CARL Corporation has announced the availability of its new Gateway Server, a prepackaged, seamless on-ramp to the Internet designed especially for libraries. The Gateway Server is a UNIX workstation with prepackaged software, designed to provide a front-end to any existing hardware platform, local area network, or mainframe computer. The server acts as a pathway to and from the Internet, providing World Wide Web access, Internet electronic mail capabilities, Gopher search and retrieval, Telnet, FTP, WAIS, and Z39.50 data transfer services.
A terminal emulation package is included to insure that any library terminal or PC using the Gateway Server can emulate a VT100 or variety of other terminal types required by Internet hosts.
The product has been designed to serve any library, not just those using a CARL system. CARL offers a full array of additional services, including set-up, support, and network administration.
