the 1100. This ensures the security of not only administering the server, but also file downloads via any web-browser's built-in SSL capability.
