Sun, WRQ Solutions for PC-UNIX Integration

Sun Microsystems Inc. has named WRQ to provide solutions and support to customers of Sun’s Solstice Network Client and Solstice NFS Client products through WRQ’s Reflection. Solstice Network Client customers wishing to continue integrating their Sun Solaris applications with their current and future PC desktops can purchase the WRQ Reflection Suite for X and get WRQ’s PC X server, in addition to Solaris file access from a PC desktop. WRQ also offers its Guide Services to meet the ongoing technical support and maintenance needs of Sun’s customers.

Both companies have also established a bundle agreement, which will increase the reach of the WRQ Reflection Suite for X and Reflection NFS Connection software, which provide integration between Windows-based PCs and UNIX host systems. In accordance with this agreement, HP will ship Reflection products both pre-installed and bundled with the new Windows NT-based VISUALIZE P600C, P650C and P700C Personal Workstations.

A local version of WRQ Reflection X software, which provides precise rendering and integration of UNIX graphical applications from a PC desktop, will be pre-installed on all new HP VISUALIZE P600C, P650C and P700C Personal Workstations. WRQ Reflection NFS Connection, a utility that provides critical printing and file transfer services between Windows-based PCs and UNIX host systems, will also be installed on the Workstations. In addition, the workstations will be bundled with a 60-day trial copy of WRQ Reflection Suite for X, which includes a full version of Reflection X able to run remote X clients plus VT, TN3270 and TN5250 emulations.
