in Networks and FTP (E)

[] Chicago, Illinois - Yazsoft today released an important update to ShareTool, version 2.2. ShareTool is a smart, easy, and highly secure utility that lets you connect to most Bonjour services running on your home/office networks from anywhere in the world at a click of a button. This includes Screen Sharing, File Sharing, Remote Printing, Secure Browsing, and more. While connected with ShareTool, many shared (Bonjour-enabled) services on your remote home or office networks automatically appear in your Finder, iTunes, iPhoto, and tons of other applications (just as they would if you were physically located at that network). Further, and in response to massive demand, ShareTool 2.2 also delivers iTunes 10 Home Sharing across the internet, the ability to run ShareTool as a background service, and tons more!

For example, let's assume you're away for business or on vacation somewhere. With ShareTool, you would be able to:

* Encrypt all of your web traffic and route it through your home network
* Browse the web securely
* Listen to your entire home iTunes music library

* Control the screen of any of your home computers
* Grab that important file you forgot to bring with you

ShareTool automatically provides Bonjour over VPN connections as well. No messy configuration required.

In addition, you can now run ShareTool as a Mac OS X service via a background daemon. This means you don't actually need to be logged in as a user to share your network. Further, ShareTool 2 supports connecting to multiple networks at the same time! There no longer is a limit to the number of networks you can be connected to simultaneously.
