If you have both Acorn and non-Acorn machines on the same network, then LanMan98 is for you. LanMan98 allows RISC OS machines to access discs and printers served by SMB (Samba) and CIFS servers, such as Windows 95/NT, XP, 7, 8, 10 and Unix machines.
Please supply your LanMan98 serial number and an email address when ordering and a complete copy (with your serial embedded in it) will be emailed to you by WSS, if you do not receive your upgrade within 5 working days please email us from the address you were expecting the upgrade to arrive at. You can enter the serial number in the "Notes" section of the Checkout page.
The serial number will be on the original floppy disc label and also appears in the Info box e.g. 'Sold via CJE (09876)" when loaded stand alone. If you cannot find your serial number then please email us the LanMan98 module in !LanMan98.LanMan98 instead.
If you do not wish to receive the upgrade by email we can supply it on a floppy disc and post it to you, in which case the cost is £28

n.b. Windows automatic updates often change settings that stop communication via LanMan
LanMan98 is a CIFS client for RISC OS. In short, it enables RISC OS machines to access shared storage across a network, and also (with suitable printer drivers) to print to network printers.
This means that your RISC OS machine can transparently access drives shared on PCs, Macs, Linux and other operating systems, including dedicated Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices.
This makes LanMan98 ideal for any network with a mixture of machine types - I myself back my RISC OS machines up onto my PC, and share a single laser printer around all the machines in the house.
What's new in Version 2?
Version 2.0 brings various improvements; most notably support for encrypted passwords, improved handling of hidden files, and better operation with Vista and NAS servers. Other small tweaks to usability have been made too.
These fixes bring LanMan98 up to date with the security settings frequently found in industry networks, and allow increasingly prevalent/cheap NAS boxes to be accessed.
