Analyst(s): Serena Ann Lambiase


Esker's Tun PLUS v11 integrates Web-to-host, PC-to-host, and multiuser Windows access technologies. It offers a group of tools that provides accessibility to servers, data, and network resources and supports browser-based emulation access to legacy systems, AS/400, and Unix servers. Tun PLUS supports LDAP directories, and its robust database accessibility is a good feature for developers using Microsoft's Component Object Model (COM). Tun PLUS is geared towards users whose fundamental need is to replace PC-based terminal emulation with an intranet solution, and enterprises who wish to Web-enable their IBM and Unix environments.
