[prMac.com] Auckland, New Zealand - Slinkware today is pleased to announce that our innovative remote access product, Slink, is available as part of TheMacBundles - a bundle of 15 great Mac products for just $49.95.
The bundle includes a full Slink license, which normally sells for $25. Slink also is included in TheMacBundles' innovative new BYOB (Build Your Own Bundle) stores. TheMacBundles: No Games, No Hype, No Middlemen... Just GREAT Software at a GREAT Price(TM).
Slink is the easy way to remotely access your home network. Listen to your iTunes music and watch your movies from anywhere, get the files from your home Mac or Time Capsule that you forgot to bring with you on the road, or help your parents or kids out using remote screen sharing.
Slink's network magic makes your home network appear to be connected and all shared services automatically appear in the Finder, iTunes, iPhoto, and other applications, just as they do at home. With Slink you are only a click away from your home network, no matter where you are.
Slink supports almost all applications that use Apple's Bonjour technology, including:
* iTunes 10 Home Sharing
* Screen Sharing
* File Sharing
* iPhoto Sharing
* Print Sharing
Slink's advanced technology takes care of all the tricky network stuff. No need to know about NAT or IP addresses. Just install the Slink System Preferences Pane on a Mac in your home network. Then install Slink on the Mac that you use remotely, and you are ready to connect.
Some of the key features that sets Slink apart from the competition are:
* Requires almost no configuration
* Connects to your home network without the need for dynamic DNS or manual IP address configuration
* Gives you access to all Macs and Bonjour services on your home network
