SEATTLE-May 2, 2006-MetaInfo, a leader in network and Internet Protocol (IP) address management solutions, has announced Meta IP version 5.7, a major upgrade to its market-leading product for IP address, DNS, and DHCP management.

New features in v. 5.7 include:

  • Ability to concurrently manage both BIND 9 and BIND 8 services
