BLAST/COMMUNICATIONS RESEARCH GROUP
Application: Communications Product Name: Blast (Blocked ASynchronous Transmission) Description: Blast is high-speed asynchronous communications software available for PCs, Macs, minis and mainframe computers. Blast has two main functions: error-free file transfer and terminal emulation. Blast's 100 percent error-free capability makes it easy to distribute both text and binary files between different computers regardless of their operating systems. Blast's terminal functions can be used to allow PC and minicomputers to emulate terminals, upload and capture text files from online databases or other computers not equipped with Blast. The powerfl script language makes it easy to automate frequently used functions, create custom menus and integrate Blast into applications on PCs, Unix, DG/AOS and others. Price: Micros: $250; Minis: $495-$895; Mainframes: $1,295 plus Operating Systems: MS-DOS, RDOS, AOS, AOS/VS, VMS, Unix, Xenix, RT-11, TSX+, MAC, RTE, MPE, MVS/TSO, VM/CMS, CPM, Primos, BTOS, CTOS and others Languages: Fortran, C, Assembly Reference Number: 205 Contact: Blast Sales Dept.

CLAFLIN & CLAYTON, INC.
Application: Communications/networking Product Name: NFS/TCP Ethernet Network Software Description: NFS/TCP Network Software allows AOS/VS, AOS and RDOS systems to be interconnected via Etherne, as well as connecting to most other vendor's systems. The products include NFS Network file system server support for file access, FTP for file transfer, TELNET for remote logon (including VT 100 support), LPR for remote printing, SMTP for electronic mail and Unix 'r' commands. This allows IBM, DEC, Sun, Apollo, AT&T and many other vendors' systems to network with Data General systems. PRice: RDOS: $1,645; AOS (16): $2,545; AOS/VS: $2,545-$4,945 CPU: Desktop, Nova, Eclipse, MV/Family Operating Systems: AOS/VS II, AOS/VS, AOS, RDOS Reference Number:919: Contact: Donna LaMadeleine Telephone: (508) 393-7979
DATA GENERAL CORP.
SOFTWARE PRODUCTS AND SERVICES DIVISION
Application: Communications Product Name: AOS/VS Unattended RJE80 Description: AOS/VS Unattended RJE80 emulates the IBM 2780 and 3780 Remote Job Entry terminals. Without operator assistance, Unattended RJE80 allows file transfer between a local Data General system and a remote Data General installation or a remote site that supports IBM 2780/3780 RJE terminals. Unattended RJE80 can automatically dial a remote site, transfer files, receive files and write output to a logfile for later viewing--all without the presence of an operator.

DIGITAL DYNAMICS, INC.
Application: DG-PC connectivity Product Name: D:drive Description: D:drive is communications software that allows personal computers full access to the disk storage facilities of a Data General MV. D:drive uses the storage as if it were a separate drive for the PC. The software is transparent to DOS commands and PC application programs. The PC user may store any file onto the MV as well as access any file on the MV. D:drive uses the AOS/VS access control list, link files and printer queues. Terminal emulation software, DDTERM, is included. Existing asynch lines are used; no additional hardware is required. Price: $795: per DG MV; $125 per PC CPU: MV/Family Operating Systems: DOS, AOS/VS, MS-DOS Reference Number: 1047 Contact: Patricia Blessing Telephone: (313) 995-2400
PACER SOFTWARE, INC.
Application: Mac-to-host connectivity Product Name: PacerLink Description: PacerLink lets an Apple Macintosh communicate with a Data General host computer (MV/Family and AViiON), as well as many other minicomputers, providing terminal emulation, file transfer, print services and virtual disk capability. The Macintosh connects to the host computer via RS-232 (direct serial line, dial-up or terminal server), Ethernet or LocalTalk bridged to Ethernet. PacerLink emulates as Dasher/461 terminal, as well as six other terminal types such as a VT220 and Televideo 950. Pacerlink tightly integrates the Macintosh into the DG host computing environment, making such Macintosh features as multiple windows, command menus and Pacer's own mouse-operated SoftKeys available to host programs. In addition, PacerLink allows CEO users to export and import documents directly to and from the Macintosh.
