DAVE is a cross-platform networking utility for the MacOS. DAVE allows Macintosh users to participate in Microsoft networks. It offers full support for peer-to-peer networking and for Macintosh clients on a Windows NT network, including file sharing, Postscript printer sharing, and messaging services. Macintosh users normally mount Windows's shared volumes through the chooser, but can also browse the volumes using the DAVE application. The DAVE application now sports finder-style windows with support for Windows's long file names and drag-and-drop with the finder. Users can automatically translate between Windows file extensions and Macintosh type and creator codes. Also new in version 2.5 are desktop printing to shared Windows printers (requires Apple's LaserWriter 8 driver v8.6.5 or later), a setup assistant, and support for the Location Manager. DAVE requires a MacOS computer with a Motorola 68020 processor or better, 8 MB of RAM, and Macintosh System 7.6 or later. MacOS 8.x and 9.0 are fully supported including the multiple users feature of MacOS 9. A fully functional time-limited demo version is available online. A single license costs $149; a five pack is $599. Corporate and educational discounts are available for purchases of five or more licenses.
