Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

The award-winning Timbuktu Pro 2000 puts the power of remote control, file transfer, and Internet communications on your desktop. Timbuktu Pro 2000 is the ideal solution for mobile workers, telecommuters, day extenders, and users that need to connect and communicate with other computers. Across the Internet, over direct telephone lines, and across multiple platforms, Timbuktu Pro 2000 offers a high performance solution for all your remote access needs.

High-speed Communication
Timbuktu Pro 2000 works over Internet, LAN, WAN, Dial-up, DSL or RAS connections. With new Remote Control advancements, we are now faster than ever. The interactive keyboard Chat feature provides text-based communication ease and increased personalization.

Multiple Access Mode Technology
Over Internet, Network, DSL, Dial-up, and from Dial Direct connections provides a choice of connectivity options for virtually any environment insuring that any mobile worker, telecommuter, or collaborator can connect and communicate without fail.

Remote Administration
It's simple to check on your Windows NT or web server with Timbuktu Pro 2000 from any location, using any platform-even from your Mac! You can establish connections to multiple machines: troubleshoot a server, collaborate with a colleague and transfer files to your home computer-simultaneously.

Seamless Network Neighborhood Integration
Timbuktu Pro 2000 integrates directly into the operating system to help make management and deployment of the software smooth and easy. For example, you can browse through the Network Neighborhood and "right click" to select any Timbuktu Pro 2000-enabled machine to establish a remote control session. Or, you can create shortcuts to the computers you regularly control right on your desktop for easy access.

Supreme Security
Timbuktu Pro's ironclad security provides state-of-the-art secure screen blanking, password encryption, user level defined privileges, password aging, event logging, master password protection, and more. The attended access feature prompts users to ask for permission before attempting to control your computer or being admitted as a temporary guest. For complete site-based security, Timbuktu Pro 2000 is compatible with Timbuktu Pro Enterprise (available separately) which includes the Timbuktu Pro 2000 Administrator's Toolkit, push network installers and Timbuktu Pro Site Key generators. For administrators, Timbuktu Pro 2000 integrates with NT Security Lists to help ease password management and administration.

Exchange Files With Anyone
With Timbuktu Pro 2000 you can access the hard drive of a remote machine and transfer to or from it. And if you can't find the file, let Timbuktu Pro 2000 find it for you with its File Find feature built right into Timbuktu Pro's exchange. Nothing is faster nothing is more complete, and nothing will make your life easier than the file exchange capabilities included with Timbuktu Pro 2000.

Internet Locator
Timbuktu Pro 2000 makes it easy for anyone to quickly find users on the Internet or LAN, especially those Timbuktu Pro 2000 users with dynamic IP addresses-like the ones handed to you from your ISP. The Timbuktu Pro Internet Locator server is hosted by Netopia 24 hours a day; it matches your email address with your TCP/IP address in real-time, whenever you are online. Any Timbuktu user can take advantage of the Internet Locator service and connect to any other Timbuktu Pro 2000 user simply by knowing their email address.

LDAP Support
Timbuktu Pro now supports the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) for scalable Timbuktu Pro directory services. No more typing of cryptic TCP/IP addresses to connect to another user. Simply browse the LDAP directory for the target machine and you're connected with one click ease.

5.0 out of 5 stars Timbuktu Pro 2 Mac/ Win 2 user licence 8 Oct 2001
By A Customer
A way cool piece of software.
I use it to assist my 70 and 85 year old parents sort things out on their Mac (G3 192Mb RAM) remotely from my Windows 98 based machine. It has proved its worth being able to help them out while travelling for business in Europe and the US or when I'm at home.
The principle constraint is the performance of the UK telephone system and their line speed(56K split in 2 channels is a tad sloooow).
The utility appeals to my technical background. I learned to program with Punch cards on MVS boxes. I just find it amazing that in the 15 years since I did my training that such tools have become available. It is so cool. Way to go Netopia.
I like the way that it enables me to support my father, who learned to use a computer at 75 on a Mac LC3 through an upgrade to an iMac and connection to the internet, from my Windows background. Had the software not been available it might have been necessary to migrate my parents over to Windows which would have been a struggle. They both get on with Mac.
The best feature is the find user by email address. It means I can use local access ports and connect to thier machine over the internet while travelling internationally thus keeping the costs of phone bills down.
After MS office and Norton AV probably the most useful application on my and their machines. All those people who say Mac's and Windows machines won't talk to each other should try this package, Office Mac 2001 and MS Office 2000. This is usable consumer friendly machine interoperability.
The total install and test time for Timbuktu on both machines was no more than half an hour including reading the manual.
I'd give it six stars if I could.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for most remote control uses on a LAN 17 Jan 2001
By James Pearson - Published on Amazon.com
I've used the Timbuktu line for quite a few years now and have had good success overall. I recommend it highly for people who want remote control on local area networks. What truly stands out with this product is that it runs on all Windows computers (95 and above), as well as MacOS computers. Timbuktu 2000 brings some nice features for Windows platform computers. I've seen a few small quirks here and there on Win 2000, but nothing major. Overall, a good product!
