Compaq starts up networks

Compaq will ship a starter kit for LANs to help provide easier set-up of PC networks at small- and medium-sized businesses.

Compaq Computer will ship a starter kit for LANs (local area networks) in order to help provide easier set-up of PC networks at small- and medium-sized businesses.

The Compaq GroupWise starter kit will be provided at no additional cost to customers who purchase a 5-, 10-, or 25-user license for NetWare 4.1 via Compaq SmartStart, the company said.

GroupWise 4.1 is Novell's integrated groupware product which combines electronic mail, a personal calendar, group scheduling, task management, rules-based message management, and workflow routing.

The Starter Kit includes a 5-user version of GroupWise 4.1 and a 5-user version of Cheyenne's FAXserve 3.01. The kit will be shipped within five working days after the customer activates the NetWare 4.1 license and requests the additional software, Compaq said.

Installation, management, and performance of Compaq servers have been optimized for the Compaq GroupWise Starter Kit, the company added.

The GroupWise Starter Kit is available to qualified purchasers through December 31, 1996.

Instructions for requesting the Compaq GroupWise Starter Kit software are available via PAQfax, the automated fax-back information service from Compaq (CPQ).
