ShareTool 2 delivers a powerful Back to My Mac alternative

in Networks and FTP (E)

[] Chicago, Illinois - Yazsoft today is pleased to announce a major new upgrade to ShareTool, version 2. Crafted exclusively for Mac OS X 10.5.8 and later, ShareTool 2 lets you connect to all of the Bonjour services on your home or office network from anywhere in the world securely over a 100% SSH encrypted connection. This includes iTunes Music Sharing, Screen Sharing, File Sharing, printing, and more. You can listen to your entire iTunes music library at work, control the screen of any of your home computers, or grab that important file you forgot to bring with you.

And this is simply the tip of the iceberg. With ShareTool, it's as if you've never left your own network! What's more; ShareTool 2 now supports connecting to multiple networks from one simplified location! This is especially useful for providing tech support to your clients, assisting a friend, or helping a family member. From your Mac, you will have access to every single mac on every single ShareTool network you are connected to. All this is as easy as clicking a button. No technical know-how required.

Whoever said you can't be in more than one place at the same time clearly has not tried ShareTool 2. How is ShareTool different from Apple's Back to my Mac? ShareTool is similar to Back To My Mac (BTMM) but there are some significant differences:

* BTMM only works with Screen Sharing and File Sharing. ShareTool also works with iTunes, iPhoto, SFTP, and many third-party applications.
* ShareTool doesn't require a yearly subscription
* BTMM must be running on each computer you intend to access. You only need to launch ShareTool on one computer at home. Your entire network will be made available, including Time Capsules and AirPort Disks
* You can connect to multiple networks at once with ShareTool 2
* ShareTool 2 really is the ultimate Back To My Mac alternative
